Transactions on Solana Seem to Be More Green than Searches on Google

Solana Foundation published a report dedicated to energy consumption on its blockchain. It says that one transaction on Solana consumes less energy than two searches on Google and 24 times less energy than charging a phone.

The report includes various measurements stating that a single transaction on Solana uses 0.00051 kWh, or 1,836 Joules, of energy. An average search on Google uses 0.0003 kWh or 1,080 Joules of energy.

Overall, the entire Solana network consumes an estimated 3,186,000 kWh per year which is comparable to the average electricity usage of 986 households in the US.
