Why is my electricity consumption so high?
In EnergyID, we calculate your electricity consumption according to this simple formula:
Total consumption = Offtake from the grid + Local production - Injection to the grid
If you have solar panels or a CHP, your electricity consumption may not correspond to the figures on your invoice or on the network operator's portal. After all, they only measure net grid offtake.
In order to monitor your consumption and quantify your savings, EnergyID also takes into account your self-consumption, which is the part of the local produced electricity that you consume yourself.
Also for comparing your electricity consumption with similar profiles, it is important to take into account all related energy flows in your home or building.
