August 2015 How much does it cost to use that appliance? I


f you knew how much money it would cost you every time you turn on a dishwasher, clothes dryer, ceiling fan or table lamp, would you use it less often? You can take some control over your energy bills by educating your- self about how much you’re spending when you choose to leave an unused computer plugged in, run the dishwasher when it’s only half full or walk out of a room without switching off the lights. Here’s a formula for estimating how much your appliances and electronics are costing you to operate: Step 1: Learn the wattage of the device. On most appliances, the wattage is stamped on the bottom or the back, or on its nameplate. Step 2: Do this simple calculation: Wattage × Hours Used Per Day ÷ 1000


The wattage on most appliances is stamped on the bottom or back as shown on this heater.


That will reveal its daily kilowatt-hour (kWh) consumption. Step 3: Multiply the daily kWh consumption by the number of days you use the appliance during the year. The answer is the appliance’s annual con- sumption. (13878002) Step 4: Learn what your electric utility’s rate per kWh consumed is.


NWEC’s farm and residential rate averages 10 cents per kWh. This does not include the base charge, fuel adjustment or consumer cost adjustment. Step 5: Multiply the annual consumption in kWh per year that you calcu- lated above by NWEC’s rate per kWh consumed. That will reveal the annual cost to run the appliance. Here’s an example. Your desktop computer and monitor would cost $39.40 a year to operate if you use them four hours a day. (120 Watts + 150 Watts) × 4 hours/day × 365 days/year] ÷ 1000 = 394 kWh 394 kWh × 10 cents per kWh = $39.40/year Can’t find the wattage? The chart on page three shows some common ones, as calculated by the Department of Energy.
