2020-01 230 (7.4/d) -63 (-2.0/d) 487 (16/d) 20191231T18:17Z to 20200131T18:15Z (31d) Meter readings: electricity generation 63.4kWh, export 13.1kWh, import 180.3kWh (thus net consumption (I+G-E) 230.6kWh, self consumption ((N-I)/N) 22%); gas ~43.7m^3 (so 487kWh @ 11.1kWh/m^3).
Unusually high electricity consumption possibly in part from extra use of dehumidifier in kids' bedrooms (which could really do with their own MHRV).
