DTE Smart Meter data --- new website today.
Prior to today the DTE Smart Meter website for my account was reasonably good and useful, and I have previously discussed it.
Today I encountered a whole new and virtually useless structure and limited availablity of data. Appears to be no more hourly data, only daily data. This is of no value if one wants to study their energy use, and try to determine what loads are significant contributors. In a sense the available data has been "dumbed" down.
The structure of the site is not intutitively obvious, and there are too many different questions that lead from one unknown step to another. You don't know where you are going until you select something and go there. No adequate definitions or descriptions of anything. This was written by some person inexperienced in the real world and technology. It falls in the category of some of the worst websites around. It is also very slow.
Essentially all of the previous graph types were removed, except a form of daily use is retained (kWh per day). A cumulative use per calendar month (about 28 to 31+ days) has been added. Rezeroing is at the beginning day of the billing period. Sept 28 thru Nov 2 shows on my displayed graph. But there can not be a Nov 2 bar because we have not reached the end of the day yet.
A few changes were needed to improve the old site, but this new site is a very bad regression, a disaster.
There is no better way to describe this new site other than to call it useless, a total waste.
