Increasing Electric Use
My mom has been grumbling about her electric bill for a while now. They had a hot summer and that really set her off. :-) All electric home, oil, forced air heat. She lives alone and is frugal by nature so she isn't leaving lights on when she leaves. No new appliances, no changes in lifestyle.
I've tracked electrical usage over the last 34 months or so and it's increased by about 10 kW-h per day over that time period. There's the obvious increase in usage during the heating/cooling months and one obvious error on the part of the POCO but beyond that, there's a steady trend up with nothing to really explain it.
Any thoughts on where to look?
