all inclusive, use 10 cents for any estimates and you are good to go. one kilowatt hour will run a 1hp electric motor or 17 60 watts light bulbs for one hour. OR 1 kwh is enough to leave one light bulb on for 17 hours.

AnswerYou are not charged by the kilowatt (power) but by the kilowatt hour (energy). Check with your electricity supply company to find out how much they charge per kilowatt hour.

I pay .07 cents a kilowatt.AnswerA kilowatt measures power, which is the rate at which you use energy. You do not pay for power but, rather, for energy. For the purpose of billing consumers, energy is measured in kilowatt hours (kW.h).So, the above answer should read 0.07 cents per kilowatt hour.

Based on 7 cents a kilowatt hour, your cost would be seven one hundredth of a cent.

Pretty much, just one. Your 100 watt lightbulb uses one tenth of a kilowatt every hour. Ten light bulbs on use 1 kilowatt of power in one hour. When your water heater runs, it takes about 20 minutes to use 1 kilowatt. One kilowatt goes quick and is nothing. At around 10 cents per kilowatt, it takes a while for your power bill to add up.
