Home Energy Assessments

With this chart, you'll be able to see how quickly your energy bill can add up when you use appliances and lighting not manufactured with energy efficiency in mind.

For example, take a look at lighting. If you have ten lamps in your house, each with a 100W incandescent bulb, you can expect to pay about $160 to light your home each year. Energy efficient bulbs will keep those lamps lit for around $47. Plus, they last six to eight times longer.

This chart is a guide and individual household costs may vary. The appliances listed are all electric appliances. Hours in Use is based on a typical four-person household; your hours may vary. Annual kWh may vary considerably depending upon model, age, and use. Annual Cost is based upon the statewide average of 16 cents per kiloWatt hour (kWh). The sum totals provided don't include taxes, connection fees or EEC fees.
