The difference between common one hour, whole-home energy data and Pecan Street’s high frequency, disaggregated data is dramatic. 

Consider the following comparison. The first chart shows whole home, one-hour energy data between 5pm and midnight – the kind of data readily available from advanced electric meters.

The  second chart shows energy use in a home in Pecan Street’s research network on the same day. For this home, data was collected every minute from multiple circuits in the home, giving an incredible minute-by-minute understanding of when — and how — electricity was used.

To learn more about what types of Pecan Street data are available, please download the Dataport Metadata document, which shows what types of data are available from each individual home (Data ID) within the Dataport database and the date ranges of available data, and the Metadata Data Dictionary, which provides additional detail.
