Electric Appliance Calculator – Help and Information

VCR (in use)

“VCR (in use)” is the amount of time that you are using a Video Cassette Recorder. For example, if you use a VCR for 3 hours every day, please enter “3” in the first field and select “hours/day” in the second field. Your cost per month and cost per year will be automatically calculated.

VCRs continue to use energy when they are not “in use” (to power the clock). To calculate this cost, please use the “VCR (stand-by)” section.
