How do I find out how much I pay for electricity?
Consumption data can be helpful when understanding how much electricity has been used at your residence for specific time frames and when looking for trends.
This information should be itemized on your electric bill, but if there is something you don’t understand or if you would like usage data for previous months or years, you should reach out to your electricity provider.
You can also acquire your consumption data from Texas Smart Metering Their website allows you to register at their website for the purpose of downloading up to 18 months of retroactive utility consumption data via Excel or .csv format.
Note, you’ll need your ESIID number from your utility bill in order to register. Here are the FAQs on their website: https://www.smartmetertexas.com/CAP/public/home/home_faq.html
