A large proportion of Indonesia’s electricity consumption is used by households. Indonesian electricity usage in household sector has been found covering 42.34% of total consumption and tend to increase in the future. Therefore, household has been identified as important target group for energy efficiency and conservation program. This paper explores the relationship between household electricity use and socio-demographic variables. The study was conducted among 2045 Indonesian households residing in five largest administrative regions for electricity consumers in Indonesia. Cluster sampling method was used to determine the number of sampling and the data analysis was done using Kruskal Wallis test. The results show that occupation was the main sociodemographics factor explaining variability in electricity consumption behavior at residential sector while other factors seemed have weaker correlation. These findings indicate that more comprehensive studies are needed on Indonesian household energy consumption behavior before designing energy efficiency scenarios for conservation policy.
