Now we're cookin' with... er... magnetism?

They only draw as much power is goes into the metal, so they are by far the most efficient user of energy.  That being said, you can calculate your power usage yourself based on your local power rates.  For the sake of argument here, let's assume you forge for an hour, and half that time is heating the metal (so 30 minutes of power on time).  Let's also assume it is always pulling max power (it won't), and that your power rate is $0.10/kWh.  

Therefore:  15kW*0.5Hr*$0.10/kWh = $0.75 per hour of forging.  

Of course your power company mage charge something else, and maybe your heating vs hammering vs planning times are different.  But now you have the equation, so you can plug in your own numbers.

Heh, I work in an engineering R&D firm.  My software guys like to refer to it as "Double-E Wizzard Juice"

(For the non-nerds out there, double-e = EE = Electrical Engineer)
