kWh challenge

I pay close attention to my electrical power usage and try to keep my power bills low. Success is relatively easy for me: I live alone in a modest apartment that does not use electricity for heat, and I've switched out most of the incandescent lamps for CFLs. In six months of billing, I've averaged 96 kWh per month or about 3.2 kWh per day.

Send me the kWh figures from you bills and briefly describe your household situation:

1) How many residents?
2) Electric heating?
3) Region/state you live in?
4) What energy-saving measures have you taken:
- Installed CFLs
- Installed switched power strips to eliminate "phantom loads"
- Replaced old appliances with energy-efficient models
- Other

Where's the power going?
