Various forms of quarantine and social restrictions to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted lifestyle. WFH has emerged as a growing trend in this new normal era. The implementation of WFH results in all work-related activities becoming home-centred. This study aims to analyse the pheasant and find out the effect of household appliance use on energy consumption during the implementation of WFH. The questionnaire survey was conducted in April 2020 and it collected 215 responses from residents of Indonesia, during the pandemic which was distributed online. The data were analysed using a multiple regression analysis with SPSS to determine the relationship between variables. The results showed that the length of WFH time affected an increase of energy consumption especially from the use of home computer, internet, rice cooker, AC, and water needs. In addition, the increase that happened also depends on the population living and the size of the building they live in. If this continues, it could lead to the risk of an energy crisis. Strategies related to proper distribution and energy demand are needed to build resilience and form a sustainable society.
