Title: SYSTEMS FOR REAL-TIME ANALYSIS AND REPORTING OF UTILITY USAGE AND SPEND
Abstract:
Methods and systems universally assess composite utility consumption in which a plurality of real-time and batch sensor readings are acquired and stored. A composite utility estimated cost generator can generate missing data and a collected composite utility data information correlator can correlate the data to determine composite utility cost information. A disparate utility rate information accessor obtains disparate rate information for use with correlated data to create a composite utility consumption and spend so a user can manage and control utility usage. Cost information may be presented to user in a variety of visualizations and reporting formats including time usage and spend information, time range usage and spend, and "time-of-use" billing information. The visualization and reporting may be used to answer a plurality of usage questions along with specific characterizations of utility spend across time of day domains and specific equipment usage domains thus affording more effective utility cost management.
