  1. Quick question. Does an extra $100 on my electric bill sound right for a 400 watt MH setup?
  2. Sounds a bit steep, even if you are 24/7 with it. But without knowing what you pay per kwh its impossible to say.

  3. Definitely sounds high. What else is involved electrically with your setup?

    To work it backwards, if you ran a 400w 24/7 for 30 days that would consume 288 kilowatt hours. For that to cost $100 your rate would have to be 34.7¢ per kilowatt hour, very high.
  4. Not even 24/7 lights are 8-16 only other thing extra is 2 small fans, could that mean a bad ballist?
  5. How do you know the entire $100 boost in your power bill is due to your grow op? August was a scorcher in most parts of the country, maybe your air conditioner was working overtime?
