WHAT’S INCLUDED:

12 Task Cards Comparing Savings with Various Lightbulbs These problems include problems such as… Esther heard about LED light bulbs, but wanted to calculate the actual cost per year before buying them for her entire house. Esther did some research & found that incandescent bulbs cost \$0.01 per hour in electricity, while LED’s cost \$0.0022 per hour. If her home has 62 light bulbs and has the lights on for an average of 4 hours per day, what is the savings for 1 year for Esther to switch all of her light bulbs to LED’s?

12 Task Cards Calculating the Cost Savings of Energy Efficient Washer & Dryer These problems include problems such as… Alexis was in the market for a new washer and dryer. The old ones still worked, but not efficiently. The new washer and dryer cost \$2350 for both of them. The cost to run the old washer and dryer was \$1.32 per day. The new washer and dryer are energy efficient and cost \$0.18 per day to run. How long will it take for Alexis to get her money back in savings?

6 Task Cards Working with Budget Bills These problems include problems such as… The following table shows Barbara’s monthly electric bills for the past year. If Barbara’s electric company offered a budget bill (average) option, how much would she have to pay each month?

10 Task Cards Comparing Various A/C Units These problems include problems such as… Madison was in the market for A/C. A new central air unit costs \$2900 for her size house. The other option is using window units. A window unit costs \$190. If each window unit cools one room, and Madison has 7 rooms, how much will she save going with window units?
