SmartHub, ECI REC’s online program that allows members to access their account information from their computer or smartphone, recently rolled out several new tools. In addition to the option of making payments online, members are now able to easily view monthly electricity usage. Members do not need to pay their bills through SmartHub in order to access their usage data. The charts below show some of the information you can access on SmartHub.
A free phone app can be downloaded from iTunes or the Android app store, so you can access your account 24/7 (see right).
MONTHLY BILLED USAGE (below) - This graph was created with the Usage Explorer tool to show monthly usage over the course of a year. The green bars are the monthly usage, while the black line shows the temperature. When you are logged in to SmartHub, hovering over the bars and line with your mouse will show exact data points.
MONTHLY BILLED USAGE,TWO METERS (below) - It is possible to view information for two different meters with the Usage Explorer tool. The yellow bars represent heat meter usage, which is why there is no data for the summer months. You also have the option of showing the high and low temperature lines.
BILL COMPARISON (below) - This tool allows you to compare your usage and costs from one year to the next. If your bill for one month is higher than the previous year’s, check the temperature data—a higher or lower temperature may have caused you to use more electricity heating or cooling your home.
ENERGY USE ANALYSIS (below) - The Analysis tool allows you to view average energy usage over several years or more.
