Earth Notes: Saving Electricity and Gas (2020)Updated 2020-03-01 14:05 GMT.
Meter readings and energy-saving notes for dual fuel use at home in 2020.
Meter readings and analysis of our electricity and gas carbon footprint at home in 2020.
|Month||Consumed kWh (/d)||Generated -kWh (/d)||Consumed kWh (/d)||Period||Notes|
|2020-01||230 (7.4/d)||-63 (-2.0/d)||487 (16/d)||20191231T18:17Z to 20200131T18:15Z (31d)||Meter readings:
electricity generation 63.4kWh, export 13.1kWh, import 180.3kWh
(thus net consumption (I+G-E) 230.6kWh, self consumption ((N-I)/N) 22%);
gas ~43.7m^3 (so 487kWh @ 11.1kWh/m^3).
Unusually high electricity consumption possibly in part from extra use of dehumidifier in kids' bedrooms (which could really do with their own MHRV).
HDD12=142 vs 218 last January. (Warmest Jan since 2008.)
|2020-02||197 (6.8/d)||-127 (-4.4/d)||434 (15/d)||20200131T18:15Z to 20200229T18:15Z (29d)||Meter readings:
electricity generation 129.9kWh, export 49.9kWh, import 120.1kWh
(thus net consumption (I+G-E) 197.1kWh, self consumption ((N-I)/N) 39%);
gas ~39.1m^3 (so 434kWh @ 11.1kWh/m^3).
High electricity consumption possibly in part from extra use of dehumidifier in kids' bedrooms again.
HDD12=128 vs 132 last February. (Warmest Feb since 2008 barring 2014.)
