Genability provides tools to gain insight into electricity usage. The Genability API is a RESTful interface to detailed, accurate and up-to-date tariff and energy pricing data. Search by zipcode and other criteria.
The API provides a fully functional tariff calculator that uses actual reading data to compute a tariff bill. Reading data can be stored within the APIs for quicker calculations.
Also, the API offers a way to find out current and look ahead pricing for a zipcode so you can intelligently determine when the cost of electricity will go up or down.
Although the API is not free, it offers low entry level rates. Rates are primarily based on the number of unique tariffs accessed per month.
The API can respond with JSON or JSONP formats.
There are helpful PHP, Rails and Java libraries on Github https://github.com/Genability

The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically, once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change. As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset, we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb. If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way, the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at email@example.com
So far, we don't have a record of any changes to this API
