What would you pay if you converted to solar thermal energy at a rate of 12 cents per kilowatt-hour?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The monthly electricity bill using solar thermal energy is to be determined.

Concept Introduction:

When the cost of one unit of energy and the monthly cost are known, then the energy spent per month can be calculated by dividing the monthly cost by the cost of one unit of energy.

When the energy spent per month and the cost of one unit of energy are known, then the monthly cost can be calculated by multiplying the energy spent by the cost of one unit of energy.

### Explanation of Solution

Convert $195.00 to kilowatt-hour by using the conversion factor 1 kilowatt-hour$0.15 as follows:

Electrical energy used per month =($195.00×1 kilowatt-hour$0.15)=1300 kilowatt-hour

The relation between cent and dollar is given as::

1 cent = $0.01 Now, use the above relation to convert 12 cents to dollars as follows: 12 cent =(12 cent×$0
