Earth Notes: Saving Electricity and Gas (2018)
Meter readings and energy-saving comments for our dual fuel use in 2018.
|Month||Consumed kWh (/d)||Generated -kWh (/d)||Consumed kWh (/d)||Period||Notes|
|2018/01||214 (6.9/d)||-62 (-2.0/d)||585 (19/d)||20171231-18:45-GMT to 20180131-19:19-GMT (31d)||Meter readings:
electricity generation 61.9kWh, export 35.3kWh, import 187.1kWh
(thus net consumption (I+G-E) 213.5kWh);
gas ~52.7m^3 (so 585kWh @ 11.1kWh/m^3).
"SmartThings" sensors to cross-calibrate OpenTRV devices draw ~10W, thus add ~0.25kWh/d to gross electricity consumption.
HDD12=166 vs 248 last January.
|2018/02||186 (6.6/d)||-104 (-3.7/d)||746 (28/d)||20180131-19:19-GMT to 20180228-18:32-GMT (28d)||Meter readings:
electricity generation 146.6kWh, export 104.4kWh, import 143.8kWh
(thus net consumption (I+G-E) 186.0kWh);
gas ~67.2m^3 (so 746kWh @ 11.1kWh/m^3).
This has been the coldest February (in terms of HDD) that I have observed at 16WW.
HDD12=237 vs 139 last February.
2018/02: this is the coldest February here at 16WW while I've monitoring, but nowhere near the highest gas use, thanks to insulation and to Radbot/OpenTRV!
