That’s a good question! However, it is difficult to determine the cost of a shower since many factors may come into play, such as the water temperate or flow.
The following assumptions were made to estimate it:
-Recent showerhead with a rated design flow of 9.5 l/min (this information is usually written print on the showerhead)
-Comfort setting of 38 °C Based on these conditions, a 15-minute shower is equivalent to the consumption of 3.7 kWh in hot water and costs $0.26 +tax (average price at Rate D).

Did you know that it’s easy to reduce your electricity and water consumption by reducing your showers by one minute and installing a reduced-flow showerhead (5.7 litres per minute)? You could save up to $50 in one year.
