How much roughly is 1KW of power (electricity)

10 Comments

The average annual electrical energy consumption of a household in the United States is about 8,900 kilowatt-hours, equivalent to a sustained average power use of about 1 kW.

How do you mean? It's not that simple to quantify...

EDIT : FOr example...

By the definitions of the units for measuring electric potential (volt) and current (ampere), work is done at a rate of one watt when one ampere flows through a potential difference of one volt.

That's correct massmail666 or at least that is what I thought too.
Your electric price should hopefully be closer to 10p then 15p per kWh though.

Used 59 Kwh in 2 weeks I guess.

What tariff or rather what is your price per kwh?
ie My last place was around 11p per kwh so 59kwh = so £6.49 :?
