The weather in Thailand right now is making us want to stay in an air-conditioned room all day, even at night when it should be cool, the humidity still makes us sweat. Khon Kaen has been using 30% more electricity than usual in the province, looking at the overall picture, Thailand as a nation has been using 4% more electricity than usual.
The PEA has the ability to produce enough electricity for users in all provinces of Thailand. The average use for electricity this month is at 29,680 megawatts. The PEA estimates that after April customers will be using less power, especially electricity for home air-conditioning. Hopefully when the Thai summer ends our electricity bills will be kinder to us.
The PEA or the Provincial Electricity Authority in Khon Kaen located on Kasikorn Thung Sang road has opened a brand new building as the second PEA building in Khon Kaen province. The PEA reports that the building will be able to support 179,000 electricity users in the districts under the control of the local PEA in Khon Kaen province.
The PEA has also installed a new service system called the Smart Service. This system will allow customers to finish all the electrical services requested in one day. Sompong Preeprem from the PEA stated that the Khon Kaen office is responsible for the electricity production in over 6 districts including, 1. Khon Kaen City, 2. Nam Pong district, 3.
