Most domestic appliances will quote their power consumption in kilowatts and many electric utility companies use the kilowatt hour as a billing unit. The kilowatt-hour (symbolized kWh) is a unit of energy equivalent to one kilowatt (1 kW) of power expended for one hour (1 h) of time. Here is an example: If your air conditioner consumes 3 kW per hour, and it operates 18 hours during a hot summer day, then your air conditioner used 54 kWh (3 kWh X 18 h) that day. If your rate is 17 cents per kWh, then your cost of operating your air conditioner was $9.18 (54 kWh X $0.17 per kWh) for the day.
Here are some examples what you can do with 1 kWh ( results may vary):
Use an electric shaver 1200 times
Dry your hair 15 times
4 evenings of watching TV
Listening to 15 CDââ?¬â?¢s in a row
Use a (small) refrigerator for 24 hours
Heat 20 microwave meals
Drill 250 holes
4 evenings of light with 60 W incandescent light
20 evenings of light with 11 W compact fluorescent light

If availability to electricity is necessary to survival for someone in your household, CPL Retail Energy needs to know.
Here is what you'll need to do:
- Download the Critical Care Form. It is available here in English and Spanish.
- Bring this to your physician. He/she will fill it out for you and fax it to your TDSP (Transmission and Distribution Service Provider, also known as your utility company). The TDSP fax numbers are on top of Page 1 of the Critical Care Form.
Important: your physician should fax the form to your TDSP, NOT CPL Retail Energy. Your TDSP maintains that list and verifies your Critical Care status, and then will contact CPL Retail Energy on your behalf so that we can note the status on your account.
If you need more information on how to get your service address place on the Critical Care list maintained by the TDSP for your residential area, our Customer Care representatives can be reached at 1-866-322-5563 and are available to assist you Monday – Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. CST....
