This online interactive calculates your EQ (Energy Quotient), which is a measure of how much energy you use compared to an average household. The interactive asks you about different things in your house that consume electricity, such as computers, DVD players and air conditioners, and compares your annual kilowatt-hour consumption to an average home. The questions are basically an inventory of the appliances you use. Suggestions are provided at the end for reducing your energy use at home.
