Cannot get below my forecasts
I am having sporadic issues with the PGE forecasts being completely unrealistic. For example: this last week I was forecast for a level of use that would have required me to unplug literally everything in my house except for my lights. I unplugged all of my big energy user (chest freezer, mini hot tub, fridge, TVs, fans), did not run any water (electric well pump), and literally left the house when no lights on. The only thing on was two portable air purifiers and the clocks on the oven and microwave. How in the world am I supposed to get under forecast? This keeps happening and Ohm customer service tells me the forecasts are realistic and the meter readings are accurate (although I've now had two ohm hour results switch from over forecast to under). Where do I even start? PG&E? Just stop taking it personally? Drop out altogether? It's so frustrating to "go over forecast" in my tiny house when my energy guzzling neighbors in their mcmansions just have to unplug a few appliances and stop charging their cars.
