In power backup mode, how much units a family consumes in our gated community ?

The same gentleman asked this question also in same private communication. Answer is split for convenience of the reader and for easier understanding of knowledge seeking young generation ....

According to www.achahome.com website, as per their page, it is 7.23 units per day.
It is as per below chart.
Electricity consumption Calculation
Appliance Watts No. Hours Watt x Hours Units /day
CFL Bulbs 15 8 4 480 0.48
Cieling Fans 100 3 8 2400 2.4
TV 32 inch LED 40 1 4 160 0.16
Fridge 250L 4★ 501 U/year* 60 1 24 1440 1.44
Micro wave 700 1 0.5 350 0.35
induction cooker 1200 1 1 1200 1.2
Air Fryer 1500 1 0.5 750 0.75
Others 150 1 3 450 0.45
Total 7.23

Taking answer to previous question about cost of power generation, at a DG set power production cost of Rs.11.50 per unit, for the standard family consuming above 7.23 units per day, cost per day is Rs.83.15
For 3 days of power cut (It was actually less in our building) the association spent approximately Rs.250/- per flat altogether. But it is forcing a collection of Rs.1 per sft.
