Uhhh - We use less than that. 2.500 kWh per year. Changed all lights to LED's, removed all Phantom loads. Turn off innet connection when we go to bed. Refigirator and Frezer are most effecient awaileble. Electric ceramic stowe. We cook every day. 2 PC's - not laptops.
Small 22" Flat screen TV. No electricity for heating though.

Change them bubls to LED!
