I have no need to know this
Bollocks. That's like owning a car and not knowing what its gas mileage is. Even if you have no choice in who you buy your electricity from, you still ought to have even a vague awareness of this. Why? Because that is the reference point for everything else. It is also the denominator in figuring out what you pay for electricity on a per-kWh basis, which is what underpins every economic calculus on energy improvements.
Imagine, for a moment, that the poll question was "How much do you pay for electric each month?" It might be interesting in its own right, but would not be particularly useful (as the first 100 commentors would howl), because electricity rates vary tremendously across the country and world. But a kilowatt here is the same as a kilowatt there. Energy consumption is not measured in dollars, euros, and renminbi, but rather in kilowatt-hours, barrels of oil, and so on. If you want to gauge your own electricity usage against that of your peers, neighbors, countrymen, 1%-ers, or a third-world slum, you'll be comparing actual electricty usage - kWr - not money. When people talk about energy policy, sure, they talk about money, but mostly it's discussion about actual energy: how much do we need, how will we produce it, and what are the risks and benefits of doing so.
If you can't shop around for your electricity, you still have plenty of economic choices related to it. Making an effort to use less, or purchasing technologies that use less, is an economic choice. But if you don't even know how much you use now, how will you be able to gauge the effect of those choices? Want to put solar panels up to replace the local utility? Great - how much will you need? Weighing the costs and benefits of a plug-in vehicle? Great - how much electricity will it use compared to the rest of your home, and what will that cost?
Ignorance and inaction, too, is a choice, even if it isn't a conscious one.
