Once you've installed a Verdigris system, there are a few final touches to get the most out of your new energy analytics platform. These settings help ensure you get the most accurate information, including:

  • Cost
  • Weather
  • Energy Use Intensity
  • Benchmarking
  • End-use comparison

1) Verify your address and building details

Go to app.verdigris.co and click the Settings icon in the top-right corner.

Then go to Building Profile  in the sidebar menu.

a) Make sure your Address  and zip code  are correct to ensure your data are in the right time zone and to get the correct weather data.

b) Add your Building Size  and Industry  to enable Energy Use Intensity (EUI) and benchmarking.

2) Add your Rate Schedule

Verdigris uses your rate schedule to provide better energy cost estimates. OpenEI has compiled an open database of utility rate schedules. Find your rate schedule tariff ID in the database and add it to your account to get more precise cost estimates.

To begin, navigate to your Building Profile page as described in the steps above, and find the Rate Schedule section. 

Next, find your tariff ID.

Step 1: Go directly to the Utility Rate Database here: http://en.openei.org/apps/USURDB/  

Or, go to OpenEi, and select the “Apps” tab at the top of the OpenEI website. 

Then click on “International Utility Rate Database” 

Step 2: Enter your utility provider in the Utility Name field and any other options to narrow the search. Click Search

Step 3: Find your rate and click View  on the right. 

Step 4: From the “View Rate” page, copy the ID from your browser (The ID appears as a series of numbers and letters at the end of the URL following /view/ ). 

Step 5: Return to the Building Profile page in app.verdigris.co and paste your ID in the OpenEI Tariff ID field.

Congratulations, you're all set up!
