    My system runs me about $100 extra a month during veg, and $70-$80 during flower. 600w light, running 1 air pump, a box fan, small personal fan to blow underneath plant, and a 60watt inline fan to cool my light. Fans and air pump runs 24/7, the light has its obvious hours.

    Mine was pretty solid 250 a month...

    3000w in flower (12hr), 2 8bulb t5 for veg (18hr), 2 air bubbler (24hr), blue lab guardian(24hr), 3 small fans(18hr), 2 6" inline fans(18hr), 1 12site ebb n flow with pumps ect. (4 times a day), industrial size ac (12hr on an off)

    I think thats about mine BUT i also run a garage of equipment like lift and welder every so often.

    Thanks for the info. That right in line with what im expecting. Im planning on running a 2000 watt room, with 6in inline fan and small ac unit, I figured it would run me about $150 a month extra...

    You can estimate this by adding up exactly how many watts your room will use and time it by the amount of time it will be on. Assume 24 hours with air and water pumps, and fans, flowering lights for 12 hours x 30 days, veg for 18 and etc. there are plenty of calculators online.

    any self respecting leo out there know's your a prime target...since you already told them who you are with your "the cops choked me post" and the fact that anyone with 3000w too flower is going to be way over. like i said before find a new hobby before it's to late, your to stupid.

    Dude are you ok??? 1996 wouldnt make me old enough for a card. Hell, you couldve guessed 1991 from my sn but that would also be false... you going to every post an just running your mouth without posting anything to prove you arnt the 15yr old with nothing better to do.

    Also, i harvested 5 zips per plant on my first time ever growing weed. Plants were under 3ft tall and there was 5 different strands. Thc came back at 21.6% / cbn was 4% ... hate all you want but im doing fine. As far as myself or im sure anyone else is concerned you havent grown a single plant. Put up or shut up...

    30yrgrow is very rude and disrespectful person. Please reconsider your goals in life and set your priorities straight, because no person in their right mind would troll like you.
