How much is the price of electricity per kilowatt?

A kilowatt is an unit of power, which is the rate at which you purchase energy, in kilowatt hours. You pay for energy, not power. So, your question really should ask, "What is the price of electricity per kilowatt hour?"The answer is... it depends! It varies from supplier to supplier and where in the world you live, so you will need to check with your electricity supplier.

How much energy from the sun reaches the ground per square meter per second?

The earth receives an average of 164 watts per square meter from the sun. This is the average spread over the world including poles and tropics, night and day. The energy in units used commonly in commerce (kilowatt-hours) would be about 45 millionths of a kilowatt hour per second per square meter. More important is the calculation of how much usable energy reaches the ground where the energy could be put into use. At 40 degrees latitude (the rough middle of the US) during the 8 peak hours of the daylight, each square meter will receive about 4.8 kilowatt hours.

How many BTUs are required to produce a kilowatt of electricity?

Besides the fact joules are a measure of energy for most of the world and no longer BTUs, the question can't be answered because it makes no sense. 1 joule of energy can create 1 kilowatt for 1/1000 of a second, while 1000 joules can produce 1 kilowatt for 1 second. Joules (BTUs) are a measure of an amount of energy while watts are a measure of RATE of energy flow.

What did the Eiffel Tower do to the environment?

Eiffel Tower is one of the most celebrated landmarks in the world and represents Paris .The Eiffel Tower now generates its own power with new wind turbines. The turbines are expected to produce about 10,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity per year.

What is a unit of energy?

The smallest unit of energy usually measured is called the Erg. 1 erg is the amountof work done when a force of 1 dyne pushes through a distance of 1 centimeter.The SI standard unit of energy today is the joule. 1 joule is the amount of work donewhen a force of 1 newton pushes through a distance of 1 meter. It's the same amountof energy as 10 million ergs.A unit of energy widely recognized by people in much of the world ... because it's theunit counted on our electric bills ... is the kilowatt-hour. If you use 1,000 joules ofenergy every second and keep that up for an hour, you've used 1 kilowatt-hour of it.1 kilowatt-hour is the same amount of energy as 3,600,000 joules, or 36,000,000,000,000 ergs.its a joule

How much electricity does 1 person use in a year?

The total estimated power consumption of the world is 15.45 trillion kilowatt hours per year. There are also an estimated 6.67 billion people in the world. Which means that the average power use per person per year is 0.2643 kW. For the United States, the numbers are: 3.892 trillion kilowatt hours per year 306 million people 1.453 kW/person/year Note: All values are based on 2007 estimates.

How much much does electricity cost?

12 cents a kilowatt hour <<>> It depends on where you live in this world. One of the big considerations is where the power is generated, how far the power has to be transmitted and by what means of a prime mover is used. The cheapest power to generate is from hydro electric. This can involve dams or run of river generating systems. Where I live, hydro generation is used and I pay .08 cents a kilowatt hour for the first 1600 kilowatt hours and over that the rate jumps to 11 cents a kilowatt hour. Phone your local electrical utility supply distributor and ask them what rate you pay. It should also be stated on your monthly bill what the rate is.

What are different ways potential energy can be stored?

Storing energy in large quantities is difficult. A standard car battery can store around half a kilowatt-hour of energy. Fuel cells are being developed to store energy more efficiently (less mass/volume). A method of storing energy that is used in several places in the world is to use excess electrical energy to pump water up into a dam, and the water can then be released to drive the machines that turn the potential energy of that water back into electrical energy.

What would your world be without energy?

Mass=energy so a world without energy is a world without mass. If you don't have energy you don't have a world.

How much energy is obtained from wind turbines in one year?

The World Wind Energy Association, an industry organization reported that in 2010, wind power had the capacity to generate 430 TWh annually. This is about 2.5% of total energy generated worldwide.(430 Terawatts is 430 million million kilowatt hours: 430,000,000,000,000 kWh)Same amount as in any other unit of time. What electrical energy generators output is electrical energy. Thus, wind turbines, or rather wind turbine generators (WTG) connected to the wind turbines, provide electrical energy. They are rated by their ability to create that energy, i.e., by the amount of energy output within a period of time. This is termed "power".If the WTG ranked 1 MW (MegaWatt) cranks out energy for one hour (all the time with the same power) it outputs 1 MWh (Megawatthour).In simpler, math terms, the energy generated equals to integral of power over time period.
