I am living in a rented house near where I work. The electricity capacity is only 450 KVa. My question is how many watts of electricity consumption can be used maximally? Does anyone know about it? Thank

What you need to calculate that is : How many amperes ? What voltage ?

Still don't understand what you mean. Can you elaborate it by giving examples?

@yanzalong Look at your electric meter. You should see a number followed by 'A'. Tell me what is this number.

We had a Contract at the start for 500 Watts. You can extend the Contract if needs be. I can only have a couple of things on at a time otherwise the light goes off all I can tell you really.

Another thing is if you have an Electric Bill already paid it should be detailed and tell you what you are more or less consuming a day. If you can read the Meter wherever it is that should help too. I did that but we were using more vatios in the Night than during the whole of the day so I just gave up and use as little light as possible. How on earth can I use more vatios at night being asleep than during the day it is quite confusing.

@lovinangelsinstead21 Electricity contract comes in several capacities: 450 kva, 900 kva, 1300 kva and 2200 kva. I really don't understand what they mean. If my consumption is more than 450 watts, then 450 kva is not strong enough.

@yanzalong The higher you consume the more you pay it seems and I try my best to keep that down but it seems they have a way of charging you whichever, whatever.
