Also, will one 600w light work for two plants?

Not much. Even my 1000 watter only raised it about 20 bucks. And yeah if you only did 2 plants that's kind of a waste of a light. Id do at least 4.

You take Price per kilowatt hour. Let's say it's 10 cents just for reference.
First a 600W uses .6 KW hours each hour.

So take .6 (KWH) X .10 (price per KWH) X 18 (hours veg time) X 30 (days in month) = $32.40 for each month of Veg.

.6 (KWH) X .10 (price per KWH) X 12 (hours flower time) X 60 days = $43.20 (or $21.60 per month)

Price will change depending on your price per KWH and veg time though. Round about, that's what you'll be looking at.

Here is a calculator

Costs Calculator

Find out how much your electricity company is charging a kWh and you can have an accurate cost per month.

I think for a 600w you're looking at around $22-$28 per month while you're light is on 18/6 cycle and then $15-$19 a month once you switch to 12/12

My power went up about $25 or $30 running a 600w and fans on 20/4. We have cheap electric though.

600w will grow two plants very well. You could add more if you wanted, or stick with two and scrog and/or top for huge plants.
