BONUS POINTS Diary Example

Can be daily or every two days. The more days the more extra credit is given. It is OK to skip. Just do what you can to learn more about the energy you consume.

Energy consumption for Monday 5:30pm to Wednesday 6pm 750 KWH

We have been gone most the day for school and work. We turned the heater/air off when we left to conserve energy.

Energy consumption Saturday 12pm to Sunday 3pm 1500 KWH

We were home a lot during this time. The washer and dryer ran 4 loads of laundry. My mom was cooking with the oven. We used more energy today.
