    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

    :p

    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"? :p

    You're gonna get owned real bad at the end of the month.

    Better redo your calculations.
