icon Consumption

Now, energy consumption. Below I have listed many appliances and their watt-hour requirements. Except for the Sunfrost refrigerator/freezer, multiply wattage of each appliance you have by the number of hours per day usage to get your daily energy needs. Microwave ovens for example won't be used for a full hour so its actual energy usage is less.
