TrueCost uses your smart meter data to build the most precise rate comparision tool
available, which saves you money.
We also believe your meter data can be useful for saving money on your electric bill by helping you reduce consumption in smart ways, so we also offer our online, interactive meter data viewer
. If you haven't tried it yet, it's fun for spotting longer-term trends

Do you want to follow your data?
If you've already set up your TrueCost profile to receive your data, simply check the box on your My Account page to turn the email on. It looks like this:
If you already have a profile but don't have the meter data flowing yet, you can do that here (login required). Then from your My Account page, you can sign up for the email.
If you need help, just let us know by phone, email, or chat..
