Average cost KW/h for CWL

Lighting

To find out how much your lighting costs, enter the number of bulbs you use, then choose a bulb type. (A common incandescent bulb is 60 (we have stated 60 as typical), 75 or 100 watts, and a standard fluorescent bulb is 40 (we have stated 40 as typical) or 60 watts. An outdoor spotlight or floodlight may use 150 (we have stated 150 as typical) to 500 watts. Light bulb wattage is usually printed right on the bulb. We have provided six sets of data entry fields and a wide array of lamps types for the likely event you must use different types of light bulbs. You may have to run the calculator several times for a total.

Kitchen Appliances

In order to determine how much your kitchen appliances cost for general usage, select the appliances you want to calculate for by checking the Include box, or if applicable, the drop down box value, then select the amount of time the appliance will be on. (In the case of the dishwasher and coffee pot, you will enter the number of uses instead of minutes.) In this set of calculations, an electric water heater is assumed. These results are calculates using national averages for a typical device. Some devices will obviously vary.

Personal Care

In this section, you can find out how much it really costs with an electric water heater to take a nice, relaxing, hot shower after a long day at work. You can also find out how much it costs to fix your hair (assuming you have hair...some of us are lucky enough not to have to worry...) in the mornings.

*This calculator requires the use of Javascript enabled and capable browsers. This is designed to give an idea of the costs of various daily things we do in our homes that are electrical in nature. This calculator is generic in that it is based on CWL's average for KWH (currently $0.0613 per KWH), and your entered values to determine YOUR cost for electrical power. How much does it cost to wash a load of clothes or sleep under the electric blanket? What does it cost to leave a light on all night? We have collected national average values of energy use to find out how much you are paying to operate the different devices in your home.
