The paper measures the yearly urban sprawl index and household power intensity of 285 prefecture-level and Municipality cities in China from 2004 to 2017. Through the establishment of a fixed effect model, random effect model and systematic GMM model, this paper empirically analyze the impact of urban sprawl on household power intensity, and found that there is a significant and positive effect of urban sprawl on household power intensity, that is, the higher the urban sprawl, the lower the efficiency of household electricity energy utilization will be, and this effect has a cogent robustness. On this basis, the establishment of a mediating effect model found that population agglomeration playes a significant role of the partial mediating effect in the process of urban sprawl affecting household power intensity. The conclusion of this paper provides some policy implications for the scientific and reasonable urban planning in the process of urbanization in China from the perspective of optimizing household power intensity.
