How to Compute your VECO Bill

veco-bill-calculator

Unless there’s a significant change in your total amount due, you probably don’t pay too much attention to the other parts of your VECO bill. But once you do start to get a hard look at your actual consumption and the fees, terms like Generation Charge, Transmission Charge, and Systems Loss Charge may have you wondering what exactly what you’re paying for. (Read: How to Read Your Veco Bill)

Before you start researching what all of these terms mean, first we have to focus on what’s on your meter. Most of what you’re paying for comes from exactly this. The different dials may seem overwhelming but you can actually read your VECO meter in three easy steps. Be sure to read from right to left, and read our guide to reading your VECO meter for more information.

 

How to compute your VECO consumption

Now that you know how to read your meter, you’re probably wondering where that consumption comes from. In a nutshell, it comes from all of your appliances and electronics at home. To get take a deeper look, your going to need to figure out the wattage of each appliance and how many hours per day or month you use each. Add them all up and multiply by 30 days. The computation is typically this:

WATTAGE x # of hours per day x 30 days per month/1,000  = Appliances kWhr Consumption

Multiply this by the cost per kWh, and you have your cost of consumption for the month.

Of course, hardly anyone wants to do this manually. And while an online VECO Bill Calculator would be nice, they don’t quite have that as a service on their website yet. However, they have provided a table of estimated kilowatt use for your most common appliances:
