Default 150 Watt Outdoor Flood Light Bulb

Hi,
Does anyone know how much will it cost you per month to run this "150 Watt Outdoor Flood Light Bulb" non-stop? Is there any chart with different wattage and their consumptions? Also what is brighter and more powerful, halogen or flood light?
Thanks.

150W x (your rate in kWh) x 24 x number of days in month = cost

Less than a dollar a month?

150W x 24hours x 31 days = 111.6kWh/mo

At the national average of $0.10/kWh, you will be paying $11/mo.

So did you decide to run it 24/7 because its only going to cost you "less than 1$/mo"?
