    What I've seen in my neighborhood is, one: all commercial consumers (offices, hotels, banks, business premises, etc) have had their old postpaid replaced with prepaid meters and, two, all new residential consumers are getting prepaid.

    Power consumed in KWh=System rating in KW x time in hours.
    In your case, the KWh units consumed in 8 hrs will be given by 0.1 KW x 8 hrs = 0.8 KWh. The sound system is rated at its peak or maximum consumption point i.e. when the volume is highest (N.B. 0.8 is less than 1 unit).
    For your second query, the inclusion of an adapter or not does not affect the power consumption of the monitor for all practical purposes.
    Before you head for the landlady with a machete, there is another important factor you need to understand;that the amount you pay per unit as a group is much higher than what you could be paying as individuals. For instance, 10 people using 50 units individually with separate meters would pay about 2.00 Kshs per unit. However, if the 10 people used the same number of units from a common meter, the cost per unit would average about 8.00 Kshs.

    8hrs*0.1Kw=0.8Kwhr=0.8unit per day
    In one month will be 24units
    Postpaid calculation>>
    24*[5.08 Consumption per KWh+ 251cts/kwh(fuel)+ 17cts/kwh(Forex adjustment)+ 3cts/Kwh(ERC Levy)]+sh.6(REP 5% of consumption i.e. 24*5.08) + sh.19.2(16%VAT on consumption) + Fixed Charge ya sh.150= Weh tu Hamia Kwako

    They stopped compulsory replacement after they received complaints. Nowadays you apply at your own choice. Sorry landlord's choice.

    Its time you start searching for another house (as you await kupata kwako), my personal experience of maji na stima ni: once you land into a "conish" landlord/lady, the agony of confrontation is not worth. HAMA!. Search for a house with prepaid meter(s) and you'll be sorted out. Thankyou

    Kwani how much are you paying? Kulipa wewe mwenyewe ni probably more expensive. KP sucks.
