Understanding Kilowatt Hours

Let’s get right into some energy and electrical literacy!

When it comes to understanding energy and all the amazing things it can do for us, there’s a risk we’ll completely miss out on the awesome results if we can’t understand the language. For example:

“Simply by installing Legend Power’s Harmonizer, Kingspan has reduced their energy usage by 3%, saving 64,000 kWh and 11 tons of GHG emission per year.”

Now those numbers sound amazing but what do they really mean? What really is 64,000 kWh and 11 tons of GHG emissions? They are fantastic, large numbers (and excellent results of the Harmonizer) but it’s even more awesome when we understand what they are large numbers of. You’ve probably seen that kWh on your energy bill before. Today we’re taking a look at the kilowatt hour.

Check out this quick video explanation that provides insight into a kilowatt hour and what it can do for us:
