WHAT IS THE CONSUMPTION IN KW/H FOR A TYPICAL AUSTRALIAN HOME?

This is a difficult question to answer as it depends on the type of house, size, number of people living in the property etc. As a very rough estimate nowadays a typical Australian home with 2 adults and 2 children would consume between 15 and 28 kW/h per day.

Nevertheless large modern open plan homes with pool, aquarium and down lights can easily use between 40 and 50kW/h per day with some households using as much as 60kW/h of electricity per day. A highly energy-efficient home with energy efficient appliances, a net meter and solar power system can use as little as a 5 -10 kW/h per day.
