Monthly Hot Water Charges

Did you know water heating with NB Power can be an inexpensive way to enjoy hot water in your home?

Heating a full 184 litre (40g) tank costs $1.33 and $2.01 for a 279 litre (60g) tank. That means that for every 10 litres of hot water you use will only cost you 7 cents.

Here’s a breakdown of how hot water is used in an average month.

Usage Approximate hot water usage Monthly cost*
Shower 8 minutes using 2.5g flow rate** 45 litres $9.45 / person
Dishwasher 1 load 23 litres $4.83
Hot Water Leaks 1 drip/second can use over 20 litres a day *** 20 litres $4.30

 

To help lower these costs, we recommend using water-efficient showerheads, taking showers instead of baths and repairing any leaks right away.
