Pond Pumps and Electricity Usage for Oklahoma Ponds and Water Gardens
Ever wonder about your pond pumps electricity usage? Here is a chart to help you calculate and see how much electricity your pump is using. Here in the Oklahoma City Metro area, electricity costs between 8 to 11 cents a kilowatt hour (kwh). The national average cost of a kwh is about 10 cents. We have used 10 cents for this chart. Not all pumps are on here, just some of the most common ones we see.
How is this calculated?
We calculate this by using the watts the pump uses, found on the box it came in or in the instructions. The watts x 24 hours (how many hours the pump should be on each day) give us the wattage per day used.
The watts used per day divided by 1000 = kilowatt hours per day (kwh).
The kWh per day x 30 days will give us about how many kwhs it is using for a month.
The kWh per month x 10 cents = cost per month.
