Water and Electricity connection
When you buy a house, the connection for water and electricity must be transferred to your name. This is only possible after you have been to the notary for the transfer. For this you go to the WEB, the Water and Electricity Company Bonaire. It is best to make an appointment in advance for water and electricity connection, preferably 1 to 2 weeks before the transfer:
1. By phone: (+599) 715 8244
2. WEB office: Kaya Gresia z/n
You pay a deposit when you connect. These costs are:
1. Connection Fee: $40
2. Water Deposit: $100
3. Deposit Electricity:
– normal connection capacity (3×35 kVA): $150
– if you have a higher connection capacity like f.e. 3×80 kVA then the deposit is: $370
4. Deposit per airconditioner: $75
After the sale of a home, the customer must request a refund of the deposit, which is not automatic when closing. Approximately 6 weeks after the transfer you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org stating the customer number, your bank account number with bank details and a copy of your passport. It will then take 10 business days before the deposit is returned to your account.
a) Your home (3×35 kVA) has 1 airconditioner, then you pay $365: $40 costs and $325 deposit
b) Your home (3×35 kVA) has 2 airconditioners, then you pay $440: $40 costs and $400 deposit
c) Your home (3×35 kVA) has 3 air conditioners, then you pay $515: $40 costs and $475 deposit
You can pay this deposit in cash or via pin at the cash register, but you can also transfer it to:
# MCB Bonaire: 915.041.02
# RBC Bonaire: 8400.0000.2305.7557
