Joulemeter is the software use for the estimate electricity consumption by your computer or laptop.
I think it is the greatest software because with this you can know how much electricity is consumption by your PC
It estimates the energy usage of a VM, computer, or software by measuring the hardware resources (CPU, disk, memory, screen etc) being used and converting the resource usage to actual power usage based on automatically learned realistic power models.
