It varies with fan design. There’s about a 15 watt difference between high and low speed on my vornado fan, measured with a kill-a-watt. 30-45 watts or so.
Edit: so say I run that fan 24/7, 45 watts, about 1 kilowatt in 30 days, about $4.80. so run it on low, about $3.45. so save 1.35 over a month.
