Hydro cost question

Anyone in Ontario know of a website, that gives you estimates of, say a 100W bulb cost per month, running 10-12 hours? Or does anyone know off hand? Trying to figure out my hydro costs, for my herps. no smart meter here.

Thanks to anyone that has some useful info for me.

here is a site i found that has a bunch of appliances.. sorry, no lightbulbs yet..

http://www.city.ames.ia.us/ElectricW...appliances.htm

cost listed is in american $$$ thou

also, for regular household lighting, it is worth it to switch to the energy efficient ones..

http://people.westminstercollege.edu...nts/Lights.htm looks like it might have info.. but math isn't my strong point.

There are 1000 kw in a kwh, so running a 100W bulb for 10 hours would equal 1kwh. Which is priced on your hydro bill.

does that help?



Basically if you use a 100W bulb, for 10hrs a day, for 30 days, that would equal 30 kWh.

my hydro bill is rated at 3 dif. rates. Starting around 43 cents per kWh to 55 cents per kWh. So for me, 100W bulb on 10hrs day, for 30 days equals

1 ( kwh per day ) X 30 ( days ) x 0.43 ( cents, cost per kwh )
total = 12.90 in hydro for 30 days

OR at 55cents = 16.50 in hydro for 30 days.

Holy crap, 43 cents per kWh??!! Its 6.4 cents per kWh out here! That's hella expensive! It must be electricity from coal or nuclear to be that much.

BC is cheaper in terms of energy, b/c there is TONS of hydroelectrical dams happening. Not to mentional geothermal vents.

Some of us in bald SK gotta pay through the nose.

Are you sure it's 43 cents per kWh? I checked my bill, it's $0.043 or 4.3 cents per kWh. Don't forget to tack on the transmissions network charge, trans connection charge, wholesale market services, distribution charge, monthly customer charge and standard supply admin fee. For me it works out to $0.0736 per kWh (plus GST ) though the standard supply admin fee isn't included in that.
If I were to run that 100 Watt light, it would be 0.0736 x 10 hours = $0.073 per day, $2.21 for 30 days.

Here's the price as stated by Hydro-One, the electricity provider in Ontario. I would be highly PISSED off if you've been getting charged 43 cents per 1000W!!! Holy smokes!
