Electrical Energy Cost Calculator
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 assumes averages for various appliances. The cost per KWH is found at the top, the default is the national U.S. average cost per KWH $0.1099 as of January 2011
(found at U.S. Energy information Administration), but you can input whatever rate you pay per KWH found on your energy bill.
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. If you know the EXACT information for your device or appliance, you might want to see our equipment cost calculator for commercial use, or see our appliance cost calculator for residential use. You might also find our
energy pollution calculator for additional information, and our carbon pollution calculator, interesting.
