How To Calculate Your Electricity Bill? Simple Calculation.
It is very easy to calculate the electricity bill and tariff for Electrical Engineering Students but, it makes confusion for non-technical people that concern about their electric charges from the electricity service providers.
Suppose, a consumer consumes 1000 watts load per hour daily for one month. Calculate The Total Energy bill of the consumer if per unit rate is 9 (In $, £, €, INR ,Rs, DHR, Riyal etc) [Take 1 month = 30 Days].
1unit = 1kWh.
So Total kWh = 1000 Watts x 24 Hrs x 30 Days = 720000 watts/hour.
we Want to convert it into Units, Where is 1unit = 1kWh.
So total Consumed units. 720000/1000…… (k=kilo=1000).
Total Units = 720.
Cost of per unit is 9.
So total Cost or Electricity bill= 720 x 9 = 6480. (In $, £, €, INR ,Rs, DHR, Riyal etc). You have Done
A question is raised that why we multiplied it with 24 although the daily rate is given. Not that It is not Daily Rates, It’s the rate of Per Unit Where 1 unit = 1 kWh (Also Called 1 =B.T.U = Board of Trade Unit).
for instance, If you switched ON a 1000 watt bulb for 1 hour, It mean you consumed 1000 watts for an hour i.e. (1000 watts for 1 hour = 1kWh = 1 unit of Energy). So if the rate of unit is $5 , then you will pay 5 Dollars as a bill for your bulb which consumed 1kWh = 1 unit of electricity.
