Abstract

The knowledge of consumer electricity consumption is essential for the design of smart grid integration strategies and distributed generation. In recent times, the total energy consumption in the residential sector has continued to increase resulting from economic expansions, population and floor area growth which is an indication of a consistently increasing demand. Energy independence as part of the solution to energy efficiency has become a pressing issue for today's society. Using AutoCAD software alongside with an Excel spreadsheet, the average-demand, load factor, demand-factor and unit power density of the designed building were computed for an average urban and rural household. The hourly load profile of the building and percentage energy usage across both locations for the various seasons were determined. Lastly, a comparative performance of LED and Incandescent Lighting schemes were examined. It is hoped that the results of this study would help the decisions of the residential energy users.
