As technologies advance and the population grows, electrical energy became one of the necessities for many peoples. Because the availability of electrical energy is limited, it requires various ways to be used efficiently. Electrical load monitoring usage in Indonesia still require an electrical officer to come to an electric panel location to record electrical usage. During the COVID-19 pandemic, it is not feasible to locally visit an electric panel because of the many restrictions. Remote monitoring using Internet of Things (IoT) can be used to address the problem. Going further, by knowing the electrical load usage, prediction can be done using fuzzy logic as a way to understand how to use electricity efficiently. Thus, a fuzzy logic load forecasting system IoT is developed in this research. Fuzzy variables used in this system are time of day, days of the week, measured loads, and forecasted loads. The research produced a system that predicts electrical load with one hour of accuracy based on the previous week's data. The average prediction error rate of the system is 9.48%. The implemented system is available on a web server and can be accessed via a web browser, either via a computer or cellphone. The system allows users to monitor and predict electrical load usage regardless of time and place.
