# Calculation Electricity + explanations The average French fare has an approximate cost of \$0.17 (dollar) per KWh. It depends on your supplier and if you have a preferential rate of course. This calculation is a simple example, it is to be replicated with your data according to your hardware: 1000 (Watts) x (Times) 24 (hours) x (Times) 30 (days) = 720 000 Watts, or 720 kW. 0.17 (dollars) x (Times) 720 (KW) = \$122.4 per month at French rate at \$0.17 per kWh. Calculation made in dollar, you can do it in euros also. Take the example of someone who pays \$0.04 per kWh with 1000w: 1000 (Watts) x (Times) 24 (hours) x (Times) 30 (days) = 720 000 Watts, or 720 kW. 0.04 (dollars) x (Times) 720 (KW) = \$28.8 per month. And finally a very simple example with 25 kw instead of 1 kw compared to our first example for you to observe the difference well: 25000 (Watts) x (Times) 24 (hours) x (Times) 30 (days) = 18 million watts (18 million), or 18000 KW. 0.04 (dollars) x (Times) 18000 (KW) = \$720 per month with the person paying \$0.04 per KWh and \$3060 for the French fare. You now have an idea of why the cost of electricity is the most important in mining. Moreover remember that you must have a grounding to undermine, security is very important. Example: a washing machine without a grounding plug will cause small electric shocks if you touch it while it is in use, the power consumption of a washing machine is not so different compared to the consumption of a RIG except that the Washing machine does not turn 24/7.
