EC Express: Adding A Meter

Adding a Meter

All utility bills are tracked under a meter, and every meter must belong to a utility account.  This mandatory structure mimics most utility bills and standardizes reporting and viewing of data.  Bills must be tracked under a meter even when no physical meter exists (examples:  trash, sewer). 

Since every meter must belong to an account, the best way to create a meter is to click on the Main Menu, then Accounts. Then use the "+" button in the lower left below the Accounts tree.

However, for your convenience, EnergyCAP also allows you to create a new meter from Buildings & Meters.  Click on the "+" button at the bottom of the tree.

The Building/Organization Wizard will launch.  On the first screen you will be asked which type of “node” you want to add to your Buildings & Meters tree.  Select the third option, "Add a new Meter" to begin the process of adding a new meter to your data. 

Remember, every meter in EnergyCAP needs to be associated with a billing account and a vendor.  Therefore, setting up the account/meter is usually easiest if you have a current bill in hand to gather the necessary information from it.
