The average person globally uses 2255 Watts of power, or a little less than 23 x100 Watt light bulbs. source- {jagadees.wordpress.com/} The source of the above information is not correct. The average household uses approximately 1000 kilowatt hours or 1 million watt-hours per month. 1.5kw is 1500 watts. 15x 100-watt bulbs. Most electric stoves can draw 10kw(100x light bulbs) if the oven and all top units are on highest setting during the initial warm-up. Electric clothes dryers have 4kw(40x bulbs) heaters that cycle on and off during a drying period that can last 30minutes to an hour if you overload. Electric water heaters may have one or 2 elements at 4kw each, but only one element is on at a time.

A kilowatt hour is equal to using 1kw(10x 100watt bulbs) continuously for 1 hour. I would hate to pedal a bicycle generator for 10cents per hour and try to generate a Kwh. In spite of what you may have heard, look for ways to improve the high-power consuming devices first, then working through to computers, televisions, and other lower consuming devices. 1. Every house will be different. If you have a 100 Watt light bulb lit all day you would use 2400 watt hours in a day. You can find out by looking at your electric meter at the start of a day and write down the values on the meter. Then read the meter again at the same time the next day and subtract. To get an average value, look at your electric bill for the month and divide by the number of days in the billing period. You will then know the average amount per day. 2. True The average house in the USA uses very close to 1000 Kilowatt hours per month
