When most people look at their electric bill, they just glance at the total to see how much they have to pay that month.
Some might look to see if the meter reading matches the one on their meter at home, but very few people look further than that. If this describes you, you’re missing out on an important piece of information about the way you use electricity: the number of kilowatt-hours you use each month.
Knowing what a kilowatt-hour is and what it can power can save you money. This knowledge can help you monitor electricity usage, make educated choices about saving energy, and lower your monthly electric bill. You’ll also learn the formula to convert KW to kWh.
