Depends on size and population of town better answerable with a coplete Census of town in question
The maximum would be 200 x 240 = 48 kilowatts assuming you had normal 3 wire service. However, your home would never use that much. Average would probably be about 3 or 4 ki…lowatts, depending on time of day and your heating and air-conditioning systems. Your electric utility bill probably tells you how many kilowatt-hours you used in a month. Just divide this by 730 which is the number of hours in the average month, and that will give your average load in kilowatts for that month.
About 10 per regular wash.
it takes 3 gallons to run a dishwasher.
Depending on the size of the TV, somewhere between 0.3 and 0.7 KW. The nameplate of the TV usually lists the watts, divide watts by 1000 to get KW.
Check the nameplate or in themanual for the rating of the dishwasher. If you don't have the dishwasher manual, "Google" the make and model to get the specs. Usually appliance …feeds are on separate circuits out of the house panel. Mine is fed with a single pole 15 amp breaker. Unless it is a very big machine (industrial) it will be under 12 amps.
\nLook at the power supply or back of any semi-sophisticated electronics device you want to know the kilowatt usage of. It should have one number on it with an "A" next to th…e number. This is the amperage. Multiply that by 120 (Alternating Current) and you have the wattage. Divide by 1000. After that, as you may be able to figure yourself already, if you use that device for one hour then you will be said to be using it for that many kilowatts.\n. \nExample:\n. \nI have a 1.5A laptop. (it may even say 1,5A)\nMultiply by 120. 180 watts\nDivide by 1000. 0.18 kilowatts\n. \nIf I use my laptop for one hour, it will consume at the most 0.18 kilowatts. It may be less because you do not use 100% of your CPU every second, and there may be power-saving features such as auto-off screen, modem or network card working. The best energy saving feature you can use is the one that turns off the screen, but keep in mind if you use anything like DSL/Cable that device usually has its own power supply and it can be more than a laptop.\n. \nAlso, if you want to do the math to find the cost of running your laptop for one straight month, multiply the kilowatts by 730.5 and then by your local power company's charge for each kilowatt-hour. Mine charges $0.1412, so the laptop would cost $18.56 if it was used at full capacity for approximately 30 days, and just multiplying again by 12 months gives me a yearly maximum of $222.80.\n. \nYou could probably reach that number if you turned off all power-saving features, ran a program that can hammer the processor like a math program using WiFi and/or networking simultaneously. If you have free time to burn, I recommend going to SETI@home and have your computer join the search for possible life beyond our world.
240 volts X 100 Amps = 24,000 watts, which is 24 Kilowatts.
1000 Watts is one kilowatt - no matter how long you run it. Watt and kilowatt are units of power, not of energy.
The units are not interchangeable: a kilowatt is a unit of power , and a kilowatt-hour (one kilowatt applied for one hour) is a unit of energy . Example: A 100 watt bul…b is, at any given time, using 0.1 kilowatts of energy. Using a 100 watt light bulb for one hour consumes 0.1 kilowatt-hours of electricity. Energy is only used by applying power for a finite period of time.
A small one, 5 kW, a large one, 15 kW.
That depends on how many light bulbs are in the bathroom and how much power each of them use.
34.64 gallons of water
In the UK a 60-amp supply can give nearly 15 kW.
Answer for UK, Europe and countries running a 50 Hz supply service. A typical home might use an average power of 1-2 kW through the year. But homes sometimes draw more than …that and the load can go up to 10-15 kW for one home.
A ton of refrigeration is equal to the cooling power of one shortton (2000 pounds or 907 kilograms) of ice melting in a 24-hourperiod. The value is defined as 12,000 BTU per h…our, or 3517 watts. A 2-ton ac represents 7034 watts of power, but a practical unitwould require more electrical power than that, maybe 10 kW to besafe.
