Electric Appliances

These electrical appliances and electronics devices are operated by electricity. If you have or plan to have a residential solar generated power, make sure you have efficient appliances (in the USA these appliances carry the Energy Star Label, a label that rates the appliance energy efficiency). This is the list of energy hungry domestic appliances:
