Why is real-time usage data beneficial?

Better data on usage allows the appropriate match of electric equipment sizing for the service area.   This is especially helpful with the current industry shortage of electric materials.  Properly sized equipment creates a balanced circuit and extends the life of electric equipment.  Real-time usage data also can assist customer service in identifying the date and time an increase or decrease in electricity usage occurred on a customer account when a customer inquires about their electric bill.
