After you've created the two meters that you need to track your onsite green power (solar or wind), you'll need to enter your monthly usage. Make sure you enter A, B, and C from the diagram below.

  • For your Onsite Green Power Meter (solar panel meter):
    • Energy Used On Site - This is the energy that you generated from your solar (or wind) system and used in your building. In the diagram below, it is "B."
    • Energy Exported Offsite -This is the energy that you exported to the grid. In the diagram below, this is "A."
    • Estimation - Y/N whether you've entered an estimated value.
    • REC ownership -  Do you own the environmental benefit of this "green power?" See this FAQ for an explanation.
