# OT: How to convert electricity 'units' to kilowatt hours?

• posted on September 22, 2003, 8:13 pm
My electric bill tells me the 'units' I've used but not the kilowatt hours. Is there a formula for converting units to kilowatt hours?
Thanks

I pay from 1st October 3.03p per kWh from Telcom Plus. I have just received their new rates with my latest bill. I have the land line telephone deal and all calls are now at local rate, that is local and national. 100 free minutes every weekend to any other Telecom Pus user.

The new deals are not yet on the web site. I assume they will be there after October 1st or just before.

I wouldn't have thought a telephone line would handle a kilowatt?

Very tricky to use a mathematical formula, but the regex s/units/kW\/hrs/g should do the trick. B-)

Certainly. Take the number of units shown on the bill and multiply by 5. Add 40. Divide by 10. Subtract 4 and then double the number you have left. This will now be the number of kilowatt hours.

This
But that still works out to 1 unit = 1 kWh. Nah ! You've lost me again. Can you put it in layman's terms ? :-))

Sure.
Think of a number Add it to the number of units. Multply by three. Add nine Divede by three. Subtract 2 Subtract the number you first thought of. The answer is now one more than the KW/h. :-)
