My power usage doesn’t make any sense … or maybe it does.
My House events :
- Furnace turns on at 6am and back off at 8am.
- Furnace turn on at 6pm and turns off at midnight.
- Power usage jumps up at 6 am as thats when we wake up …so showers and lights
- Power usage jumps up at 6 pm as this is when we start making supper.
With all my lights and computers off during the day, day costs was $0.64 or 8.15 KWH
With all my lights off but my 3 computers and one amp left on, day costs was $1.59 or 20.10 KWH
So yeah turning off your computer is worth it in the long run.
So the difference of one day
$1.59 – $0.64 = $0.95
Every hydro bill counts for 2 months and every month equals 20 time of use days
40 x $0.95 = $38
Plus the hydro deliver charge, which is almost the same as the kwh usage charge
$38.00 x 2 = $76.00
Holy fuck, that’s 76 dollars for me to not have to boot my computer when I sit down at my desk !
