The View From Your Electric Bill: 7.8 cents/kWh in Bogota

 Today, I’m returning to The View From Your Electric Bill, a series of posts designed to float the ultimate Venezuelan political heresy: maybe, just maybe, idiotically low electricity prices in Venezuela have a little something to do with overconsumption and, thereby, with the electric crisis. 

Today we get to la Hermana República, Colombia, which is as closed to a matched pair with Venezuela as a country could be. In Colombia, 55 kWh will set you back 8,270 pesos. Which works out to US$0.078 per kilowatt hour – and that’s AFTER  a 50% subsidy!

Send us your electric bill! We’ll black out your personal details. The address is caracaschronicles at fastmail dot fm
