Sum sensor -> Utility sensor in Energy Dashboard

Hi guys,

I have created a sum sensor which gets all the energy consumption states from various sensors and summarize them to one. The state_class is “Total Increasing”. The problem with this sensor is that doesn’t contain historical data. I found another post (Don't get the count right for historical data of sensor.power_production) and the suggestion was to use a utility sensor fed with this data.
The question is:
For usage in the Energy Dashboard as Grid Consumption, the cycle should be daily or something else?
