The amount of electricity you use is measured in and priced by kilowatt-hours (kWh). Each kWh of electricity is actually 1,000 watts of electricity used continuously for one hour.
The average monthly kWh usage in the following charts was developed by New York State utilities and approved by the New York State Public Service Commission. THE FIGURES ARE ONLY ESTIMATES. Your
actual usage may vary depending on the size of your family, the age and size of a particular appliance, how
often it is used, and the efficiency of the appliance.
You can calculate the approximate operating cost of any electrical appliance by checking its wattage and
using these formulas:
1. Wattage x Hours Used
= kWh
1,000
2. kWh x Cost per kWh = Operating Cost
Since the cost per kWh fluctuates from month to month, please check your most recent Central Hudson bill
or the Central Hudson web site at www.CentralHudson.com/residential/energyinfo.html for the most current pricing information.

A NOTE ABOUT THE COST OF ENERGY
Under Central Hudson’s Customer Choice Plan, you have the opportunity to choose another electric
and/or natural gas supplier; Central Hudson will continue to be your energy delivery company.
If you do not elect to choose another supplier, Central Hudson will purchase the energy on your behalf. Because Central Hudson no longer owns the power plants where electricity is produced, we cannot control the price our customers pay for the electricity to the extent we did in the past. We purchase
electricity and natural gas on your behalf, and pass our supply cost along to you, without any markup
or profit. While our delivery costs will remain stable, prices for the supply of electricity and natural gas
will fluctuate, based on actual supply and demand.
Television type, wattage and usage varies widely from household to household. Televisions also have what is
called a “standby load.” That is the electricity that is used even when the television is not turned on. Supplied on
the next page is some information pertaining to how much a television uses hourly and its standby usage based
on the average wattage given.

Natural gas is measured by both volume (hundred cubic feet, abbreviated CCF) and by heat content
(British Thermal Units [BTU] per CCF). We bill you in CCF, a measurement of the volume of the
natural gas that you receive.
To calculate the approximate operating costs of any natural gas appliance you must
check its BTU rating and use these formulas:
1. __________
BTU
= CCF
100,000
2. CCF x Number of Hours Used x Cost per CCF = Operating Cost
Since the cost per CCF fluctuates from month to month, please check the Central Hudson web site at
www.CentralHudson.com for the most current pricing information.
