Good afternoon from Boston, everyone!
I hope everyone is doing well. With a majority of folks spending extra time at home or hosting additional family and friends, I’m sure a lot of you have seen changes in our home energy usage. Let’s share what we’ve seen!
How much has your daily and weekly usage grown since you’ve started staying home? Take a few screenshots of your weekly/daily usage or share some data from your CSV export!
I’ve only had my monitor for about a month, but the week of March 2nd is a reliable control when comparing to the following weeks energy usage. I began working from home the week of March 9th, so I’m leaving that out of the weekly average calculations.
For a normal week (March 2nd), my home averages about 48.1kWh
For the weeks I’ve worked from home (March 16th and March 23rd), I’m averaging about 78.55kWh.
Overall, that represents an increase of +63% since I’ve been working from home.
I’ll update this as time goes on to average together more weeks of data!
