Power to the People

by Jinryu

There’s a neat little demographic thing at the bottom of our electricity and gas bill, which is a comparison to other Australian households’ usage of electricity and gas.

We just got our electricity bill for the last 3 months, and, hate to brag, but the usage for [CM] and I is about a third of the average one person Australian household.

We used 319 kWh during the period– the average usage for a typical 2 person Australian household is 1200 kWh.

On one hand, that’s pretty cool on our end. On the other end… how is it that the average household uses so much?
