Power requirements

Can anyone tell my how much electricity a controller box takes? If I install a system for my HOA, my members want to know how much electricity the controller takes to run and maintain the timer switches.
Thanks for your help.

A single light bulb uses more power than a controller. The one best thing one can do for a sprinkler system is to have a dedicated circuit for the controller, not to be shared with anything else.
