It is hard to give a KW per hour avg. on a SaniDry (http://www.basementsystems.com/dehumidifier/). It is a system that is on demand for the relative humidity (http://www.basementsystems.com/learning_center/dehumidification/humidity.php) in the area. I can give you statistics on cost per gallon of water removed from the air, A standard 35 pint unit is about 11 cents per gallon and the SaniDry is 3.1 cents per gallon.

I can also give you this:

(watts) x (hours used per day) x (days used per year) divided by (1000) = kWh consumption.

Cost per kWh used (usage) x kWh consumption = annual cost.

Please note:
Each Area / State has a different charge for kWh usage. You would need to get that information for your area. To get watts: Watts = Amps x Volts
