## How do you calculate demand load?

**Using Load Factor to Determine Demand Limit**

- 3000 kWh divided by 720 hours = 4.16 (demand limit if at 100% load factor)
- 4.16 divided by .60 = ~7kW.
- 20kW multiplied by 720 hours = 14,400 Total kWh (if at 100% load factor) 3000 kWh divided by 14,400 Total kWh = 21% load factor at 20kW.

## How do you calculate electrical load demand?

The load factor calculation divides your average demand by your peak demand. To calculate your load factor take the total electricity (KWh) used in the billing period and divide it by the peak demand (KW), then divide by the number of days in the billing cycle, then divide by 24 hours in a day.
