Electricity Usage for Growing Cannabis - A Helpful Guide
Growing cannabis is a wonderful hobby for cannabis enthusiasts. Learning how the plant grows is extremely worthwhile and will give any consumer a greater understanding of cannabis in general. Electricity is one factor to take into account when growing. The electricity usage for growing cannabis will depend on several different factors, but, our table below will give a fair idea of what to expect in terms of an increase to your electric bill.
Many who have never grown cannabis may believe that their power bill will spike through the roof and this is simply not true. Depending on your kWh cost, growing cannabis can cost as little as $29 in extra electricity charges over a 5 month period.
Last year while growing cannabis, my own electric bill was, on average, $37 more expensive (per month) during the vegetative months and $25 more expensive (per month) during the flowering cycle.
A total increase of approximately $125 over the 5 month period of growth. Considering the plant produced well over $125 worth of cannabis, the investment in the extra cost of electricity is certainly worthwhile.
