Total electrical energy consumption in 2011 was 4,138 Billion kWh (B kWh).

126.1 Million residential customers used 1,446 B kWh - 34.4% of USA's 2011 load.

17.7 Million commercial customers used 1,328 B kWh - 32.1%.

728K Industrial customers used 991 B kWh - 23.9% and

92 Transportation customers used 8 B kWh-0.2%.

388 B kWh or 9.4% were system usage (133 B kWh) and system loses and unaccounted loads (262 B kWh).

Average residential cost/kWh was $.1172 with a monthly usage of about 940 kWh for a cost of $110.17/month. Per capita consumption from the electrical grid in 2011 was 13,187 kWh and is essentially the same as a decade ago-2001.
