What’s the average energy usage in the UK?
According to the energy regulator Ofgem, the average household uses 12,000 kWh of gas and 3,100 kWh of electricity per year.
It’s handy to know what average households use in energy. That way you can get a rough idea of whether you’re within the limits of what’s ‘normal’, or whether you need to start thinking of ways to save energy.
You should be able to find out what your monthly consumption is from your last bill. Energy use is measured in kilowatt hours (kWh) so that’s what you need to look out for.
