AbstractThis paper analyzes the effect of Online Learning from Home (OLFH) during the COVID-19 pandemic on electricity consumption and the quality of the learning process quality. This study identifies the reduction of electricity consumption on campus during OLFH, which can be utilized to maintain the quality of the learning process. The electricity consumption data was analyzed from the direct measurement using the electricity consumption real-time monitoring system. Again, the data analyzed of the online learning process quality was obtained from the student survey via Google Forms. The results of monitoring electricity consumption before and during OLFH showed that the most significant decrease in electricity consumption occurred in classroom buildings, with a decrease value of 68.74%. Meanwhile, the lowest reduction of electricity consumption occurred in the rectorate building, with its reduced value of 19.02%. A student survey showed that most respondents were satisfied with the transition from face-to-face learning to OLFH during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, this study also identified negative aspects of OLFH. Reducing electricity consumption during OLFH will cost saving for the university. The cost saving can be used to implement programs to address the deficiencies of OLFH and improve its infrastructure so that the quality of the learning process is maintained.
