How do I track my electricity usage data with my smart meter?
If you’ve selected Interval (30 minute) Smart Services, you’ll have access to a full breakdown of your usage data through your My SSE Airtricity online account. Your breakdown will be available for you to view the next day and will be updated daily. This will provide you with “at a glance” information about how you are using electricity.
This will help you make more informed choices so you can start to shift your daily energy usage to times of the day where energy costs are lower. You can also get an idea of how much electricity different appliances are using by seeing your 30-minute usage breakdown.
If you select Non-Interval (Bi-Monthly) Smart Services, or if this is the only option available to you, you won’t be able to see your 30 minute usage breakdown, but we will receive your read once every two months. This will reduce the need for manual meter reads and will help keep your bills more accurate. You will also be able to view your Day, Night and Peak reads on your bills giving you a more insightful view of your electricity usage compared with standard non-smart meters.
