Log into Account Manager at tep.com and discover all the ways you can save energy and money by viewing a customizable home energy report online.

In the reports, you can see your current energy use compared to approximately 100 nearby, occupied homes with similar characteristics such as square footage and fuel types. These homes represent your neighbors, but do not necessarily include the homes on your block or in your immediate neighborhood. These comparisons, along with personalized energy saving tips, can help you better understand how you use energy.
The comparisons and tips in your reports are personalized for you by using publicly available information about your home size, home type and other characteristics. We only use your information to provide useful insights about your energy use. Your information is compiled anonymously and not shared with any of your neighbors. Only you can see your personal data.
New participants may view their customizable home energy report by logging into Account Manager through tep.com and clicking the home energy report icon.
Your energy use is being compared to the usage patterns of a group of about 100 neighbors whose homes are close to yours and similar in size.
To provide valid comparisons, we've chosen specific homes that are nearby and have characteristics that typically lead to similar energy needs, such as home size and heating source. We only include homes that appear to be occupied at the time of the comparison.
Our goal is to provide you with a comparison that is valid and meaningful. Currently, our report comparisons include 100 similar, nearby, occupied homes, and our research shows that for almost all residents this 100-home average is a good indication of typical usage. However, there are some factors for which we don’t account, such as the number of occupants in the home and special loads like hot tubs and swimming pools. We are currently working on new features that will allow you to provide additional information, which we will use to enhance your neighbor comparison.
It's understandable that some people may have life or housing circumstances that make it difficult to reduce their home's energy use. We aim to provide a wide range of ideas that can address the various needs of our customers and their homes. We encourage you to find out which tips are best for you and search for more ideas. In some cases, you may not be able to realize substantial savings, but we've found that most people can realize at least some savings and we hope we can help you do so.
Efficient households likely take a variety of steps to reduce their electric use, including using the thermostat to manage heating and cooling costs, turning off lights and electronics when not in use and always running full loads in the dishwasher, washer and dryer. The reports provide actionable steps that you can take to help you make your home more efficient.
The square footage of your home that we use in the Home Energy Report is based on data that is collected from your county assessor's office about your home.
