SmartHub is the easy, convenient control center for all of your account needs. Pay your bill, view your electricity usage and billing history, report power outages and service issues and more, all from your computer, phone or tablet.
Some of the great features in SmartHub include robust energy use analytics tools, which allow you to compare energy use over time and against weather data. Tracking your energy use like this lets you see if you’re using more energy than usual and empowers you to make adjustments if necessary.
Some ways you can use SmartHub for energy use monitoring:
- Analyze and understand usage trends to find ways to cut back.
- Create and track a monthly budget to avoid unexpected high utility bills.
- Set a point or range in time to compare differences in usage.
Below are some key energy monitoring tools within the My Usage area of SmartHub.
Usage explorer gives you a detailed look at your past and current usage, all in one place. View your usage and weather trends by month, day or hour.
Usage comparison lets you compare two bills worth of usage history side by side. View the differences between this month’s last year, or other combinations to see how your bill varies each month.
Average Usage shows you what your typical or average usage is for your selected time period. For example, see your average usage on each day of the week (such as Tuesdays), over the course of a year. Or see your typical usage in each hour of the day over the course of two weeks. Discover when you can save the most on your utility bill.
With the Usage Planning tool, create markers for a point in time to help you keep track of the differences in your usage. For example, set an energy marker to find out the change in your usage after installing a new water heater or upgrading an appliance.
Want a reminder that your bill is due? Interested in knowing that your payment was posted? Stay on top of your account by telling SmartHub when and how to contact you. You can even keep your bill within budget by setting energy-use thresholds that let you know when you’re using more than you’d like.
