If I build a house using Cape Brick‘s products, roughly how much energy or electricity would I be saving?
A typical residential house, using 40,000 bricks, would result in an energy saving of:
1)21,000Kwh when compared to conventional concrete bricks
This is equivalent to the energy required to power 23 ordinary size houses for 1 month!
2)82,000Kwh when compared with conventional clay bricks
This is equivalent to the energy required to power 91 ordinary size houses for 1 month!
Average (ordinary) household electricity consumption in SA (per Eskom published figures) is 900Kwh per month.
