With the advent of technology and internet, many industries are getting reformed and adapting to the latest technology. For example, almost majority of the people in the world are communicating with their friends and family using a mobile phone. Traditional landlines have become obsolete. Because of the high-speed internet, users are moving towards online streaming subscription services to watch the latest content instead of the traditional dish based TV channel providers.
So, the energy consumption of a household is getting increased every year and they are paying high energy bills as they don't have the freedom to change their energy providers. Even though many systems are upgraded to the latest technology, the format of your monthly energy statements remains the same. Can you get an estimate of the average daily consumption from your utility bill? Does your utility provide an Android or iOS app? The answer will be most likely a 'No'. Because most of the utilities provide only the information about the total energy consumption for that month and the bill amount that needs to be paid. It doesn't provide any other metrics about the daily consumption.
