So my power use is high. 35 kwh per day with no heat, all electric house, no well pump. We called the power company and they (without notice or telling us) swapped the meter to a nice, new, digital version and I am logging data. Here's the question. My base load with nobody home for 24 hours is 12 kwh. How does that compare with your base load? Temps outside are in the 60s and the only thing running is the water heater, hot tub, fridge, and freezer. Yes, I have a hot tub. It was made within the last 10 years and even when shut off for two months every summer, our power bill remains nearly the same.
