According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) reports, the national average is 909 kilowatt hours with a monthly electric cost of $110.00. Electric costs vary by state and electrical usage depends on how hot or cold it is as well as if you’re in an urban or suburban area.
Compared to other countries, the U.S. has the 2nd highest household consumption in the world. Furthermore, this is 2-3x more than European households. Even though Louisiana consumes the most electricity per month, Hawaii is the most expensive at roughly $200 per month. Each American uses about 4,500 kWh each year. This is about 5x the average of all people who have electricity in their houses…in the world.
