Electricity…How Much Do You Use?

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) has released a study showing that energy expenditures by American households were up an average of 11.8 %  per year from 2005 to 2009, from $1,180 per year to $2,024.

The agency suggested expenditures were higher because of larger homes, more electronics that were larger in size (such as televisions), and an increase in the number of appliances per household — significantly because the number of refrigerators had doubled in many households.

On its website, the EIA has an exhaustive table showing home energy use based on housing type, year of construction, size of homes, number of household members, family income and other factors.

In the last decade, what have you added to your home that would make your household use more electricity? How many TV’s do you have, how many more loads of laundry do you do? Do you run your dishwasher more than you hand wash dishes? Do you have an extra refrigerator or freezer in your garage? If you have become more diligent to saving on your electric bill, what tips can you give to help others?
