If you don’t have your PG&E power usage available, you can make a rough estimate based on the area of the residence. Roughly, it takes about 1 kW for every 500 sq ft of living space. There are many factors that may change this such as: pool equipment, A/C usage, whether or not someone is home during the day, etc.
