How do I enter district steam, district hot water, and/or district chilled water? Follow

If you buy district steam, hot water, or chilled water from a utility company or another neighbor building, then you should enter these meter types in Portfolio Manager with the units and quantity you see on your bill. District Steam, District Hot Water and District Chilled water are all available meter types.

If you produce district steam, hot water, or chilled water from your own central plant (e.g. from a boiler or chiller at your property) then you do not need to quantify your district steam, hot water, or chilled water. Instead, you must enter a meter for the fuel that you purchase to power your plant – this might be natural gas or fuel oil, for example. 

If you produce your own district steam and you have a campus of buildings – then you should view this FAQ to determine the best way to measure your entire campus.
