There is a global drive to make sustainable energy production a top priority, with South Africa among the countries investing in “clean” technologies like solar power.

Tesla and its competitors are helping to push this drive by developing battery systems which can be linked to household solar installations – removing the need to connect to a national power grid.

With Eskom sometimes unable to deliver a stable electricity supply, moving “off-the-grid” is an attractive option for many South Africans.

Before you consider it, though, you need to know how much energy your household consumes – and which devices use the most electricity.

The infographic below shows how much power, in kWh, typical household appliances use.
