HelloCustomer welcome to Just Answer.

That depend a bit of the price of electricity where you live. In that example i will use 10 cents US per KW hour and i will suppose it work at full power.

1 HP is 746 watt.

1 Kilo watt is 1000 watt.

3/4 Hp is 3*0.746/4 = 0.56 KW.

If you run it for 1 hour it will cost 5.6 cent. If you run it for 24 hour, it will be 24 * 5.6 = 135 cents or $1.35.
