POWER HUNGRY Infographic by RADIAN ENERGY

We love an infographic and we were interested to see how much power each electrical device in the home uses... hence the POWER HUNGRY infographic powered by RADIAN ENERGY.

Canstar Blue is a consumer review and comparison site that we used to start collating the facts and figures for a number of devices. We looked at how much they would cost to run (based on a set kW/ hr and average energy rating just to make the comparisons even) for a day, a week and a year. Once we had all the figures we had to work out how to display the comparisons... circles worked for us but it meant we had to find the square root of each and every figure to create a square in which to place a circle. Nerdy! Luckily there is a site for everything and square root calculating has one. Here is an A4 pdf for you to print and stick on the fridge.

Here’s a little bit more info on infographics and some more links...

A good infographic presents data in an easily digestible visual format. It uses charts, colour, imagery and minimal text to layout the basics of the topic it is trying to explain. Cave paintings are a great example of the first infographics known to man. The Serra da Capivara in Brazil is one of the oldest at 25,000 years old. The Dunhuang Star Atlas dates back to around 649AD and it is an infographic that charts more than 1300 starts . We have even found you an infographic that showcases the history of the infographic.
