Have you ever wondered what energy use in kilowatt hours (kWh) means in everyday terms? We use the term to measure energy use.

It takes:

  • 0.015 kWh to charge your cell phone (based on a device with ~3,000 mAh battery size, like an iPhone 12)
  • 0.1 kWh to charge your laptop (based on a device with 100 Wh battery, like a MacBook Pro)
  • 1 kWh to keep on your incandescent desk lamp for a day
  • 10,715 kWh to power an average American home for a year

To translate kWh this into emissions, we usually have to understand the carbon intensity of the grid. Still, we can assume an average. You can learn more about this conversion on the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) website.

How much can you save with Mesa? We've translated the typical amount of energy Mesa can save the average 15,000-square-foot office space into concrete terms you can understand, such as the annual emissions from cars, households, or smartphones.

The average 15,000-square-foot office space can save 23,000 kWh per year with Mesa. What does this mean? Email us to find out -, and read on to learn more.

23,000 kWh is equivalent to 16.3 metric tons. See how this nets out below.
