Depends on how efficient the system is because this is a measure of converting energy into cooling.

As a general rule, 1 ton of cooling capacity equals about 3.5 kilowatts. So a 2.5 ton system will use approximately 8.25 kilowatts. If you want to do a more formal calculation you can go here: http://www.ehow.com/how_8453387_convert-tons-kilowatts.html.

To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present.  To keep sales happy, let me just say that you can find an HVAC contractor that's happy to take your money here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl.
