Tests are working out grand, lights off the heater is able to keep the tent warm and up to temp of 23 cel, and is turning on and off every min so I’m taking it, the heater is on for 30mins per hr in the dark. With the lights on the heater comes on every 4 mins (could somebody do the maths for me, I’m brutal) 😂. The heater I actually got the wattage draw wrong it’s actually 500w. 
so with that I have figured in the off cycle the draw of everything is on is 575w per hr ( but 500w is intermittent on for a min off for a min etc, when the lights are on the power draw is 975w. But again the heat 500w is on for 1 min off for 4 mins so I don’t know how to work it out I’m not great at the auld mathematics 😂
the unit rate .1486cent per KwH

@green-beard

If my old school math is correct

with the lights off it draws .25kw/hr

With lights on it draws .508kw/hr

@monkeydo

excellent thank you my man, so my workings it’s 0.08c an hr to run the grow during lights on and 0.04c on lights out, that’s epic man thanks so much dude, I rounded up for easiness sake lol 🤙🏻
the last grow was running in at around 1.52kwph lights off and 2kw during lights on that’s an incredible difference

If that is your new efficiency then you just paid for the whole build very fast. The one thing you didn’t include in the lights off power calculation is fans but they don’t cost as much to run as heat or light.

@monkeydo that was including the fans it’s only an 80x80 tent it’s half the size of the other one, but even at that it’s great savings and I will have a better yield then the first time round with less plants, well that’s the plan weather it works that way or not is a different story lol

@green-beard that’s what I get for trying to do math under the influence. OK my better math after reading the original post better is slightly worse but only a little. I didn’t separate the always running fans out of the mix.

lights on .575kw

lights off .325kw
