Ausgrid is providing the following data on electricity consumption within our
network area for the 2010/2011 financial year to be used in developing
applications. The data is from customer billing data and grouped by local
government areas (LGA) in Ausgridas network.
Average electricity consumption by geographic area can vary significantly due
to a number of factors. These include differences in climate, the use of
natural gas, the type of housing (house or apartment), type of business
(commercial or industrial), and varying household socio-demographics or
These figures also do not necessarily include the electricity used in common
areas of apartments like halls, garages or pools. About 20% of energy in an
apartment building is typically used in these sorts of areas.
This data does not include high voltage customers and supply to services such
as public lighting and bus shelters.
