Chesca and Doug Kramer shared that they shocked upon receiving their bill on electricity due to its whopping amount.
When Doug and Chesca Kramer built their house, they wanted to make sure that it would have everything they need. And by ‘everything’, the couple really had everything that anyone could ever dream of having in their house – including their own outdoor swimming pool, home theater, and an elevator!
For many of their fans, the Team Kramer house is the best one on the planet. It even has its own homeschooling classroom and play area. It also appears to be constantly kept cool by AC units all over the place.
But with great power [usage] comes great responsibility because Team Kramer would soon be shocked by their first electricity bill: Php79,000! Whoa.
Doug recalled, “I was in the kitchen and then I opened the Meralco bill really, really slowly. And then, lo and behold, PHP 79,000.
“I’m like, I think this was wrong. I think we made the house too big.”
Well, their home is 550 square meters, with all the great and luxurious amenities.
So they did some upgrades that would ensure they don’t go overboard their electricity consumption.
The Kramers share that they wanted a house that is green-engineered to match their lifestyle.
Other people might have had a fit over the huge bill but Doug and Cheska quickly realized that it was simply the consequence of having a big house with lots of appliances and stuff that use up electricity. They tried reducing their consumption through better appliances. They used LEDs and installed inverter-type air conditioning units and refrigerators.
The biggest leap they took to save energy costs at home was to use install solar panels on their home.
