## What is power rating of an appliances?

Every electrical appliance has a power rating which tells you how much electricity it needs to work. This is usually given in watts (W) or kilowatts (kW) (1000W = 1kW). Of course, the amount of electricity it uses depends on how long it’s on for, and this is measured in kilowatt-hours (kWh).

### How do you find the power rating of an appliance?

Power ratings of most appliances are usually listed on the appliance itself or the manual. For a final calculation of your watt-hour usage, we recommend that you look at each appliance to be powered to find its rated power.
