Computers I own:
|Monitors & Other Accessories||225W|
Let’s say that, on average, each machine is using a 1⁄4 of the total power it can draw. This brings us to an actual total power usage of 529W.
Average cost of electricity in Texas: About $0.12 per KWh
Multiply the two, we get:
That’s $1.512 per day. Or $551.88 per year.
And that’s not counting the cost the goes to outfitting new equipment - So far this year, I’ve probably spent… Well, let’s not go there.
I could probably start a web-hosting gig. I could have a little radio button that says: Do you want WordPress? Or do you want Joomla? Or do you just want a blank server?
