Followup Activities (Required)

Item 1 is auto-marking and your response will be recorded.

  1. Complete the energy quiz
  2. Review the nameplate power rating on a few of your appliances. Or use a plug-in power meter to conduct more detailed measurements.
  3. Review the lighting intensity in a few rooms in your home:
    • Measure the floor area of the room in square metres.
    • Calculate the total wattage of lighting in the room, ie. add wattage of every globe installed the room, including portable lamps.
    • How many watts are you using per square metre? How does this compare to other rooms? Could this be reduced by more appropriate general lighting or more targeted task lighting?
    • Alternatively, use a lux meter to measure actual light levels and compare them against the Australian Standard (table available on our lux meter product page).
