I've just been reviewing my budget for this month, I just realise that we don't have any utility bill due. Normally the electricity bill would have been due by now. Thanks to the power of the sun and the work of our solar panels we only owe $2.88 for this quarter. Because it is below $10 they don't require a payment they will just add it on to the next bill. I'm hoping next electric bill will be even better, maybe we can get some credit instead. We lost about 2 weeks worth in the last quarter because the inverter wasn't working properly. It is all sorted now and we have not any problem since then.

Any saving we can get from this should hopefully help with the transport cost this year. Both petrol cost and train cost has gone up a lot this year. Two months ago they increase the public transport ticket by about 10%+ again.

    I think it is amazing how much utilities seem to have been affected for most people. It leads to a big strain on the budget in many cases, and can even affect people's commutes to work! In the part of the world where we live, the utility companies will just not bill people for several months at a time (corrupt, lazy, incompetent, or all of the above) and then they expect people to pay for it all at once. And they usually have some insurance that it will happen, because they will also turn off the power with little or no warning.
