  • Energy Cost Calculation Errors

    I am trying to figure out where HS3 is getting the value for the cost/KWH for some of the calculations. I put the value in the "Set Up" (see below) as $.1187. However, on the energy page, the calculated numbers circled in red are using a different value (roughly 4 to 5 times higher). Any thoughts?

    The energy API has it's fair share of bugs unfortunately and is not a polished implementation, whilst I can't help I would as a check whether that value is being used at all multiple the value by ten (1.187 say) and then see whether or not the the page calculates them at 40-50 times the value (that would indicate whether or not the value was being used at all). It could be an error in the logged data and I would say if that is the case then it may be worthwhile deleting your energy database and starting again.
