As we have serious plans to move to Bonaire we like to know what the average monthly bill for both water and electricity is. This based on a "average" house and 2 (window +/-9000 BTU) airco's on during each night of 8 hours and normal waterusage. This by an occupation of normally 2 persons.

Depends on your habits.

Hi guys: So far no one has said what the cost of water is per month. Is there a monthly minimum fee and a set amount of water for that fee? (then of course if you go over the fee goes up) Also is the waste removal fee included with that or separate?

Garbage pick up is on your water bill here. The bill starts at 25,00 fls (20 min. for water, 5 for trash p/u). That's about $15 together. Then it's how you use your water--some people can keep it below $50/m, others go into the hundreds. Homes have septic tanks here. Depending upon its size, you have to pay to have that cleaned out every xx months (smaller ones need emptying sooner, etc). There are a few companies that do this, and I think it's around $40. Electricity bills come separately. I've found that I pay about 4x more than my friends/family in the US, for what appears to be the same usage of water & electricity.

The price of water is 13.00 per M3 the first m3 are subsidized. They charge a price for the first 2 M3. and every M3 above gradually will go up in price till the max of 13.00 m3. Web nv also has a list of the cost of running your appliances if you send them a note they will gladly fax or mail you this list.

Today I was told that with fuel surcharges electricity on Bonaire is now NAF 1,00 (US$0.571) KWH. Is this correct as of December 4, 2007?
|By Randl (New BonaireTalk Poster - Post #3) on Friday, December 7, 2007 - 9:17 pm:|
I had a good chat with the W.E.B. folks today. The exact rate per KWH depends, to some extent, on the amount you use. But the difference doesn't vary more than about NAF 0.09.
