Monitoring Your Electric Usage

By
Real Estate Agent with AgentOwned Realty, Heritage Group, Inc.

 

I actually started out investigating how much energy can be saved by hanging out clothes on a clothes line.  And as I was digging, I wanted to look up the cost of a kWH of electricity from Black River Electric Cooperative.  The locally owned, power Cooperative that provide service to my Sumter, SC home. 

 

My Usage BREC Sumter SCWhile visiting their website, I saw a link for a service called “My Usage”.  I had seen this before, but had an issue signing up and forgot to return.  Well, I decided I would try again today.  With a prior bill in hand, I entered my account number and my meter number and set up a password.  Then boom, it was there right in front of me.  I could clearly tell when we had shut off the central air conditioning and opted to open the windows.  I could see the spikes in power when we are home all day on the weekends and doing the laundry and have appliances on more.  Then I saw the energy usage for the last 24 hours and dropped my jaw.  It was almost twice as much as any day in the prior week! 

 

So Monday I will be making a call the BREC (Black River Electric Cooperative) of Black River as we call it around here and see if they can give me any further insight.  This is a great service as it will send you an email as often as you want about your energy usage and it will also send you an alert when your energy usage goes above a certain kWH that you have designated!

As green as I am at times, this is an effort for me at times too. :)

Oh Laura, it is hard with a four year old in the house who doesn't seem to remember to shut things off.  I am also writing a post about my clothes line that I love and how much energy it saves.
