  1. I was able to set up my home in your system, and when I downloaded my xml file, I received an error message. This is probably me, not you, since I only have two months of smart meter data, and Dominion has a weird format apparently (According to Leafully). Two comments: In the questions section, I was asked how many dryers I had, but the biggest factor effecting my energy use for clothes drying is the fuel (which is gas). I was also asked how LEDs I have, and answered 47, but the real question is how many incandescents do you have. Every lightbulb in my house is either a CFL or LED, so no actionable data could be obtained with that question.

  2. Very nice presentation though. I would like to use the program when I get enough xml data recorded with my new TOU rate tariff.

    Thanks for the feedback, the program requires that you download your last 12 months of green button data, does your utility provide that amount of data? I can send you a user id and password so you can explore the application. I would welcome additional feedback on the app.
