We take your smart meter data, home profile information (if provided), weather, as well as other data, and run it through our algorithms to approximate your energy usage and costs by appliance.
We can generate an estimated breakdown of your usage into as many as 12 appliance categories.
First, we identify the categories that can use a large amount of electricity, like Heating, Cooling, Electric Hot Water, Pool Pump, Standby & always on, and Electric Vehicle, based on the usage from your smart meter.
Fridges & Freezers, and Standby & always on are identified from your smart meter usage when other appliances are not running.
Once we’ve estimated usage for the larger categories, we then use statistical data to approximate how much your other appliance categories, like Home Entertainment, Laundry & Dishwasher, Cooking, and Lighting are consuming
The Anything Else category includes usage we cannot identify individually, including smaller appliances e.g. smartphone chargers, hair dryers, fans.
Please note: Appliance usage estimates aren’t 100% accurate, though we’re continuously improving our algorithms to deliver relevant, useful Energy Insights for you.
