Electricity Bill Calculation

We have to follow two steps to Calculate the Electricity Bill. At first, we need to determine the value of E or P and then figure out the cost. The formula is given below. Now consumers can calculate their bills on this method.

  • 1st formula ( Energy consumption) = E(kWh/day) = P(W) × t(h/day) / 1000(W/kW)
  • 2nd formula ( Electricity cost ) = E(kWh/day) × Cost<(per unit rate)
  • E = Kilowatt-hour (Unit).
  • P = Watts
  • t = Time
  • n = days
