Home Energy Reports

How Does Your Home’s Energy Use Stack Up?

The more you know about how your home uses energy, the more control you have over how much you spend every month. Valuable data from SMECO can show you how even simple adjustments can produce significant savings.

Home Energy Reports are sent to a randomly selected group of SMECO members every one to two months, sharing condensed snapshots of information found on the SMECO Account Manager site.

The report illustrates your usage compared to about 100 similar homes (as shown in the example below). Other charts in the report reveal how your habits differ from others, whether you’re using more or less energy than last year, and where you might find opportunities to save. The report also includes energy insights and savings tips, so you can make informed choices that are right for you and your home.

What kind of home is SMECO comparing to mine?

The Home Energy Report compares your energy use to the usage patterns of a group of about 100 homes in your area that have similar square footage and heating sources. These comparisons are completely anonymous, and no member’s personal information or individual energy use is released. To ensure we are comparing you as precisely as possible, please update your Home Profile with the most accurate information.
