What % of energy is heating for a US home? // DOE: EV charging consumes less energy than water heating

DOE: EV charging consumes less energy than water heating in a typical household 12 September 2017 Charging an electric vehicle consumes less energy than several common household appliances, according to data compiled by the US Department of Energy (DOE). Annual energy consumption for a typical household shows that home heating consumes by far the most energy (11,300 kWh) followed by water heating (4,700 kWh) and charging an electric car (2,800 kWh). Based on average driving habits and consumption rates for the Nissan LEAF, charging an electric car consumes just over twice as much energy as a refrigerator which consumes about 1,300 kWh annually.
