Review Usage Data

Overview
My Usage offers you a quick snapshot of how much energy you’ve used, and allows you to compare that usage over time and against weather data. Why should you care? Tracking your usage will help you determine if you are using more energy than usual, so you can make adjustments before you get an unexpectedly large bill. In addition, having access to this information can help you make wise energy decisions.
