Utility Information

The study team should secure monthly bills, including electricity, fuel, waste disposal, water, and sewer, for the most recent two year period. In addition to offering an aggregate picture of use and seasonal variation, a review of the bills may uncover inconsistencies, such as multiple billings or seemingly inappropriate rates. Further examination and clarification may reveal important limitations, such as an inability to combine electrical services or delivery capacity constraints. Computerized records of daily, hourly, or 15 minute demand and consumption may also be available from the electric or gas utility; they provide a deeper picture of load shape and variation patterns. The utility information compiled during this step provides the basis for on-going load analysis and aggregation work required to fully develop an integrated approach. Where available, internal submeter readings will be collected. These can provide load and consumption information for sub-units, such as kitchens, boilers, chillers, cooling towers, or process equipment.
