The Research Question

OUR IRS TOPIC: An investigation of the average household's energy usage and ways to decrease it.

Q1) What do people in households use that need electricity?
Q2) What do they do to reduce this?
Q3) Do they know what they are waisting?

We want to find out why people are waisting electricity and how do we conserve it.
