Average 'geek' home power drain?

How large is the phantom power drain in an 'average' home? Thinking about installing a small solar power system on our house. The idea would be to cover the phantom power drain from appliances - as a small but meaningful step. I'd envision something that would cover the drain of random crud running all the time, wallwarts + tivo + wireless modem + refridgerator + a small ups + fios termination box. Trying to calculate a number that seems reasonable for those items. (Note: leaving heating out of this...)
