Energy Consumption Facts

Americans tend to use far too much electricity.

"In 1997, U.S. residents consumed an average of 12,133 kilowatt-hours of electricity each, almost nine times greater than the average for the rest of the world." (Grist Magazine)

But here's something we should keep in mind:

"Worldwide, some 2 billion people are currently without electricity." (U.S. Department of Energy)

The bottom line is...

Don't waste it, and don't take it for granted.
