Understanding how and where we use energy is important in identifying ways to save energy. That’s why Ausgrid measures and analyses the electricity use by everything from individual appliances such as refrigerators and hot water heaters to entire households and local government areas.
Studying energy use trends can help in identifying ways to save on bills, devising improved demand management solutions, and informing policy makers when developing new programs to manage energy and greenhouse.
We regularly share electricity use data by local government areas supplied by Ausgrid. You can see this on a map or download the data here.
Reports and summaries from our investigations are available below.
