MyMeter, our secure online site for viewing your electricity use, will show you when you’re using the least and most amounts of electricity. “MyMeter is free, and signing up is easy– simply go to our website clpud.org, click on the “MyMeter” photo in the middle of your computer screen, and follow the prompts,” recommends our Energy Services Administrator, Wade Carey. “You can compare your use to daily average temperatures, your previous year’s consumption, or to other customers in your rate classification – not individually, but in an aggregated average.”
Under “Communication Options” you can set up alerts for high or low use, and receive texts or emails letting you know when your use exceeds those targets. MyMeter data can also be exported to one’s computer. Wade cautions MyMeter does not estimate bills: “It focuses on electricity use on a monthly basis, and our customers’ billing cycles are not set in calendar months.”If you sign up for MyMeter and have questions, Wade will be happy to help–email him at email@example.com, call him at 541-574-2068, or see his MyMeter demonstrations at the Florence Home and Garden Show March 6th-8th.
