Re: Status of various things in Bangsaphan

The cost of the setup will depend on the size of your house and of course your consumption. We get through anywhere between 600 and 800 units per month depending on the season (a/c on more in the hot season naturally). The bills vary wildly from around 1,600 up to over 3,000 and seem to be numbers p...

Re: Status of various things in Bangsaphan

Another weekend, another power outage - almost three hours on Sunday afternoon. I'm now in the process of getting quotes for solar power for the full house - brief calculations suggest it will be paid back in 4-5 years as the electric bills are going up. A that does not factor in savings on lost pro...

Re: A trip to support Prachuap FC

Thai football has become so farcical that I have given up following it.

Re: Status of various things in Bangsaphan

Today the Koi pond pump has gone bang after the latest transformer explosion and power outage this morning.

Be prepared - it gets expensive replacing stuff.

Re: Status of various things in Bangsaphan

Yep, its also something I'm considering, there is a shop up on the Petchkasem road that has a few of them - the new quiet ones.

Re: Status of various things in Bangsaphan

Coral and they have connections (and good power...) The power company (PEA) is useless, Coral has its own private transformer, you will be on the public one unless you buy your own - which still won't help you when it goes out up the line (every third day at the moment). Questions for the assembled...

Re: Status of various things in Bangsaphan

Try and get a backup power supply, or install solar adding the wiring as you build. Those outages are getting worse - had three this week, and its only Thursday!

Good luck.

Re: Bangsaphan Coronavirus/Covid-19 updates

Yeh, they turned up in late afternoon on New Year's Eve and shut the few bars and restaurants that were open. Meanwhile, the mafia and millionaire owned hotels continued with their big parties and it sounded like quite a raucous night.

Re: Bangsaphan beach land price guide

This thread is about land prices, not the cost of living. Yes, the odd multi-million baht resort or beachfront property has sold to very wealthy Thais but the majority of land in the area is still for sale and still overpriced IMO. Those that are not in a hurry to sell will just leave it priced high...

Re: Noisy kite at night!

They're both down today and they're too high to get a photo of unless you have an 800mm telephoto lens.

They seem to serve no practical purpose whatsoever aside from producing noise.

Re: Noisy kite at night!

Noisy kite season has kicked in again - two of them visible from our place, not loud enough to keep you awake at night though.
