Nueces Electric Cooperative now has Power Usage Alerts that you can set to notify you when your energy usage exceeds maximum or does not meet minimum thresholds you set for your meter. These alerts will be sent by email to the account you specify when you set them up.
At the present time, these alerts will be sent about 12:00 noon the day after the usage threshold was exceeded. This message will contain the period(s) in which the threshold was exceeded or not met and the usage for the period.
You can set up thresholds for hourly usage as well as total usage for the entire day.
To set up power usage alerts, you will need to log in to your SmartHub account through a web browser. The mobile app cannot be used to set these up, but you can remove them through the mobile app. (The mobile app is a quick easy way to pay your bill and check your usage.)
Click on “My Usage” then on “Usage Explorer” and it should open to a graph that looks similar to the one below:
