GE Adora DSHS6VGBSS 25.9 Cu. Ft. Side by Side Stainless Steel Review$1,499.00
This GE Adora is a fairly large appliance, and that bulk is very much reflected in its power consumption. Using a standard rate of $0.09 per kW-h, we determined that it would cost about $67.40 to operate this appliance for a full year. This is certainly on the more expensive side of things, though if you never used the ice maker, you could see the electric bill drop slightly.
Power Use Per Cu Ft
Even though it may cost a lot to power a large fridge, that doesn't mean it's using the energy inefficiently. So with that in mind, we figure out just how much energy is been used to cool a single cubic foot of usable storage space. Unfortunately, this GE Adora is not only expensive, it's also not very good at distributing energy. Using 0.13 kW-h per cubic foot of space, it's actually one of the less efficient appliances of its type that we've seen.
