The larger environment of China's rapid economic development and rising living standards of farmers, labor force is becoming more significant, significant changes in rural household electricity consumption occurred. Based in rural areas in Shaanxi Province "Labor Transfer and Rural Energy Survey" data combined with the actual situation in rural areas, a detailed analysis of Labor Migration on electricity consumption in rural households. The study found the number of rural labor transfer significantly improves the household electricity consumption; the number of the total number of labor force the proportion of household significantly reduces the power consumption of rural households. It concludes with recommendations to improve the efficiency of farmers' income and power as well as the development of new rural construction.
