### How much does Electricity Cost?

Electricity is one of the most important aspects of our daily life. There are many factors that add up to electricity cost. These factors include the usage time, consumption rate and the tariff plan chosen by the user. Every user has a different electricity consumption rate and so the total cost of electricity may vary from person to person. Here is a rough guide on how much Electricity Costs.

* **Usage Time** – How much electricity do you use every month, day or year? This is a basic question and everyone should ask this question each month. The answer to this question can be found out by getting an online bill at an electricity supplier’s website. Then you can calculate your average power consumption per month or use time by using any other tool provided on the website.

* **Consumption Rate** – What is your average bill use per hour? You can calculate this average bill use by dividing the number of kwh used in one year with the number of kwh installed in your appliances. This will give you an estimate of the electricity you pay each month.

* **Electricity Cost Per Kwh** – This is the most accurate measure of how much electricity is cost you every year. It can be compared to other estimates of the same thing such as annual renewable energy targets and energy efficiency certificates. The actual number will be higher than the estimated number since the former does not take into account the installation of new green projects and other improvements. However, it will help you a lot to have a strong commitment towards reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

* **Electricity Cost per KWh** – This is another way of calculating how much you pay for your electricity and its usage. It measures the energy consumption for your entire home or the area where you live. The highest energy consumption and lowest energy production are the two factors that will determine the price per kwh. It is based on the premise that the area has the highest population and the lowest natural gas transmission and consumption.

After you get the answers to these questions, you can easily determine how many of your appliances you can safely and fully charge at home every month. You can also get information about the minimum number of kwh allowed for each appliance. Thus, saving money on electricity and its usage becomes a lot easier.
