If he can get data from several households, I think it would better.

If he could get one or two years worth of bills from several households it would be really good. We would be able to extract minimum, average, maximum and seasonal variations of energy consumption. Also profiling the equipment of several households would help in guesstimating the peak power requirements.

That might be a bit much to ask for, but any info would help.  

Just FYI:

I put my fridge on the Kill-a-watt today (It's a 7.4 cu ft Avanti). Consumption when running is right at 100w, but a 400w inverter will NOT start it.  Starting load (according to the Kill-a-watt) is about 750 watts.  Actual kwh/per day is not relevant this time of year, as it's cool.

It was running. When it's not running and the light is off, the consumption is not measurable. There is no defrost.

100w at 50% duty cycle would be 1200wh/day, and previous experience is about 1000wh/day.

I crunched the numbers and realized 100W could not be standby. 100W standby would be 2.4kWh/day.
