What’s the difference in kWh (use) and kW (demand)?

October 1, 2017

To understand what’s driving your energy use, there are a couple of key terms every restaurant owner needs to understand. The difference between kilowatts (kW) and kilowatt-hours (kWh) is one of the essentials, but I’ve found that many of the owners that I speak with aren’t able to determine the difference between them.


Below is a picture of how this may look on your electric bill:




Here's why the difference between kW and kWh is essential to managing your energy.

We tend to think we’re billed exclusively for how many kWh we use, but more than 30% of an electricity bill for commercial energy users is dictated by your kW (demand) usage. Knowing the difference between your kW and kWh can help you save significantly on your next bill.
