In this laboratory activity students will investigate the amount of electricity that they use in their home, design a plan to reduce their consumption, and investigate the links between electricity use and its effects on the environment. Students will conduct an energy audit/survey of electrical appliances in their home in terms of the energy used and the costs involved, interpret a monthly electric bill, increase their understanding of energy units such as watts, volts, amps, and kilowatt-hours, and design and implement a specific strategy or conservation plan that will lead not only to a reduction in the amount of electricity that they use, but also to a lower monthly cost. This activity has an accompanying teacher site with hints and more information.
