Am I losing my mind or I just saved myself $1000 per year by identifying a constant usage with your fantastic device?
I’m a little bit confused about how the IotaWatt reports the usage.
I’m getting the data in 5 seconds interval and I sum the results through InfluxDB2 for an aggregate window of 1 minute and I’m getting these results:
I could see a constant usage of about 15watts that I couldn’t explain. I switched off a charger in my garage and the usage dropped below 3 watts which makes sense considering the garage opener.
so If I could save 10watts per minute, does this mean that I saved 0.6kw per hour?
If yes then that translates to over 5000Kw per year which I assume means 5000KwH per year.
Does this make sense or I’m making incorrect assumptions or calculations?
