I was recently asked about my annual electricity consumption (thinking of getting solar panels), so I thought I’d dig it out from my account. However, I noticed a couple of things.
I thought I might find some reference to the annual total in my statistics page. But it only shows the graph for the current year, and not actual figures, only prices paid. It would be great to have more real data available to look at here (I would also repeat my request to keep the “estimated” figure for each month visible so I can see how the monthly actually figure compares (did I spend more/less or was estimate accurate?)
I therefore turned to official documents. I recall getting an email with my two annual statements for Gas & Electricity (I believe this is a requirement). I assumed I would find them in my messages on the site. I found my “Annual Statement” on 1/4 and it says “Annual Statement”
However, when I click on the download, I only get my GAS report. Is there any reason I don’t have my ELECTRICITY statement? Is it just me, or is this a general issue?
I did find my emails from April, so I do have the information now, but this does feel like an area that needs a fix. It would be good to be able to view and even manipulate our data to see how we might improve our energy usage, especially if we can monitor if we are becoming more efficient!
