No it doesn't, it only consumes what it needs to consume.

No silly, wattage consumption changes dynamically with the load that your computer is under. Basically a 700W PSU means that it can at most, supply 700W, it does not mean that it uses 700W of power 24/7.

Bigger PSU doesn't always equate to bigger electricity bill.
