It isn't that bad but still substantial. Another reason I made this thread is because I'm thinking of upgrading to Floorstanding Paradigm Monitor or even the studios and I may have to get a separate amp ( most likely an Emotiva) for that.

Yes, that is 36 kWh per month 24x7 ;)You add a separate amp, a beefy one, and I am sure that will double at least.
