I have just had a smart meter installed and I am trying to download the data. My meter is set to send Â½ hour readings. I can see the data (with a few missing days early on) at a daily level but I cannot see the hourly readings. Whilst I can see the readings I cannot download them as data ie CSV.
NB I have aÂ smart meter installed in an overseas property and can download hourly readings as a CSV file. This helps when assessing whether to switch Time-Of-DayÂ charging. With Scottish Power I'm trying to work out what items are using the power.
Hi @DHogg welcome to the Community! At the moment Smart Meter data is just available to view online, however we are in the early days of the Smart Meter rollout and planning more advanced account features that will allow you to get more insight into your consumption like you have suggested. If we have any trials or prototypes related to this coming up would you be interested in taking part? We would love to get your feedback!
Also this article may explain why you are missing a few days of readings if maybe you changed the frequency to half hourly?
I realise this post is 5 months old, has there been any progress in allowing us to download smart meter usage data in CSV format?
Currently you can only download the bill period usage data but you cant download the data from the smart meter usage information which is broken down to daily usage.
Is there any progress with this. I can't trust Scottish Power to adjust my Direct Debit to the correct amount, so I've cancelled my DD and want to manage it weekly myself. But to do this effectively, I need the daily usage.
@aSystemOverload They're fond of doing that, arn't they - the online DD manager is a joke. I used to use that all the time but they changed the program on it so that you had to make a one-off payment to reduce your DD. I once tried to lower my DD by 84 pence for one month, and the system required a one-off payment of £200 to let me do it!!
What people can do, and always used to work, was to submit up-to-date EXTRA meter readings IMMEDIATELY after a monthly DD had been taken - definitely within a couple days. This use to fool the system into thinking your balance was high, in proportion to that day or two's usage, and drop the DD dramatically for the following month. You could do that at least three or four months in a row to drop your DD below your boots.
Used to work. Dont know if it still does,,,
