Now you are ready to input the customer's electric bill. This will enable Aurora to estimate their load profile (an hourly profile of their energy usage) and accurately model the energy savings from designs you'll be creating.
Entering utility information
Navigate to your project and in the left side bar, click Consumption.
For the Utility Information, select the utility company, rate, and most recent utility rate version relevant to the project. In our case, we will be using:
- Utility Provider: Aurora Sample Training Utility
- Utility Rate: Aurora Sample Training Rate
- Utility Rate Version: Oct 2016 - Present
For Location, select Belmar Asc.
Entering electric bill information
Underneath the monthly graph, ensure "Energy" is selected and input energy (in kWh) for as many months as you can. We will be entering:
- Jan: 800
- May: 900
- Oct: 1,200
Aurora will interpolate the rest of the year for you.
If you only know the customer's bill amount, you can input that instead by clicking on Input Bill
