## How to Calculate Daily Power Consumption in kWh

Calculating your daily power consumption in kWh (kilowatt-hours) is crucial for keeping track of your energy usage and managing your utility bills efficiently. Understanding your household's power consumption patterns can also help you identify areas where you can conserve energy and reduce your carbon footprint.

Here's a step-by-step guide on how to calculate your daily power consumption:

### Step 1: Gather the Required Information

To begin, you'll need the following information:

• Electricity meter reading: Note down the starting and ending readings of your electricity meter for the day.
• Time period: Determine the time span between the starting and ending readings in hours.

### Step 2: Calculate the Total Energy Consumed

Find the difference between the starting and ending readings on your electricity meter. This difference represents the total energy consumed during the period.

### Step 3: Calculate the Daily Power Consumption

To calculate the daily power consumption, divide the total energy consumed by the time span in hours.

Daily Power Consumption (kWh) = Total Energy Consumed / Time Span (in hours)

### Example Calculation

Let's assume the starting reading on your electricity meter is 1000 kWh, and the ending reading after 24 hours is 1020 kWh.

Total Energy Consumed = 1020 kWh - 1000 kWh = 20 kWh

Daily Power Consumption = 20 kWh / 24 hours = 0.83 kWh
