It is important to understand that the rates of electrical energy will differ depending on the company you obtain the services from. However, there are ways that you can determine how much your energy costs in kilowatt-hours (kwh). In order to find out how many kilowatt’s you are using in an hour you must retrieve one of your bills. One you’ve located a bill you should write down the total amount and see how many kilowatt hours you have consumed in that time. When you have both of these figures you should divide the total bill amount by the amount of kWhs you have consumed. This should give you the sum of how much a single kWh costs.

Now you know how much a kWh costs you should be able to understand how much energy certain appliances you will be using. To do this you should take an electrical appliance such as a lamp, television or computer for example and calculate how many hours a day you have it on. You should then multiply those hours by how many days you use it in a month. So, if you are using a lamp for your calculations then you should find out what the wattage of the bulb is and then multiply that by the amount of hours you use the lamp in a month. The result of this calculation should then be divided by the amount of kWhs used and then you will have how many kilowatt hours have been used in a month.

Depending on your supplier, on average it costs around 13p per 1 kwh used. Hope this helps.
