Al Gore - energy conservation is for the little people?

Does Al Gore believe energy conservation is for the little people, the hoi polloi? The Tennessee Center for Policy Research, as reported by the Drudge Report today, says that Al Gore's home electricity use is 20x that of the average US household.
Gore's mansion, [20-room, eight-bathroom] located in the posh Belle Meade area of Nashville, consumes more electricity every month than the average American household uses in an entire year, according to the Nashville Electric Service (NES).
Seems that the average household consumers 10,656 kilowatt hours, compared to Gore's 221,000 kWh use. Reminds me of the time Barbara Streisand urged all the little people to forego clothes dryers and line dry their wash, instead. And then her spokesperson was aghast at the suggestion that Babs might do the same.
