Check the number of billing days--sometimes it's as low as 29, or as high as 33--and that can make a seemingly big difference in the amount. Or, they've adjusted the "brandshoftclausual" (sp?) up from the previous .2478.... (think that was the bc factor, don't have a bill in front of me right now)

Granted in the states our water and electric is not as high for those living on Bonaire, however our electric bill has doubled. $90 last month, no airco, and there is just 2 of us. Our water bill runs about $500 per year.

Even Dick Turpin had the decency to wear a mask!

Checked my bills (betw house, biz, ofc = 3 water & 3 elect)--all have either 32 or 33 days in the billing period (the ones with the oct 14 due date). For me, this is a big difference if the last billing period was only 29 days. The brandstofclausule is the same .2478...blahblahblah, so that's not the reason for an increase. Writing a 5 figure cheque to WEB seems usual by now. Ugh.

"System?" That implies logic.......

Just got the new bill handed to me, and it is 1300 guilders less than last month ... of course, it covered the first half of September which is the lowest occupancy season of the year. Still, at least it doesn't go up *every* month. Just 11 out of 12.
