Since our Bulb Usage Dashboard page started showing daily usage, which was when we first moved onto Bulb’s Smart Tariff, I’ve been wondering why Bulb don’t provide more varied breakdowns of the Usage into Years, Months, Days.
Being able to see our daily usage overt the last 30 days is a nice feature, however, this does not provide any ability to compare individual months to one another which I think can be a better indicator of the effectiveness of a user’s changing electricity habits.
As we have solar, being able to see changing electricity usage between summer and winter is also rather important, and the best granularity for this would be a monthly breakdown.
Thinking back to just before moving to Bulb, SSE provided us with an annual, monthly, daily and hourly breakdown of our usage.
I would have thought that Bulb being the savvy tech start up would be keen to offer such a breakdown on their own website.
I also seem to remember that before Bulb started taking smart-meter readings from us, they were providing our usage breakdown as a monthly view only, which would seem to indicate that your system is capable of showing both a monthly break down and a daily break down. However, each breakdown is respectively segregated to users on manual readings and those on smart readings.
Furthermore, there is no usage comparison which would also be nice to have.
