Green your search!


Search engines use a surprising amount of electricity. One search uses the same amount of energy that it takes to power a lightbulb for one hour.  Some estimates now put Google’s power consumption at 15 billion kWh per year.  To put this into perspective, it means Google consumes more electricity than most countries on earth. If Google were a nation, it would rank somewhere around No. 75 of 215 countries.

Ecosia uses 100% renewable electricity. It also uses its revenue to buy rainforest and save it from destruction. Why not think about changing your search engine?
