Snapmeter’s ease of use and powerful analytics now extend to natural gas data to help spot richer efficiency opportunities
As with electricity, we gather gas use and billing data directly from your online utility account. There’s nothing for you to install or configure in your building. An increasing number of utilities are making daily or even hourly gas readings available online. You’ll see these new features in Snapmeter if gas data is available and once it’s flowing for your account.
How to show gas data on the interactive load curve chart

Bill history and variance reports
To review your natural gas bills in Snapmeter, first select a gas meter and navigate to the Bills section of Energy costs. Here you’ll find a chart of each month’s cost for as much data as is available in your account, and summary trailing twelve-month spend, use, and average $/thm metrics. A year-on-year variance summary is calculated for each month across weather, rate, and operational drivers.
