Most people renting apartments in Panama use gas which is connected to the apartment building's central infrastructure, thus, gas payments are part of rent. If one lives in a house, they must find a provider themselves.
An average price for gas is usually anywhere between $15-$40 USD for an apartment.
There is only one electricity provider in Panama called Union Fenosa. The service is turned on after making an appointment with UF and making a deposit. Once this is done, it takes one to two weeks for an employee to come to your home and turn on the electricity. The sooner that you make your appointment, the better.
Most places in Panama use 110 volt, but there is actually some variation in sockets between type A and type B. You should bring plugs for both.
