I think this would be a useful feature to implement, but for those who don’t have smart metering and reporting back to the utility we depend on meter readers to come around each month. It the WX is bad or for any number of reasons they do not take the readings exactly every 30 days. It’s usually close but not always. So to accomplish what is proposed it would seem that Sense would need to poll the users account info from the utility.
If a user does have smart metering then wouldn’t they have access to the information already through their user account with the utility?
I’d like to see the Sense Alexa Skill answer questions like:
“Alexa, ask Sense how much power I used yesterday"
the response would be
"You used xx.xx kilowatts yesterday. One year ago you used xx.xx kilowatts.”
“Alexa, ask Sense how much power I have used this month"
and the response would be
"You have used xx.xx kilowatts so far this month. xx.xx kilowatts of that was
generated by solar, and xx.xx kilowatts was supplied by your utility.”
