EXAMPLE)
The following electricity price?
The use of electricity monthly average of 300kWh (approximately ₩ 37,380).
Use to add about five hours a day during the summer air conditioning.

The latest of the latest 16 pyeongdae 2kW air conditioning power consumption.
With each day, 5 hours a month (30 days), the consumption power 2 (kW) * 5 (h) * is a 30 = 300kW / h.
 Air-conditioning power consumption, only 300kwh, adding them to existing usage count is writing a month 600kwh.

Electricity is calculated every time exceeds every progressive 100kwh according to the progressive application.
Only about the first 100kWh low rates only adhere to the basic rate of 6070 won, the fees for 100 ~ 200kwh is ₩ 12,590, the fee is ₩ 18,790 for the next 200 ~ 300kwh.
 Rates of 300 ~ 400kwh is ₩ 28,060, 400 ~ 500kWh period is followed by a ₩ 41,770.
 About the period in excess of 709.5 won per 500kwh gotta be charged 1kwh become ₩ 70,950.

Therefore 100kWh * 60.7 = 6070 W,
100kWh * 125.9 = 12590 won,
100kWh * 187.9 = 18790 won,
100kWh * 280.6 = 28060 won,
100kWh * 417.7 = 41770 won,
100kWh * 709.5 = 70950 won

Using electricity is 600kwh 178,230won the sum of all the above (excluding VAT).
Using did was double the electricity than usual electricity consumption by air conditioning is 4.7 times more than that would be expensive.
