    sayang half lang kami ng 500 eh. alam ko ganito na rin sa US eh, kaya nagdedevelop sila ng appliances na may clock, like for example ref na nag-a-autodefrost lang pag off peak since malakas sa kuryente ang defrost.

    During the TOU peak hours, is the rate of electricity the same or more expensive than the rate of electricity for regular subscribers?...

    I am asking this to assess the chance that the TOU subscriber would end up paying more than the regular subscriber, given that there is no change in his schedule/habit on electricity usage.

    Up ko lang, hoping someone could answer this, based on his/her experience of running TOU for a few months....

    I am planning to apply for TOU,- and I am doing my benchmarking and due diligence.

    IIRC, for peak times, TOU rate is higher by around 1 peso per kwhr. So if your electrical load is concentrated during the peak hours and cant be moved to offpeak, you may end up paying more.

    TOU worked for me bec I run a 1.5 and a 2 hp aircon at night. We dont run the AC in the morning since we are out.

    Thanks for the information bro.

    Yes, we run our AC units at night... I-delay ko na lang siguro ang pag turn-on, to 9PM...

    Also, our daily washing,- i advance na lang namin to 6AM-8AM....

    Yes. The meter has seperate readings for peak and off peak. Your bill will also show your peak and off peak usage.

    Off peak ay 9pm to 8am Mon to Sat, bro...

    Yes, kung buksan mo AC ng 7pM (sa amin 6pm lang bukas na... hahaha!), peak rate ang charge sa iyo hanggang 9pm. And then off peak rate na starting 9pm......... up to 8am... Pero take note, super malakas ang konsumo mo for the first hour ng aircon dahil pinapalamig niya ang kuwarto... and then maintenance na lang ng temperature...

    Walandyo,- ginawa mo naman akong guinea pig... Dive na tayo rito...

    Thinking aloud: If I can save P500 a month in electric bills,- then ROI(vs. bayad ng meter et al) is about 6 months....
