According to the Organization of American States' Office for Sustainable Development, the average American household uses about 10,000 kWh yearly. Answer: Canada Natural Res…ources has measured this for several Canadian cities, a typical city's values (Calgary) is shown at the link. Overall the average is under 300 GJ/yr. Similar data may be available for other cities. The graph at the link breaks down the use goe fuel and electricity as well as typical yuses
It is easier for the standard of measurement of Natural gas to be measured in cubic feet. That is how the Gas companies measure the amount of gas produced, used, moved...etc. …Since a therm is a measurement of energy we can approximate the usage like this: The energy contained in a a cubic foot of gas varies. Therefore an exact Therm usage value will be hard to come by. (It would be easier if there was a measurement of BTU or therm content posted. The Natural Gas companies know this value when gas is acquired from the well, but they are more interested in how much they are moving.) Anyway, on AVERAGE 1ft3 of Natural Gas contains 1,000 Btu of energy. (A Btu is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit.) So...In the USA, the federal energy information administration has measured that in 2006 we used 21,653.086 Billion ft3 of Natural Gas. That is 21,653.086 *109 ft3. Since 1 cubic foot of gas contains on AVERAGE 1,000 Btu of energy, the USA used an average of 21,653.086 * 1012 Btu. Convert that into Therms and we have: (1 therm = 100,000 Btu, 1 dt = 1,000,000 Btu ) 21,653,086,000 dt, or 216,530,860,000 Therms used in 2006. NOTE: Remember that this is a rough average since the energy contents of different samples of Natural Gas will vary by well or location.
it is equivalent to the water going over niagral falls for 30 minutes.
The average electrical consumption per household in France is 6762 Kwh per year.
Some Africans live in cities, and they might use electricity in the same way that most people in developed nations do. Some Africans live in shanty towns on the edge of …cities, they would have a poor electricity supply, or maybe none. Some Africans live in the vast countryside where there is no electricity at all. Look at the news reports of the trouble near Goma in the Congo - there are thousands of peole driven out of their homes who have no food, and no chance at all of using electricity.

The average home in Australia uses 14KW's per hour.
Roughly 50 to 60 billion cubic feet per day (bcf/D) including residential and industrial use. At 50 bcf/D, this is about 1.5 trillion cubic feet per month or 18.4 t…rillion cubic feet/year. See: http://tonto.eia.doe.gov/dnav/ng/ng_cons_sum_dcu_nus_m.htm

There are too many variables to consider a particular household to be "average". Fuel consumption will vary by home size, insulation, location, and usage habits. However…, typical homes require 50 million to 150 million BTU per year for heat, so assuming 100 million BTU to be about average: Assume 0.82 million btu (net heating value*) per 1000 cubic feet of natural gas. 1000 cubic feet of gas / .82 net heating value ~=1,219.51 1,220 cubic feet of gas will be required to generate 1 million btu of heat, so you'll need about 1,220 ft^3 * 100 for the year, or 122,000 cubic feet of gas. At $7 per 1000 cubic feet, that's 122 * $7 = $854 for the year At $9 per 1000 cubic feet, that's 122 * $9 = $1.098 for the year. If you have a larger or smaller house, a warmer or colder climate, better or poorer insulation, etc, your results will of course vary. You'll require more heat in Minnesota than in Arizona, etc. * gross heating value is about 1.03 million btu per 1000 cubic feet, net assumes 80% efficiency. -Eric

I have a 2800sf home and a pool, I live in North Texas. During the summer its about 3000 kwh or $300 to $400 a month. During the winter its about 1500 kwh or $150 to $200 a mo…nth.
Though they don't plan to spend more than necessary, US families will dole out anywhere from $500 to upwards of $3,000 depending on what purchases are made.
It could be 5000 kilowatt-hours per year.
About 10 units in summer, 30 in winter.
