How much electricity is it per click? The sad case of the smart meter and dumb limit

Today we were having a discussion about our power usage. Our hydro co offers an online viewing and some smart meter real-ish time data (yesterdays data by hour).

So I clicked today. then yesterday. When I got to 5 days ago, I got this. My excessive use (5 clicks!). I am over their terms of usage (not TOU as in Time-Of-Use, which is all i can find on their site on the topic). Boo, how am i supposed to understand the details? If only there were other products to measure electricity... Like eyedro you ask?

Anyone care to chip in on what 'normal' usage would be if 5 page load of a day is excessive?

How many API calls is excessive?
