This paper discusses consumer awareness and consumer Current electric consumption behavior as possible factors that could increase human motivation in committing to conserving behavior especially on electrical energy. The study also looks at how much motivation factor can create changes in consumer behavior towards the desired outcome.The study tested three hypotheses which are H1: Current Electric Consumption Behavior (CB) has significant influence on Motivation (MV), H2: Awareness (AW) has significant influence on Motivation (MV) and H3: Motivation (MV) has significant effect on Behavior Change (BC).Based on the finding gathered using PLS analysis on 400 respondents indicated that current electrical consumption behavior and consumer awareness have positive effect on person motivation about current electrical issue. Motivation have a negative correlation with resistance to behavior change. This may indicate that the higher the motivation level that a person has the less resistance that consumer feel in changing their behavior towards electric conservation.
