Utility and Sub-Metering- the Value of the Data
All customers will have a utility/revenue meter at their facility which can be used to acquire valuable data to help manage your energy usage. This is helpful, but are you getting the most you can. In addition to the utility meter, sub-metering can be installed throughout your facility. This adds value by allowing for more granular data collection. In this session we will briefly look at using the data from both to manage your energy needs.
