The U.S. Department of Energy, through the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, operates the Tariff Analysis Project (TAP) - a comprehensive data warehouse of utility tariffs and query tools designed to accurately calculate utility bills. TAP consists of a library of tariffs that, in conjunction with their SOAP API, allows users to calculate their actual energy costs and saving based on actual tariffs, rather than estimates.
There are several search/data retrieval methods in the TAP API that allow users to get utility data (by ZIP code or state), tariff listings, and tariff descriptions. This data can be used in conjunction with the bill calculation method to calculate a detailed projection of monthly utility costs.
This free API is provided over SOAP, and requires users to register their I.P. through the provider's site to gain access to the service.
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.
