The crucial information we’re after to assist the design of a custom energy solution are the spreadsheets that report energy consumption. Interchangeably used, the term “interval data” is also known as “meter data”, “raw data”, “demand interval data”, and “green button data” but they basically all represent the similar information that is provided by utilities.
In the case that your business may not have a digital account, our team can walk you through creating one or discuss how to contact your local utility account representative for assistance. This process ensures only that Interval data, also known as “green button data”, is shared with Revel through UtilityAPI.
How we use that data
Once authorized, UtilityAPI provides interval data, time of use breakdowns, bill tiers, demand charges, billing data and line items that our team uses in designing the most optimal solution to meet demand.
Along with the technical solution of our commercial solar system design, we analyze other existing elements like the current time of use plan against their interval data. This often results in finding additional savings by adjusting the rate plan the business is on.
