True gap: is a reading gap that is surrounded by data, i.e. there is at least one meter reading preceding the gap, and at least one meter reading following the gap. If a meter’s time series has multiple gaps, Measurabl estimates them separately, and does not use the estimated data to make further estimates.
Electric Gap Estimates Logic

All the meter readings are calendarized by computing the average daily usage. This gives Measurabl a usage value for each day of the meter's active lifespan for use in calculating estimates and assigning usage to a calendar month within readings that include days from more than one calendar month. Days without usage are labeled as NaNs.

Calculate the following metrics for each meter’s usage:

left_mean: the 30day average usage preceding the gap

left_mean_last_year: the 30day average usage preceding the gap start date minus 1 year

right_mean: the 30day average usage following the gap

right_mean_last_year: the 30day average usage following the gap end date minus 1 year

left_mean_1yr: the 365day average usage preceding the gap start date

mean_gap_last_year: the mean usage in the gap period from last year

gap_length: the length of the gap in days

 Fill in the gap according to the following logic:

if gap_length <= 180:

Interpolate linearly between the usage in the days surrounding the gap. This is equivalent to filling in the missing daily usages with the average between the usage in the days surrounding the gap, in terms of total usage for the gap period.

Else, Utilize computed metrics in step 2 and leverage proprietary logic to fill in the gap
