A 55 year old Ayutthaya woman was surprised to receive a power bill for more than eight million baht. Ayutthaya is a few hours drive north of Bangkok.

Tanyanan Ketparn told Thai Rath that she was always punctual with monthly electricity bill payments, which is normally around 18,000 baht (which still sounds a lot unless Tanyanan is running a business of some sort).

“Last month, I paid 30,000 baht because my two sons came home for a summer break.”

She says she was shocked to see a bill for 8,037,742.63 baht arrive in the mail and immediately called the power company.

“They apologised and issued a new bill for just 13,328.07 baht.”

The Thaiger asks, when there are mistakes from power utilities, how come the mistakes are a higher power bill?!
