IELTS Task 1 Writing
You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.
The line graph shows the change in the amount of electricity used during a day in two seasons and the pie chart indicates the different uses of electricity. Describe the main features and make comparisons where relevant.
Write at least 150 words.

OVERVIEW (paraphrase of the question WITH more detail + the most observable features(s)
The line graph depicts the movement of power consumption throughout a 24-hour period, with intervals of three hours, in both winter and summer seasons, from zero to 50K units. The pie chart delineates the distribution of electricity usage in winter into four specified categories. At first glance, it is clear that winter usage of electricity on average is at least double that of summer; furthermore, in winter three categories have similar levels of electrical application while the fourth, heating, is dominant.

ANALYSES
Looking at the line graph in detail, the average daily usage of summertime electricity hovers mostly around 15K units with two spikes in the day reaching 20K units, one at 15:00 o’clock and the other at midnight. In contrast, winter use of electricity fluctuates more, between 30K and nearly 50K units throughout the day. At 3 am, 40K units of power are used which then decreases to 30K units over the next six hours and then climbs back up to nearly 50K units by 9 pm, after which time, it rapidly decreases until midnight.
Interpreting the winter usage of electricity further, just over half of all power, 52.5%, is used to heat water and rooms. Smaller appliances like vacuum cleaners and electrical tools, and lights, TV, radio, use the same proportion of electricity that together make up roughly a third of the total. The remaining 17.5% of power during winter is dedicated to larger appliances, such as washing machines and ovens which generate heat.

SUMMARY (not an opinion, just a simple fact that we learn by looking at the data – NOT a repeat of the overview or analyses)
In summary, it can be inferred from looking at the line graph and pie chart that a large portion of the increased power consumption during the winter months results from heating rooms and water.
