This study has three (3) main objectives which are, to identify energy used (electricity) in Low cost and medium cost terrace and flat house, to identify factors that influence electricity energy usage in residential buildings through occupancies, space and environmental condition and to suggest the suitable mechanism for electricity energy saving in residential building. From the finding and analysis it can identify the factors that influence the use of electricity in residential buildings such as passive design factor, building occupancies and the use of electrical equipment per day.
