Why your Bill and Green Button Data are important.
A recent bill along with your Green Button Data provides a highly-detailed view of your electrical use broken down by hour or quarter-hour increments. This level of granularity allows Baker to see your exact electrical use patterns and build a custom home energy system around it. Most utility bills that you receive online or by mail contain a general summary of your electrical use on a month by month basis. In some cases, this level of detail is sufficient to design your solar system. But due to upcoming changes in how the utility charges for electricity, a look at your detailed energy use provided by Green Button Data, may be required to determine the best Solar solution.
