Usage and Spend Alerts

On the ‘Set Usage and Spend Alerts’ page under My Reporting Tools, you can monitor your monthly usage and energy spend by tracking the differences in your utility meter reads. When your usage or spend varies from the previous meter read by a specific percentage that you set, MyAccount sends you an email alert notifying you of the variance. To set this alert:

  • Select the meter read variance percentage that will trigger an alert to be sent.
  • Select the accounts you would like to monitor with the usage and spend alert.
  • Click “Save Usage & Spend Alert Preferences” to set your alert.


Note: if you have more than one customer in MyAccount, you will have to select the customer you want the alert for on the Set ‘Usage and Spend Alerts’ page.


Market Alerts

On the 'Set Market Alerts' page under My Reporting Tools, you can monitor natural gas price movement (based on NYMEX settlements at Henry Hub), along with several regional electricity price indices and receive an alert(s) when the commodity price move above or below your specified levels. When you set a Market Alert, if the market price (of whichever price index/indices) exceeds the high/low set price you designate, you will receive an email and a message on the ‘Read Messages’ page under My Preferences. To set this alert:

  • Click ‘New Alert’ on the 'Set Market Alerts' page.
  • On the 'New Alert' page, which contains multiple options for the type of energy market you can monitor, fill in your criteria for the alert.
  • Click "Save" to set your Market Alert.
