A kilowatt hour = 1000 watts for 1 hour.
Therefore if your system used 1000 watts in 24 hrs you would use (6.78cents) or $0.0678 x 24 = $1.627
That is $1.627 for 1000 watts for 24 hours.
Your computer does not use 1000 watts.

Mine (see My system specs), uses (including monitor) about 300 watts at idle and 560 watts during load.
That means, at my cost per kilowatt hour ($.0948), mine would cost $1.27 under load for 24 hours of running
or $0.68 at idle for 24 hours of running. It is actually less since my monitor goes to sleep and the computer is only running with a load a small part of the time.

My computer runs on sacrificial virgins.
