The objective of our project is the prediction of the electric power consumption in Humboldt County for 2017. Load is the amount of power that is being drawn from the electrical grid due to residential, industrial, and commercial practices. Forecasting load is used to predict future electrical power that is required to meet the short-term (weekly), medium-term (monthly), and long-term (yearly) demand of a power grid. We have created a linear regression analysis with a moving window to predict energy use for the next hour. Our work produced a mathematical model that uses past data to achieve an efficient strategy for forecasting electricity loads.
