Hello all,

Can anyone tell me how someone who is a part time resident gets billed by WAPA when they are not living on island at the time?
Is there a base rate that is charged? I couldn't find anything on the WAPA website.

Thanks

As long as you have everything turned off and not using ANY electricity.

Leaving our fridge running it is around $45 per month.
Have heard pros and cons on leaving the fridge running. I belive the pro that it is better for the fridge and we can leave some things in there.
We leave a bucket of ice cubes in the freezer along with nmany bottles of frozen water. That way of the power goes out, the frozen water will keep things cold for a while and the ice cubes while doing the same thing will tell us if the power was out long enough that the cubes melted and we should throw out things.
So far we have never had to throw out anything.
You can pay your bill on line.

My downstairs apt has been empty for quite a while - it has its own meter - I only have the fridge running and it varies between $12 and 17 each billing period. $45 seems like a lot - is the water heater on?

No, turned the water heater off. It went up after we bought a new energy efficent model. The old one died at 16 years old. Don't know if it was because of the new unit, or just WAPA increases. There was a several month gap of only the fridge running.
Your's might be cheaper even with a seperate meter since you have another meter and is it a single bill with two ammounts?

2 meters - 2 bills - I have an on/off switch for each of the water heaters -both up and down - located in a convenient place inside and if I use it regulary I can cut my upstairs bill by about $20 month - however adjusting the hot water temperature to where I can just stand the hot water in the shower with no added cold water seemed to make the biggest price reduction - why heat it hotter than you need? It is plenty hot to wash dishes and cut grease.
