Currently you can download your electricity use and cost data from Portfolio Manager in “Green Button” format. You access this feature, called “Download My Data,” from the Energy tab, by selecting View/Edit Meter Consumption for your electric meter (you have to download one meter at a time). You will get a copy of your electricity data in “Green Button” format, which is an XML file. At this time, the only type of energy that you can download is electricity data (not natural gas, oil, etc.).
Portfolio Manager does not currently offer the ability to upload Green Button files into Portfolio Manager, nor do we offer Green Button “Connect My Data.” EPA is actively monitoring the development of the Green Button standard and certification programs, and is exploring future opportunities to expand Portfolio Manager’s connections with Green Button data.
