Average Home Energy Usage
- This page aims to get data on the average amount of energy (focusing on electricity for now, but could include methane etc later) consumed by an average household
- This can be used as is, or used to show potential savings via different OSE solutions
- Also useful as a benchmark for what a house with no "losses/compramises" on the buyer's side would use
- It seems a large portion (~50% (double check this) ) is on heating and cooling ( HVAC ), SO via Hydronic Heating (via biomass and/or solar thermal), And some sort
of cooling via Absorbtion Refrigeration and Dessicant Refrigeration (See Hydronic Cooling as well) this power usage may be halfed?
As a whole
- "In 2018, the average annual electricity consumption for a U.S. residential utility customer was 10,972 kilowatthours (kWh), an average of about 914 kWh per month."
- "As of 2015, the average annual household electricity consumption in the US is 10,766 kWh.
- Does this include US territories etc? Also may be good to get more specific data
- "Residential electricity consumption in Florida averages 1,081 kWh/month, which ranks 13th in the U.S."
- Source for this from "ElectricityLocal"
- 1,081kwh/month / 31.42 average days/month = ~34.4 kwh/day
- Note that this doesn't take into account the time of use, and weather/generation conditions etc
- A PDF on This, has graphs but where are the hard numbers?
