## FOR REFRIGERATORS & FREEZERS

Formula:
Estimated cost per hour = [Rate per kilowatt-hour x (appliance wattage/ 1000) x 14 hours ]/ 24
hours per day

Example:
For a 6 cubic feet refrigerator for a household with an average monthly bill of P2,500.00.

Cost per hour = [Rate per kilowatt-hour x (appliance wattage/ 1000) x 14 hours] / 24 hours per day
Cost per hour = [P10.50 x (100 watts /1000) x 14 hours]/ 24 hours per day
Cost per hour = [P10.50 x (.10 kilowatt) x 14 hours]/ 24 hours per day
Cost per hour = [P14.70]/ 24 hours per day
Cost per hour = P00.61
Cost per month = P00.61x number of hours used in one month

## 2. FOR AIR CONDITIONING UNITS

Formula
Cost per hour = Rate x [(appliance wattage x 0.8 x 0.8) + (appliance wattage x 0.2)] / 1000)

Example:
For a 1 horsepower (944 watts) air conditioner for a household with an average monthly bill of
P2,500.00.

Cost per hour = Rate x [(appliance wattage x 0.8 x 0.8) + (appliance wattage x 0.2)] / 1000
Cost per hour = P10.50 x [(944 watts x 0.8 x 0.8) + (944 watts x 0.2)] / 1000
Cost per hour = P10.50 x [(604.16) + (188.8)] / 1000
Cost per hour = P10.50 x [792.96] / 1000
Cost per hour = P10.50 x 0.79 kilowatt
Cost per hour = P8.30
Cost per month = P8.30 x number of hours used in one month

## 3. FOR ALL OTHER APPLIANCES

Formula:
Cost per hour = Rate x (appliance wattage / 1000)

Example:
For a 29-inch color TV set for a household with an average monthly bill of P2,500.00.

## Cost per hour = Rate x (appliance wattage / 1000)

Cost per hour = P10.50 x (145 watts / 1000)
Cost per hour = P10.50 x (.145 kilowatt)
Cost per hour = P1.52
Cost per month = P1.52 x number of hours used in one month
