Household gadgets take a toll on power grid, pocket books

Power Grid

Every computer, hair dryer, and electric car that needs juice to operate takes a toll on the infrastructure of the various power grids around the world. It’s not a new revelation, but it’s something that should be remembered as the effects of climate change become more apparent with every passing day.

And yet, it isn’t. It’s not remembered by most. We go about our business thinking that there’s always going to be power. Some take action in the way of recycling, cutting personal carbon emissions, and by making purchases from “green” companies, but it’s still only a small percentage.

If you want to get people’s attention, you go after their pocket books. That’s the premise behind this Infographic by our friends at 1bog. Just how much do the household gadgets we use every day really cost us? The results may surprise you.

Some books, particularly those with shorter runs (i.e. of which fewer
copies are to be made) will be printed on sheet-fed offset presses, but
most books are now printed on web presses, which are fed by a continuous
roll of paper, and can consequently print more copies in a shorter
time. On a sheet-fed press a stack of sheets of paper stands at one end
of the press, and each sheet passes through the press individually.

Greywater composes 50–80% of residential wastewater generated by a household’s sanitation equipment (sinks, showers and kitchen runoff, but not toilets, which generate blackwater.) These terms may have different meanings in other countries and cultures.
