Electricity Bill Question

Discussion in 'Growing Marijuana Indoors' started by Ronald McDonald, Sep 10, 2009.

  1. I'm about to set-up my new grow room and am just wondering what I should expect as far as the electricity bill.

    My set up would include:
    - 3 x 1000 watt HPS lights in the flowering room
    - 3 x 400 watt HPS lights in the vegetative room


    What kind of spike am I looking at each month in the electricity bill?

    Thanks!

  2. 3000w x 12 hours/day = 36kw/day (call it 40)
    1200w x 24 hours/day = 28.8kw/day (call it 30)
    40+30 = 70 kw/day * 30 days = 2100kw
    2100 * .12 = $250 a month assuming your electricity is roughly $.12/kwh

    GL!
