I know how much I'm charged per kilowatt hour, just need to know the formula to find out how much it'll cost to run my 1k watt 12/12 for flowering around 2 months. Thanks
LOL, OG--I wish my electric company did math that way....(.25 x 12) = 3.00 per day.OGKushman said:1,000 watts ran for 1 hour... is 1 Kilowwatt per hour
*if electricity costs .25 cents per kilowatt per hour(kW/h)... and you run 1,000 watts for 12 hours; then you will be charged (.25 x 12) = 2.50$ per day.
ya where i live it's .34 Cents per KWH..... So for me to run my 1k watt it'd cost me $114.24.... A month... So all in all, my power bill will probably be around 200 bucks with everything else... I'm gonna cryJericho said:So you can pay up to 0.30c per KW? thats mad hehe.
That just doesn't sound right to meJericho said:my 600w cost me 60 euro a month to run 24/7, thats 78 usd. If i keep under my tier.
What i did though was stop using anything else electrical. No electric kettle, heater, etc. Changed all my lights to low w cfls. water heater only goes on once a day. You easily lower the other consumption as THG said
Yeh i know. I rechecked my rates off the site. 5 tier plan works like so.PartyBro420 said:That just doesn't sound right to me
How would you rack up 78 USD in a month for just a 600w light at $0.023 per kw/h? By my calculation it would be a 10th of that?
I pay $0.065 per kw/h in the first tier and in the second it's $0.095 per kw/h
Even at that price running a 1000w light 24/7 for a month shouldn't be 78 USD
hope your partner is prepared to be bumped into the 2nd and possibly 3rd tier---might consider another break down cause he will be pissed when it comes time to pay that bill---EsC420PoT said:well the delema with that, is it's not run from my property, it's ran from my partners property, and his family lives there... So I could do that no problem, but since it's not my house, I can't expect them to do so.... I'm simply trying to find out for his benefit, since he pays the pg&e, and I pay everything else. But thanks for the heads up on that, i'll throw that info his way, but since hes got his sister and fiance, as well as his mother and grandmother living with him, I doubt that will happen... Lol.
