Demand Heat Map

November 11, 2014

Opower posted a heat map of hourly electricity demand that I wanted to replicate for our data.

This makes changes in hourly trends over the course of the year readily apparent, and even highlights differences day to day. The 6am/7am peak is pretty clear, as are the evening hours in the summer. Between midnight a 4am, the usage is clearly higher (deeper yellow) in the summer as well due to AC load.
