I'm with you now. Thank you for the explanation. Sounds like the Sense Energy might be the right solution to my problem. The remaining portion of electrical usage attributed to the cost to cool my home seems more reasonable. Hopefully the Sense Energy monitor can help me figure out what's going on. I can't imagine what would be using that amount of electricity. Brand new home, LED bulbs, Gas Range, "free" hot water from the geo. I don't have day by day breakdown for earlier months before i was in "cooling" mode, but i do know my monthly usage for January, February, March time. Could that data be further used to validate this "base load" of usage?
