How The Calculator Works

Input

State: CA($0.18/kWH)*
Room Type: Bathroom(10.8 hours wasted a day)**
Bulb Type: Linear Fluorescent(38 Watts)***
Number of Bulbs: 1
Operating Days per Year: 365 days

Example Calculation

Energy Waste =0.038 kw * 10.8 hrs * 1 * 365 days * 0.1805 $/Kwh
Energy Waste = $27.04

You are wasting $27.04 from the bathroom a year

How To Use The Calculator


  • Step 1 - Select your state
  • Step 2 - Pick your room type, and enter the amount of rooms and hours wasted
  • Step 3 - Choose the type and number of bulbs you are using
  • Step 4 - Drag the slider according to your number of operating days per year

  • 280 Operating Day/Year
