(Watts X Hours of Use) / 1000 = kWh

How much do your home appliances cost to operate?
www.masonpud3.org/howmuch
The basic measure of electricity is the kilowatt-hour (kWh).
The electric bill indicates the number of kilowatt-hours used plus a daily customer charge and applicable taxes.
The following formula gives a rough estimate of the cost of operating an appliance each month. Three things must be known
to make this estimate: Wattage of the appliance (Use the formula: Volts x Amps = Watts , or see listing or specific appliance
guide), an estimate of the hours used each month, and the cost per kWh for electricity.
The current Mason County PUD No. 3 residential rate, effective February 1, 2014 is:
0.0652 /kWh
(Watts X Hours of Use) / 1000 = kWh
kWh X 0.0652 = Monthly Operating Cost

The estimated kilowatt-hour (kWh) consumption of the electrical appliances listed in the tables on this sheet are an average,
based on normal usage of a family of four. These figures will vary considerably with the size and model of the appliance, the
special features, the condition of a home's wiring, the number of people in the household, the size of the home, the insulation
levels in the home and individual use habits. For questions and answers about home energy usage or PUD 3's Conservation
Programs, please call (360) 426-0777, or email [email protected] Mason County PUD No. 3 rate schedule
booklets are available upon request.
