The U.S. Energy Information Administration ( www.eia.gov ) says U.S. homes have become more energy efficient, even though the average size of new homes is bigger than in years past.
Their Today in Energy brief, released earlier this year, states, “The growth in residential energy use has slowed to below the rate of household growth, meaning that per-household energy consumption has decreased. Analysis of data since 1980 shows how improved energy efficiency has… offset more than 70% of the growth in both the number of households and the size of dwellings.”
