Call your local power company and see what they’re charging you per kilowatt hour.

Your monthly power bill might say what they’re charging you a month.

Don't forget to account for the wattages used by the ballast, fans, pumps, light movers, etc, and also things such as the length of the cord from outlet to ballast, or from ballast to lamp may also affect power consumption.

Example if your paying 06.Cent Per kilowatt hour (based on bulb sizes only):

A 1000 Watt bulb on 24 hours a day for 1 month will cost $43.20

18/6 Light schedule will cost $32.40

12/12 Light schedule will cost $21.60

A 600 Watt bulb on 24 hours will cost $25.92 a month

18/6 Light schedule will cost $19.44

12/12 Light schedule will cost $12.96

A 430 Watt bulb on 24 hours will cost $18.58 a month.
