There is no definite answer. It will depend on how busy the CPUs are. VMs consume specific amounts of RAM, but not a specific amount of CPU cycles.

Dell has power estimator tools -- https://www.dell.com/community/PowerEdge-Hardware-General/Total-Power-Requirement-Calculation/td-p/5159435
But you have to know how busy the CPUs will be to get an accurate answer.
If you want to know, the best answer is to measure the usage. Get a power meter like this -- https://www.amazon.com/P3-P4400-Electricity-Usage-Monitor/dp/B00009MDBU (US version, but there are EU versions also).
