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 how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
