Energy Use per Hour {Infographic}

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).

    I was shocked to see how much energy I was using everyday with just normal household chores. I decided to do some more research to see how I can cut down the energy that I use even more. A good resource for finding out more about green energy is http://www.everblue.edu if any of you are interested in pursuing green energy.
