How To Calculate Electricity Usage Cost

If you would like to calculate your own power usage, use the following formula with your power bill:

  1. Know your wattage: Find how many total watts you will be using.

  2. Multiply times 0.001 to find kilo-watt hour.

  3. Multiply by 5 hours a day to find kwh/day.

  4. Multiply by 30 days to find kwh/season.

  5. Multiply by 11.2 cents, or your cost of power usage found on your electric bill, to calculate cost.

Example: One string of 1000 LED lights will increase your bill around £1.5, (approx. all season)

For the second year running!
