Check Watts Used by an Appliance
Multiple Watts with Number of Hours Used and then by 30 for monthly consumption.
Convert Total Watts into Kilowatt Hours (kWh) using this formula Watts/1000.
Multiply Total kWh to the Price per Unit charged by Electricity Provider
Let’s assume that you are buying a fridge or have a fridge at home. You want to know how much electricity cost for using it. From looking at the label on the Fridge, you see that it consumes 500 watts. A fridge is used for 24 hours. You Electricity Provider charges you €0.15/ kWh.
1-500 watts X 24 hours = 12,000 Watt/ Hours /Day
2-12,000 x 30 = 360,000 Watts/ Month
3-360,000 Watts ÷ 1000 = 360 kWh/ Month
4- 360 kWh x € 0.15 = €54/ Month
5- €54 x 12 Months = €648/ Year
So Your Fridge adds €54 per month and €648 per year to your Electricity Bill.
