What is the average power usage for a residential customer?
Average household usage can vary
Households in BC Hydro’s service area average just over 900 kWh per month, but that number can be misleading, especially if you’re looking at winter bills in a home with electric heat. While almost everyone’s bills go up in the colder, darker months, the effect of lower temperatures on the BC Hydro bills of electrically-heated homes can be dramatic.
In homes heated by electricity, winter bills can be five to six times higher than in the summer. In most cases, the higher bill is a result of using more than the average amount of electricity for a residential household, and that additional electricity use is billed under higher Step 2 pricing that’s part of the Residential Conservation Rate.
