The Power of Music

I’ve had some musical inspiration of late and have been using my music computer a fair bit – it’s an old-ish Pentium 4 with 1GB of RAM and as far as I can tell from the energy monitor uses around 300W of power.

Before my current music production activities, our daily average electricity consumption was around 5kWh daily, it’s gone up a bit with my studio activities though. There’s also the powered monitors and the LCD monitor to consider.

The big spike was one day when we did several clothes washes and dish washes all in one day. Electricity binge!!
