The formula used was:



  • The number of hours each day that your AeroGarden is on  (to see a chart of the Timing of the Lights and Pump click here). multiplied by
  • The wattage figure given above for your model AeroGarden (divided by 1000 to convert it to kilowatts, as used by the electric complany), multiplied by
  • 31 days a  month, multiplied by
  • The cost per kilowatt hour charged by your utility (in this case $.11 cents kw/hour)


For example, in a cubicle in one of our offices at AeroGrow we are growing Gourmet Herbs (on 17 hours a day) in an AeroGarden 6 (which uses 42 watts, or .0042 kilowatts, of power). This is on for 31 days a month, at an average utility rate of approximately $0.11 per kilowatt hour for electricity.
