Three clusters were identified by CA, and this was followed by the construction of MLR models for each cluster. Obtained statistics and MLR results are presented in Table 4 for average monthly consumption (Qm). Presented MLR models were the best-fitted ones after autocorrelation and cross-correlation analysis, and serial correlation of error term tests.

C−1 – average consumption in the previous month (L/(customer.month)); T−1 – average temperature in the previous month (°C); T0 – average temperature of the current month (°C); R0 – rainfall of the current month (mm).
