It differs from region to region and country to country. The cost is dependant on the method the electricity is generated. One of the lowest production costs is hydro electrical generation. I pay 8 cents a kilowatt hour.

Energy is measured in kilowatt-hours. (the question is the same as asking: 'how far is a knot?') But a kilowatt running for 1 hour converts 1 kilowatt-hour. If running for 10 hours it is 10 kilowatt-hours. Hope that helps. Anything that uses 40 kilowatts would use 40 kilowatt-hours for each and every hour.

It's different in different areas & at different times.Additional AnswerThere is no such thing as a kilowatt per hour. You are probably thinking of a kilowatt hour (kW.h) -which is a unit of measurement for energy. As the first answer says, it varies according to which company supplies you. The formula you use is, Kilowatts x hours x price you are charged per kilowatt/hour (usually about .07 to 10 cents a kilowatt/hr). 1000 watts = 1 kW.    Your term "hydro" is another term for kilowatt hours. So to answer your question a 4800 watt heater on for an hour would consume 4.8 kilowatt/hours. To take it further if you knew what you pay for a kilowatt hour in your area, multiply it by 4.8 and you could see how much it costs you to operate the heater. An example if you pay .11 cents a kilowatt hour, the price would be .528 or 53 cents an hour. To answer this just multiply the lamp wattage by what you are charged per kilowatt hour by your utility power company. 40 watts = .04 Kw. A power of 1000 watts is one kilowatt, so in one hour the energy used is one kilowatt-hour, also known as one Unit. 100%! dont leave lights on for ever!To answer the question (!)...Multiply the power-rating of the lamp, converted to kilowatts, by the length of time it is on, converted to hours. This tells you how much energy has been wasted, in kilowatt hours. You then need to find out the cost per kilowatt hour charged by your utility. The produce about 2,300 KWH(kilowatt hour) a year. A kilowatt hour is a unit of work or energy, and the product of power in kilowatts and time in hours. So, for example, it can be the work done, at a rate of one kilowatt, over a period of one hour.
