I installed the Vue with expansion yesterday and everything seems to be working A-OK. I just need to know more about the “Savings” page on the App. How are the numbers presented calculated? What can I do to affect them? I already have smart thermostats, LED lighting, and smart outlets, how do I indicate that? Thanks!
Welcome to the Emporia Forum! Thanks for your inquiry about our savings page.
Emporia holds aspirations of helping our customers save up to 50% on their energy costs through various strategies. You can read more about that at https://emporiaenergy.com/save-energy/. This starts by engaging customers with their energy usage through the Vue as well as presenting them with other energy savings opportunities.
As far as the current values in the app, the Lifetime Savings represents 5% of your usage (totaled across all of your Vues, if you have more than one), which is an estimate of what a conscientious energy-minded consumer using the Vue might save according to studies outlined in this post: https://emporiaenergy.com/benefits-real-time-energy-data/. The other numbers are simply what the average US household would save employing the savings strategies listed on the page. At this time, there is not a way to indicate that you have implemented these savings or impact the savings.
Admittedly, the Savings page is still a work in progress and probably a little frustrating. We apologize. We still want to help our customers reach these lofty savings goals and are working hard to make the Savings page more dynamic, interactive, and tailored to your specific experience in the near future.
