If you think you pay too much for electricity/your landlord is scamming you

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

At my previous rental property, twice while I was away my electric bill was higher than when I am home for the month. First time I was away 3 weeks the next 10 days. So complaining to them, they turned off my power during the day !!! WTF.

"Any licensee or consumer may refer a dispute, under the Tariff or under a contract, relating to electric power service to the EAC for resolution.

EAC is here to help you in getting better electric power service at reasonable rate in your home, industry or business.


Have you just reported your landlady Vlad? Did you have any success?

I have​ threatened EDC with their regulating body before about doing the paperwork for a new connection in a timely manner. Surprisingly it worked. 2 days later i was connected.

I have also visited the EDC head offices here in PP. The girl just laughed when i told her about the difference between the landlady's and EDC's rates. She said the rules they have don't apply to tourists. I didn't bother explaining to her that I had been living, working and paying tax here for the last 6 years.

I think we've heard enough recently about their supply voltage not being up to regulatory scratch.
See crook!!!
