A 60-W incandescent bulb left on 24 hours a day costs about $0.10 per day. Here is the calculation:
60 watts x 24 hours = 1,440 Wh/day, so 1.4 kWh/day. At the standardized average rate of $0.0714, we therefore get 1.4 kWh x $0.0714 = $0.10 per day.
By the end a year, you would therefore spend over $37.50 for a bulb that is always on.
