Thanks for the info. You’re right we use a ton more power here in the states.I was using official government published data from the Netherlands (I don't live there, but was the first hit I found).
They had averaged the electical use for household based on size of the household.
It increases a bit as there are more family members, but it's far less than linear.
Just did try to find the official numbers for where I live, I only found this calculation, but it's not directly from the official source (they claim they got the data from the Federal Government Agency for Economy):
[My translation to English]
FWIW: I know US based households use a LOT more electricity than those of us in Europe.
Also the average household size in Belgium is 2.2 members (same source)
No idea of their sources but their avg for minnesota is about right for our house per month.
Do you know how much the homes in your state use (on average) for electricity each month? We rank states from highest household consumption to lowest.
the numbers here seem to line up as well.
What is the average kWh usage of the typical U.S. home?An average 2,000 sq. ft. U.S. home uses around 1,000 kWh of energy per month or about 32 kWh per day.
