Unformatted text preview: Lighting: 10,000 W (for the hours of your workday) Cooling: 10,000 W (for the hours of your workday) Computer: 10,000 W (for the hours in use); 2000 W when ‘sleeping’ Refrigerator 500 W (continuous) Next, multiply the number of Watts by the number of use-hours to determine kWh, kilowatt-hours, for weekday and weekend days. Then multiply to find the total kWh by weekday vs. weekend/holiday. Then, apply the appropriate charges, A, B, or C, by end-use hours and generate a total for the month. Show your breakdown for each kWh total and charges in a spreadsheet format. Charge A: 00:00-07:00 0.08 cents/kWh Charge B: 07:00-12:00 0.12 cents/kWh Charge C: 13:00-16:00 0.20 cents/kWh Charge D: 16:00-19:00 0.12 cents/kWh Charge E: 19:00-24:00 0.08 cents/kWh Finally, briefly state what means or strategies could be introduced to reduce these charges....
