Off Grid Home Forums Technical Discussion Managing Electricity Use Re: Managing Electricity Use


This should maybe belong to another topic, but I am also curious about finding out what appliances etc use up the most electricity? I know that the fridge and boiler use a lot, but what about computers, computer screens, laptops, TV’s, etc.

And there is also the question of boiling water in a pan for a cup of tea, or using an electric kettle? With a pan I have learned almost exactly how much water to put in for a cup, and always turn it off before it starts to boil. With a kettle however, there is a minimum amount of water that has to be put in to cover the heating system, which is more than what is needed for a cup?

It would be very interesting to hear if anybody has some information on this topic, or let me know where to find more information, such as a list of how much energy household appliances use.
