### How does the power consumption work?

To calculate the **consumption**, kilowatt-hours (kWh) are used. It is therefore sufficient to multiply the power by the number of hours of use, then by the number of days. The result obtained being in Wh, it is divided by 1000 to obtain kWh.

### What are the intermediate consumptions in an income statement?

The **intermediate consumption** include products and services used in the production process will either be transformed or completely destroyed. For example, a seamstress will need fabric, threads, buttons, but also a sewing machine, and electricity to create her products.

### How to calculate the electricity consumption of an electric meter?

Complementary, the kilovolt-ampere (kVA) measures the apparent or active electrical power of an installation, of an EDF meter. Number of hours per day of operation: To calculate the electricity consumption of an appliance, estimate the number of hours that it is switched on or in the “ON” position each day.

### What is the price of electricity consumption?

1 + 172, + 4,000 + 52.5 + 4, = 4,899.5 kWh at 0.16832 euros per kWh (3) at the base rate, i.e. 824.68 euros excluding subscription. Knowing the consumption of your electrical appliances is the best way to adopt eco-gestures that will allow you to control it.

### How to calculate the power consumption of a TV?

Example: a 100 cm and 100 watt television is used every day for 3 hours. To calculate the electrical consumption of this device, the formula is as follows: 3h x 3 W / 1000 = or 109.5 kWh per year.

### How to calculate the electricity consumption of your home?

Indeed, all electrical appliances consume a specific amount of energy (watts) allowing you to perform a calculation of the electricity consumption of your home. The number of watts (W) consumed by an electrical device will depend on a plethora of criteria.
