What kinds of data can you get from the API?
Where do you get your data from?
How often is the data updated? How relevant is the data I am seeing?
Do you have historical data as well as live and forecast data?
How do you make your calculations? I’d like to learn more about your methodology.
So what is “marginal” anyways?
[X region] isn’t showing any data on the electricityMap - why?
How much does the electricityMap API cost?

Do you offer any discounts?
Can you give me a quote?
Can I pay up front/quarterly instead of monthly?
