How much does it cost to run my pumps?

Understanding the running costs of your pumps is essential, especially if you’re trying to reduce your energy consumption and overheads. All pumps require differing amounts of power to function, so without knowing the specifics of your pump system, it’s difficult to provide an accurate answer to how much they cost to run.

*Please note, the above is indicative as pumps will not usually run at full power around the clock all year round.

How can we reduce this?

If you’re reading this, it’s likely that your pumps are contributing to your electricity consumption and having an effect on your bills. If that’s the case, then it’s also fundamental to consider the impact that your pumps are having on the planet.

It may be simple, but it’s worth noting that ‘the larger the pump the more it will cost to run’. That’s why it’s essential to ensure that all pumps are specified for the purpose. This table demonstrates that 20no. 5.5kw pumps and 30no. 1.1kw pumps running at 14p per kilowatt, result in a £176,725.20 spend to run your pumps for one year.
