Energy in an Hour {Infographic}

May 17th, 2011 by  


Ever wonder how much energy is used by your different major appliances or electronics? Or how much energy all such appliances and electronics in the U.S. use? Here’s some info on that for four big ones: TVs, computers, clothes dryers, and refrigerators.

Before checking it out, try to guess how much each of these use in an hour — see how close you come!

Of course, these are the averages. By buying energy-efficient electronics and appliances or using such things less, you can make a big difference when it comes to energy use (and the size of your electric bill).
