### How much is 1 unit of electricity?

This is a simple question to ask. If you have studied upto10th class then you will know the answer to this question. If you still do not know the answer to this question, we will tell you the answer.

If the answer to this question is spoken in one simple word then 3.6 x 106 Joule of energy is called one unit but it will be a little difficult for a common person to understand. So to understand this in a simple way, we will take an example.
Suppose your villager  Mukesh took a maximum power connection of 1 KW from a power company, giving him a feed charge of Rs.20 and an Energy meter charge of Rs.3 per month to the power company. Suppose two 10 watt bulbs glow 8 hours per day in Mukesh's house and two fans of 70watt for 5 hours per day, then the electrical energy consumed by Mukesh will be calculated in the following way. If the power rate provides by the power company is Rs.3 per unit.
Total energy consumed = (number of bulbs x capacity of bulb x burning time) + (number of fans x fan capacity x fan running time)

Total energy consumed = (2 x10x8) + (2x70x5)
Total energy consumed = 160 + 700 Wh
Total energy consumed = 860 Wh

This is the amount of energy consumed by Mukesh in a day. the total energy consumed by Mukesh in 30 days is

Total energy consumed = 860 x 30 Wh
Total energy consumed = 25800 Wh

When the total amount of energy consumed in a month is divided by 1000, it is called a unit. That is, the total number of units spent by Mukesh in a month = 25800/1000 units = 25.8 units

Amount paid by Mukesh to the power company = 25.8 x 3 +20(Fixed Charge) +3 (meter charge) = Rs 100.40
