Product Description
Designed as an activity for AP Physics/Physics students studying power consumption, this activity has students create a dream home with 20 appliances, estimate using a table of formulas how much the bill will cost (including determining an electrical supplier), brainstorm ideas for ways to reduce the cost of the energy bill (they have a goal of reducing an energy bill by 20% with a total budget of $350 with a detailed description of the process), and finally they examine renewable sources of energy and why these are not commonly chosen by the consumer.

Quick note: I handed out a copy of a ComEd Electric bill (from the site) for students to reference when calculating their own!
