Energy usage

We have received two power bills constituting a little less than two months of electricity service at the new house.

We have averaged a tiny bit less than 14 kWh per day.  By way of comparison, the average American house uses about 30 kWh per day, according to the Department of Energy.

Except for a few days last week, the weather since we've moved into the house has been very temperate, so we weren't expecting a huge bill.  Still, it's nice to see such a low bill, especially considering that electricity is our only energy source - we don't use natural gas or heating oil.
