In deregulated markets, buildings can have separate energy accounts for generation and distribution. Flagging a utility account as "generation" prevents usage data from being duplicated in ENERGY STAR, but preserves total production cost within Measurabl and ENERGY STAR®. This article shows how to flag a utility sync account as 'generation'.
ENROLLING A GENERATION UTILITY SYNC ACCOUNT:
- To make a Utility Sync account a generation account, you will first need to enroll the account number(s), following the normal steps here.
- Once the account is enrolled, click on the site/account card in Utility Sync.
- Scroll down to the 'Accounts' table, and click on the ellipsis to the right of the account number > Mark as Generation Account.
- This pop up will appear, and you can select Mark as Generation Account or cancel.
Congrats! Your account's duplicative usage data is now omitted from Measurabl and ENERGY STAR®. It may take up to 24 hours for the updated figures to appear.
What if my utility bill accounts for both distribution and generation costs?
No need to mark these types of accounts as a generation account in Measurabl, we'll take care of it.
How will this change my meters in ENERGY STAR®?
After marking the generation account in Measurabl, the corresponding meters in ENERGY STAR® will reflect zero usage, but maintain consumption costs.
