It's a trick question that should take you one second to answer. Power consumption is in watts/watt hrs etc. The voltage required is constant and is either 120V/480V.
Power consumption in watts on the other hand will depend on the type of rig, how deep they are drilling (which determines horsepower/torque blah blah blah).
