Reporting APC PDU power usage

I have a client looking to monitor their colo rack power usage and have a monthly report showing consumed power.
Ultimately, they want to be sure they are being billed fairly by their hosting data center for the amount of power consumed.

the basic Idea is to use the snmp info from the PDU to aggregate the monthly power consumed.
Logic monitor has APC PDU data sources that include a "live" view of the amps per phase on the 3 phase PDU

Ideally, we want to avoid using APC datacenter expert or the like to manage the data.
Has anyone worked on converting the amps to kilowatts and reporting on that directly in logic monitor?
