HOW MUCH ELECTRICITY DOES NEW YORK USE?


Posted by Leonard Steinberg on April 23rd, 2012

New York City uses 11, 000 Megawatt-hours of electricity on average each day. One megawatt represents the amount need to power 100 homes! (1 Megawatt = 1,000 KiloWatt = 1,000,000 Watt….. So New York uses 11 Billion Watt-hours per day…..now cover those rooftops with Solar!

  1. The 11,000 MW-Hrs per day is very low. This would equate to an average power consumption of only 458 MW (11,000 MW-Hr divided by 24 hours).
