A bill summary analysis is useful for getting a broad overview of the energy data reported by the selected meters at your site during the time of use (TOU). TOU is a metering data interval type that describes energy usage in component terms (e.g., off-peak, on-peak, mid-peak, etc.) rather than hourly or daily. A time of use can be assigned as an adjective describing an observation type. A bill summary analysis displays (where applicable) maximums, minimums, averages, consumption, and load factor of the selected data.

  1. Select Analysis>Advanced Scripts. The Advanced Scripts workspace appears.

  2. From the Analysis menu, select Generate>Summary>Bill. The Bill Analysis window appears.

  3. In the Data source field, click . The Select Data window appears.

  4. Select the data source with the interval data you want to include in the analysis.

    • Click  to open folders and view their contents.

    • If you are unable to locate the appropriate device (meter/place/weather station/counter), click More. Follow the instructions for Finding Data Sources.

  5. In the Date range section, select a date range that the analysis should encompass.

    • To set a predefined date range, select the appropriate time frame in the Range field.

    • To set a specific date range, in the Start and End date fields, type the date or use the drop-down arrow to select the date from a calendar.

  6. Click OK. The Select Data window closes.

  7. In the TOU periods field, select the time of use period from the drop-down list of available time-of-use categories for that dataset.

    NOTE: Time of Use (TOU) is a metering data interval type that describes energy usage in component terms (e.g., off-peak, on-peak, mid-peak, etc.) rather than hourly or daily. A time of use can/should be assigned to an interval as an Observation Type.
  8. If you have run an analysis previously and would like to add the current analysis to it, select the Append to script check box. (If Append to script is not selected, the results of the previous analysis are overwritten.)

  9. After making your selections, click OK.

    • The Output tab displays a report-like format of the requested data.

    • The Chart tab displays a graph of the requested data. See Overview: Data Charting

    • The Script tab displays the script (code) used to generate the analysis. See Overview: Advanced Scripts
