Residential consumption and savings figures have been updated for 2016. League tables offer users a simple view ranking the difference amongst regions and highlighting the change on the previous year.

The tool tip surfaced by hovering over the data points (or clicking the data on a mobile device) provides additional information about the change in rank or value on the previous year.

Figure 2 shows the average residential savings for regional council regions. Bay of Plenty and Marlborough consumers stood to save more than other regions by switching retailers in 2016. Notes accompanying each report explain the assumptions in this analysis.

Thoughts on the reliability of the consumption change numbers? They're notably different from previous years. Do you have any idea what's behind the 5% drop in Southland?

Interesting to see the average residential consumption is typically less than 8000kWh p.a. which makes the Low user regulations look quite out of date.
