How do you measure use?
Watts (W) and kilowatts (kW) measure power, or the rate at which electrical work is performed.

Watt-hours (Wh) and kilowatt-hours (kWh) measure energy, or the quantity of electricity used.

Demand is measured in watts.

Consumption is measured in watt hours.

Estimate how many hours a day the device is used in a given period of time such as one month. Multiply this by kilowatts to determine kilowatt-hours (kWh).

W/1000 x hours of use = kWh
