How Much Electricity Do We Use?

IDT Energy has found that in the United States the average household used about 920 kWh each month in the year 2006. In 2003 the entire U.S. used 3,883 billion kWh, which translates as 13,868 kWh per person based on the total population of the United States being 280 million people that year.

On one day in California there was peak use of 50,743 megawatt-hours of electricity. That translates to a number that might be hard to say out loud: 50,743,000,000 watt-hours, on just one day!
