price per month Tags: Computer Components Last response: February 11, 2004 8:58 AM in Components Share JackFrost February 8, 2004 8:39:55 PM Got a electric bill question. Anyone know how much (on average) a computer cost to run per month? More about : price month HammerBot February 9, 2004 8:26:16 AM Thats a bit difficult when not knowing the price of electricy where you live, the power consumption of your computer and how long time you keep it on. However, it quite easy to calculate yourselves: PricePrMonth [$/month]= PowerConsumption [W] * OnHrsPrDay [hrs/day] * 30 [day/month] * 0.001 [kW/W] * PricePrkWhr [$/kWhr] E.g. 300W, PC on 24 hrs pr. day and 0.2$/kWhr: PricePrMonth = 300*24*30*0.001*0.2 = 43$ <i><b>Engineering is the fine art of making what you want from things you can get</b></i> Rob423 February 10, 2004 12:28:15 AM its nothing that big...
