How do I convert kilowatt hours of electricity used into an estimate of my bill?

Reading the meter, I can see how much electricity I've used. How do I convert this into money spent on electricity in a given month?

Depending on where you live, electricity costs 12 to 14 cents per kilowatt hour. Multiply the hours of electricity by $0. 12 to $0. 14 to get the base electric bill. Sales tax and municipal taxes may be tacked on as well.

You need to know what your local electric company charges per killowat hour and multiply the amount of electricty you used times the cost per killowat hour. Don't forget your monthly delivery charge as well, that you company will charge you just for having service brought to your house.
