The half hourly usage shows that on Thursday I used 3.16 units between 7am and 5pm, and on Friday I use 2.95 units.
Note that because we have showers at 6am and 6pm the water heater has finished by 7am so it's just maintaining temperature during the day. I only see small blips, plus the constant ticking over of things like the fridge. I can see 4-5 units used between 6 and 7am. Most of our power use is 6-7am and 6-10pm.
Thanks for those readings, thats really usefull . Thanks a lot !!
Tells me that standby should be averaging 2-3kwh , whereas I am now averaging around 20kwh .
If you dont mind , while you are here , can you also check what is the power consumtion when everyone is sleeping ( ie again, no one is using hot water ) between hrs of 10/11pm to 6am morning.
This will again cement my findings that standby power usage should be in the 2-3 kwh range.
