EnergyCAP recommends creating rates using the Rate Wizard (follow procedure below). It is easier than using the "Simple Rate" creation method.

  1. Select Accounting > Rates. The Rate Manager appears.

  2. Click to select the vendor under which to create the rate.

    NOTE: Click  to navigate the hierarchy of vendors.

  3. From the Rate menu (or from the right-click popup menu), select New Rate > Wizard. The Rate Wizard-General window appears. If it does not, make sure that a vendor is selected/highlighted from the vendor list.
  4. Input the requested information including:
    • Rate Name (Typically, the rate name listed on the actual bill is used. Rate names found on bills differ occasionally from the names found in tariff information)
      NOTE: Each rate name associated with a vendor MUST be unique (for example, cannot have a "GS1" rate for electric AND water)
    • Rate Type (options are Fuel Cost, Rate Rider or Tax)
    • Commodity
    • Effective Date  (The first day that the rate is effective) Effective dates are typically derived from tariff information. Enter the rate effective date or use the drop-down arrow to select the date from the popup calendar.
    • Any desired Note (any comments specific to this rate, up to 255 characters).
  1. After making your selections, click Next button to proceed to the Rate Wizard-Feature Selection page.

    NOTES: If desired, use the Back button to return to a previous Rate Wizard page. And/or use the Cancel button to exit the Rate Wizard without saving the rate. Wizard page/window content and number of windows may vary depending on selected rate options.
