IMPORTANT NOTE : THE LAST THREE COLUMNS INDICATE THE COST OF ELECTRICITY THAT WILL BE CONSUMED IN 1HOUR BY EACH OF ALL THE APPLIANCES LISTED, AT THREE DIFFERENT CUSTOMER-TARIFFS, WITH A TARIFF EACH EXPRESSED IN EACH OF THE THREE COLUMNS.         The basic unit of electricity is the KilowattHour (KWH). In simple terms, 1 kwh (=1000wh) is the amount of energy used by an electrical appliance rated 1kw (=1000 watt, e.g. a 1000watt electric heater) used for 1 hour. Another example is ten 100-watt light bulbs used for 1 hour. This means that such electrical appliance/s used for 30 minutes will consume half unit because 1hour consumption gives 1000Wh (=1KWh). Therefore If used for 2 hours, same appliance will consume double unit
