## Top best answers to the question «1000 watt hps uses how much electricity»

#### Average where I am is 6 cents for the next couple months, 7 cents for the summer. 1000 watt lamp would cost this much if you pay 7 cents a KWH. ... How much does it cost to run a 1000 Watt HPS?

ApplianceTypical Consumption Per HourCost Per Hour (at 10 cents per kilowatt-hour)
Hair dryer1,200 watts12 cents
Electric range burner1,000 watts10 cents

Also question is, how many amps does a 1000 Watt HPS light use? 9 amps . Subsequently, question ...

A 1000w HPS or Metal Halide light takes 9 amps at 120 volts so you can only run one on a wall outlet circuit. A standard dryer outlet is 220 volts and 30 amps so you can power up to six 1000 watt lights on that circuit.

To determine how much electricity does a 1000 Watt HPS bulb use, you need to do some simple math. Each hour you run a 1000 W HPS bulb equals one kilowatt hour. Factor how many hours per day you’ll use the bulbs (typically 12 hours in a standard flowering cycle). A typical HPS ballast uses slightly more energy than the bulb itself, so you’ll use 1.1 kilowatt hours x 12 hours = 13.2.

This does not account for ballast or equipment start-ups. So basically, your 1000w HPS will draw a little over 9 Amps of the 12 you should be using. That leaves about 360 watts for you to play with. FYI: HPS ballast convert the voltage down to 110 volts. 1000/110 = 9.09 Amps constant

1000 watt lamp would cost this much if you pay 7 cents a KWH. 24/0 = 24kwh/day*30 days = 720kwh * \$.07 = \$50.4 dollars a month. 18/6 = 18kwh/day*30 days = 540kwh * \$.07 = \$37.8 dollars a month. 12/12 = 12kwh/day*30days = 360kwh * \$.07 = \$25.2 dollars a month.

1 kilowatt-hour is 1000 watt-hours and 60 watt bulb consume during 1 hour 60 watt-hours of electricity, so then it costs 0.6 cent =>60/1000=0,06*price of 1 kilowatt-hour = 0.6 cent How much ...
