Demand for electricity is derived from the flow of services provided by a household’s durable energy-using appliances. This paper aims to find out the factors which explain the stock of electrical appliances for a household by applying regression analysis. A questionnaire based study for 395 Delhi households was undertaken wherein the sample households were selected on the basis of stratified random sampling technique. To know the lifestyle choices and electricity use habits of the households, socio-demographic variables proved to be very useful. The regression results indicate that the income of the household, family size, house size and the place of the residence explain the variation in the stock of appliance with a household. The education of the head of the household does not influence the stock of electrical appliances with a household.
