Home Energy Usage Report
About a year ago Hydro One started sending me these letters with a bar graph depicting how I was using more energy than my neighbours. I put a stop to the wasteful letters, but I can still see the monthly reports on my Hydro One Dashboard on line. Twice I went into my settings and corrected the information on my actual square footage and number of inhabitants, but I haven't seen any significant change in the reports.
Then, last December I got the same kind of letter from Union Gas and I opted out of paper notifications. After the next email notification I went into my Union Gas account and updated my home information. It seems they use the same software as Hydro One. Well today I got an email report from Union Gas that I'm using 34% less gas than my neighbours instead of 34% more, as before.
The crazy thing is, according to Hydro One, I'm still using 34% more than my neighbours and the information in my settings is exactly the same for Hydro One and Union Gas. What makes it even more weird is that I don't have central air, which means I use far less hydro than my neighbours in the summer, but it does not show. The only thing I can think of is that nobody else in the house besides me turns lights off. But since we have a lot of CFLs and LEDs, that should not make a big difference.
Just putting this out these to see what others have experienced.
