The rate we use energy is called power, and it is measured in watts. Power over time clocks up to energy in kilowatt-hours (kWh). (It makes no sense to talk about kilowatts per hour.)

kWh units of energy are totaled up in the electricity bill. UK households use 3-4000 kWh of electricity each year on average. This represents a rate of electricity consumption of about 400 watts on average. On average, each person in the UK uses about 200 watts of electricity and as there are 8760 hours in each year this adds up to about 1800 kWh per year each.
