This is a very simple electricity cost calculator, it uses the time a device is switched on for, the power demand of the device in Watts (NOT kilo Watts) and and an electricity rate per unit - kWh, read more on watts and kWh here.
Sample data is provided to give you an idea of what to put in the input fields. the UK avereage electricity rate is used in the example.
Just write over these numbers with your numbers. Please note the example shows a 3000 Watt device this is equal to 3kW, this might be the power consumption of an electrical heater to give to an idea.
List of devices and their indicative power demands
The table below shows a list of devices and their indicative power demand.
It is important to note here with this table that in certain countries in the world for example the USA and Canada the voltage is low, 110v. Because of this North Americans tend not to use devices we use in Europe (for example electrical kettles), this is because their power demand exceed the safe limit of their standard wall sockets.
|Small Fan heater||1500|
|Radiator (oil Filled)||3000|
