Monthly Power consumption (kWh) | 26,880 kWh | ||

Subscribed capacity (kVA) | 140 kVA | ||

Bills charged for the month | |||

The first 10 Units | [10 Units x 140kVA] x B$0.20 cents | = | B$ 280.00 |

The second 100 Units | [100 Units x 140kVA] x B$0.07cents | = | B$ 980.00 |

Remaining Units | [26,880 – (10 x 140) - (100 x 140)] x B$0.06 cents | = | B$ 688.80 |

Bill Charged
| B$280.00 + B$980.00 + B$688.80 |
= | B$1,948.80 |
