Hopefully someone can help.
When I was with Scottish power, I could input as many daily readings as I wanted and it would show me what my daily usage was for 2 rates of elect and also gas, which i thought was useful.
Sadly since moving to EDF via bulb and having smart meters I dont have the useful info (ihd doesnt work properly yet).
Does anyone have an Excel sheet that, they could share, they use for an easy input and read.

    No replies so here’s what I do / use. I’ve got an iPad app that lets me enter as many meter readings as I like. Been doing this for a good few years now, so have quite a history of not only gas, electric, water and solar generation but also that of a couple of family members too.

    As I have a standard meter, my spreadsheet would be of no use to you.  Also, not rich enough for MS Office, I have to make do with Libre Office.

    It’s called ‘Meters’ ( original huh?) but just checked the support page and the author makes a big point of saying there isn’t an Android version. There’s bound to be something similar or better, no doubt an Android user will be along to advise. A Spreadsheet will do exactly the same job but this just works, sadly IOS only though.

    Sounds like a nice weekend project to learn how to create one yourself.
