Electricity Bill for small folding farm

Sat Jul 18, 2015 9:06 pm

I need someone who is a good "bean counter" on this one:

I have 7 Folding machines and I'm trying to figure out what each one will cost me per month on my electric bill b4 buying 3 more .

I will just list the processors and gpus:

i5 2400 GTX 970 earning 230k PPD
C2d E8400 @ 3ghz stock with Dual GPU GTX 970 and GTX 960 310k ppd so far
C2D E8400 @ 3ghz GTX 960 140k ppd
C2D E7200 @ 3ghz GTX 960 140k ppd
Pentium Wolfdale Dual Core 3ghz GTX 960 140kppd
Pentium Dual Wolfdalecore 3ghz GTX 960 140k PPD
Pentium G (Sandy bridge) 2.7ghz GTX 960 140k PPD

All are running 24/7 on Folding I am in Atlanta GA 1,000 kwh .0875 seems to be my "rate" from my last bill..

$17½ or $19½ would answer your question.

Thanks for the quick response. So if I "read you rite" roughly $19 x 7 or around $135 a month to run these 7 machines. Not bad.

And people get all bent because AMD's stuff pulls another few tens of watts when at full load? :roll:

You didn't look at the links that I posted. :lol:

A 300-watt system would cost you 0.3 kW x 24 hr/day x 30.44 days/month x $0.09/kWhr = $20/month.

So flat rate billing in Georgia?

Up here in Ontario Canada it's tiered to on-peak and off-peak, then there are delivery charges, regulatory charges, and then 13% tax on top of that.

My last bill was 6##.### something kW.hrs (we have 'smart meters' they measure to 4 decimal places) and was about $140 ish total which worked out to 21.82 cents/kW.hr!!!

And it's only going up!!

Like JAE linked, get one of those meters, and plug it into a pc for a week to get a good average for kw.hr used, then the repeat for the others, then multiply it through by your utility final cost.
