A guilty data mining pleasure

This may not be highbrow, but it sure is interesting to grab smart meter readings (from one’s utility or, in our case,  https://www.smartmetertexas.com/) and cross-referencing it with weather data from the nearest NOAA station. The near-perfect correlation between daily usage and maximum temperature won’t surprise anyone, but the weird outlier days make me wonder what additional factor I should take into account...

Also, I need to figure out what time to set the EV charger for to best balance out our power usage (at a glance, any time outside of 4pm-midnight).

These are my opinions only. They are not those of my employer..
