    Not trying to keep nagging but I’m taking PDD next week so it’d be great to know before then. Thanks!

    I did pass!! Feels great to be done, but I've still had this question in the back of my mind. By any chance do you have a resource that explains the practical use of this formula? I wasn't able to find any and would be curious to see how it's used.

    ^This website helped me to understand how heating degree days relates to BTU's hour which relates to kWh. I think of BTU's per hour in terms of heat flow (not necessarily power) and kWh in terms of the amount of energy required to support such heat flow, if that makes sense.
