What is Green Button?
Green Button gives you easy and secure access to your personal energy usage data. By using Green Button you can download your energy usage data to gain better insight on how you use energy. You can download your energy usage monthly, daily, hourly over a time frame you specify—up to 14 months! After downloading your usage data, you can view it in your internet browser, or upload it to any third party site that supports Green Button data analysis.
How do I use my data?
After you download your zipped usage data file, you can extract and view the file in a Web browser, or you can upload your data to any third party site that supports Green Button data analysis. Members can easily retrieve consumption data in a consistent format, giving you the information and insight into your usage and efficiency. Reviewing your energy usage information gives you detailed information and the opportunity to recognize usage patterns.
