Why Can't I Rename Individual Devices in the Energy Dashboard?

I have a few smart plugs that provide kWh consumption for any device plugged into them (Tasmota MQTT).
I have them named appropriately as ‘smart_plug_1’, ‘smart_plug_2’ etc. in my configuration.yaml.
I can rename them to say ‘TV’ or ‘PC’ in a Lovelace card, for easy identification of whatever device is currently plugged in. But I can’t do this in the Energy Dashboard.

Please add this feature so I can track them using more the more relevant names, without having to then alter the yaml every time I decide to plug a different device in.


As a user, I would like to edit the names shown for Monitor Individual Devices so that they display properly on a narrow screen or mobile device.
