Are you a perfect 10? Find out with the SRP Energy Scorecard
Curious about how your energy usage stacks up against similar households?
The SRP Energy Scorecard program provides personalized energy usage feedback to randomly selected SRP residential customers. It's sent six times per year via mail or email and shows each household's energy consumption patterns and how their energy usage compares to that of similar homes.
Understanding how you consume energy can help you become more efficient, which could add up to big savings on your electric bill. The Energy Scorecard will help you see if you're using more energy than your neighbors in similar homes. Plus, each card offers tips to encourage immediate energy-saving actions. Even small changes can save you money.
Frequently asked questions about SRP Energy Scorecard
Participants were randomly selected. You are one of 100,000 residential customers to receive the Energy Scorecard as part of this pilot program to promote energy efficiency.
The similar-home comparison is based on the following variables, which are used to match a minimum of 40 similar homes:
- Same SRP price plan
- Similar square footage (based on County Assessor data)
- Same number of stories
- Pool or no pool
Your energy use changes often based on many factors, including some you can control and others you can't. These factors include:
- The weather – We recommend different heating and cooling strategies to help you stay comfortable in any weather while also saving energy and money. SRP also offers price plans to best fit your needs and help you save.
- The daily routine your household follows – This includes how often appliances, lighting, electronics and other devices in your home are used. Incorporating energy-saving behaviors into your everyday routine can go a long way toward saving energy and money. For example, do your laundry in cold water and run only full loads, and always turn off lights and fans in unoccupied rooms.
- The number of people living in your home and visitors – If your family grows, your energy bill will likely grow as well. However, there are still steps you can take to reduce energy use, including adjusting your daily routine as described above. Electricity usage will also increase if guests are staying at your home.
- New appliances and devices – Although replacing old devices with more efficient ones is a great way to save, adding more devices overall will increase your energy use. By selecting an ENERGY STAR® certified refrigerator, clothes washer, clothes dryer and dishwasher, you'll save more than $650 over the products' lifetimes, according to ENERGY STAR. Keeping your appliances maintained will also reduce the energy costs of operating them.
Your energy usage data is kept completely confidential, and the Energy Scorecard will not affect your bill, comfort or convenience in any way.
