SmartHub, ECI REC’s online program that allows members to access their account information from a computer or smartphone, offers a dynamic My Usage section with many tools to analyze your past and current energy usage, as well as plan and conserve in the future.
Compare your energy use and costs, set markers to monitor changes in your usage from the Analyze Your Usage tab, and get energy-saving tips from the Explore Usage Management tab. One of the most useful features is the Home Energy Calculator, which allows you to perform a free self-energy audit: go to My Usage, click on Usage Management, then click on the blue “Get Started” arrow and your actual ECI REC energy usage will automatically upload into the Home Energy Calculator so you can complete an analysis of your home’s energy usage.
Members do not need to pay their bills through SmartHub in order to access their usage data, but registration is necessary. A free phone app can be downloaded from iTunes or the Android app store, so you can access your account 24/7; links to these downloads can be found on the SmartHub home page.
Other SmartHub features include:
- ECI REC Outage Map link
- Electronic bill inserts
- Online bill payment
- Detailed billing charts including month-to-month and year-to-year comparisons and temperature data
