Re: How many kilowatts per day do you use?

This it's the second thread that you knuckleheads messed up with your pandemic issues of terms. we're very impressed with your knowledge. Now why don't you leave the rest of us alone so we could discuss actual power usage

Re: How many kilowatts per day do you use?

I consume about 3 kw a day. I feel comfortable using the measurement of kilowatts because it's good enough for the power company so it's good enough for me

The power company will bill you for the kilowatt-hours (kWh) you consume, because that is the measurement every electrical utility uses - good enough for them. Nobody "consumes" 3 kw a day. If your average power usage over a day was 3 kw, you would have consumed 72 kWh of energy that day.
