InstructionsUsing your electricity utility’s online website, download your HOURLY usage data, (for as long a period as possible) to Excel. Complete the form below.
Please email the Excel file of your HOURLY usage data to email@example.com. (You may also send any meter reading photos you have to this email address.)
Here's how we'll use the data you send us:We’ll calculate the average hourly usage for the most recent April & May or Sept & Oct, by week. These are months when HVAC use is least likely in our area. (If you tell us you have a solar installation, we’ll only do this for the hours of midnight to 6 am.) The two week-hour combos with the lowest kWh usage will be used as the estimate of your home’s full idle load. For example, April 23-30 from 3 to 4 am and May 7 – 14 from 4 to 5 am. These 14 hourly readings will be averaged.
We'll email the results back to you and be interested in your observations about the findings! Thanks again for participating.
