What is electricity consumption measured in?
Generally speaking, for properties such as households, offices, factories and other industrial sites, schools, hospitals, etc., their electrical energy consumption is measured in kilowatt.hours. (kW.h) For towns, cities, counties, states, countries and other major geographical areas, their electrical energy consumption is measured in megawatt.hours (MW.h) or gigawatt.hours. (GW.h)

How is electrical consumption measured for electronics?
Generally speaking, the electrical energy consumption of low-power electronics circuits is measured in watt.hours (W.h) whereas the energy consumption of household appliances and most other pieces of equipment, apparatus or machinery that take more power than items which only have low-power electronics circuits in them is measured in kilowatt.hours. (kW.h)
Does a increase in current result in increase in electrical consumption?
As you are billed on the consumption of wattage and wattage is the product of amp times volts the answer to your question is yes. An increase in current will result in an increase in electrical consumption. Additional Answer Residential consumers are billed on their energy consumption (there is no such thing as 'electrical consumption' as 'electricity' is not a measurable quantity!), expressed in kilowatt hours. There may be several reasons for an increase in load current. For example, if the residential load has a low power factor, it will be drawing more current than necessary, but the energy consumed will be no different from if the load had a high power factor. So, for residential loads, an increase in load current doesn't necessarily mean a higher energy consumption.

What is power consumption?
The term power consumption is defined as the amount of electrical energy used over time in an appliance. Power consumption is measured using kilo watts. Another Answer Power is simply a rate; the rate of energy transfer. So power cannot be 'consumed'; it's energy that's being consumed. So, when we say 'power consumption', what we mean is 'the rate of energy consumption'. As power is a rate, it is measured in joules per second which, in SI, is given a special name: the watt.

What is the reason of high consumption in electricity?
You should be asking the reason for the high consumption of 'electrical energy'. The answer is that it depends on two factors: (a) the size of the load, expressed in kilowatts, and (b) the time for which it operates, expressed in hours. Electrical energy, for the purpose of billing at least, is expressed in kilowatt hours. This is a measure of 'the amount of energy consumed, over a period of one hour, at the rate of one kilowatt'. 'High consumption', therefore, results from running a heavy load over a long period of time.
