Energy Calculator (Copper Valley)

Lighting

To find out how much your lighting costs, enter the number of bulbs you use, then choose a bulb type. (A common incandescent bulb is 60 (we have stated 60 as typical), 75 or 100 watts, and a standard fluorescent bulb is 40 (we have stated 40 as typical) or 60 watts. An outdoor spotlight or floodlight may use 150 (we have stated 150 as typical) to 500 watts. Light bulb wattage is usually printed right on the bulb. We have provided six sets of data entry fields and a wide array of lamps types for the likely event you must use different types of light bulbs. You may have to run the calculator several times for a total.

Kitchen Appliances

In order to determine how much your kitchen appliances cost for general usage, select the appliances you want to calculate for by checking the Include box, or if applicable, the drop down box value, then select the amount of time the appliance will be on. (In the case of the dishwasher and coffee pot, you will enter the number of uses instead of minutes.) In this set of calculations, an electric water heater is assumed. These results are calculates using national averages for a typical device. Some devices will obviously vary.
