Rates & Bill Design

General Tips: The rate-set controls the entire middle of the bill. This means each charge and sub-charge you configure is what will appear on the bill, nothing more. The sub-total row is added automatically but only if you add an HST charge, eg 13 perecent in the Sub-Total Display Area.

Rate Selection: Each tenant has a set of properties defined in the main rate list. These combine with the date to determine which rate-set apply for a bill. If two tenants have the same utility but require differences on a bill such as a special charge, create a utility for that tenant or set of tenants such as 'Toronto Hydro - TenantX'. This way you can ensure a specific rate set applies for one-off cases.

Charges act only as a container for 1 or more sub-charge that comprise the total displayed charge. Optionally, choose List All under the Combine property to show all sub-charges on the bill. In this case, you may want to choose Charge Title Only option under Show Total Value, to have the Charge Title NOT show the sum of sub-charges and instead act like a title only. Also, you may want to choose Use Charge Title as Custom List under Display Area to have the Charge Title act as a new charges list heading on the bill, instead of the default Display Area options.

Display Order can be any number. Used to control the order, charges are listed on the bill left to right or top to bottom, 1=left or top most item. Eg: 1, 1.1, 2, 4, 4.1, 4.2, 4.21, 4.3, 5. Each sub charge has it's own ordering seperate from others.

Calculations: Percentages value should be entered as out of 100, eg: Title='Admin Fee' Rate/Flat/%=10 for 10 percent, for tax eg: Title='HST(#1234567890)' Rate/Flat/%=13 and NOT 0.13 *FOR TAX CALC='Tax Percentage'!

Tiers: to and from fields are ignored unless Tier is selected from the Calculation drop-down on a sub-charge. One sub-charge Tier From value must be 0 and one Tier To value must be infinite. Instead of a high value, you must enter 'infinite' without quotes to denote the end of the last tier. There must be at least two tier sub-charges. Make sure that tiers match up and there area no gaps: use the same number on the Tier To of a sub-charge for the next Tier From value. For example, sub-charge #1: from=0 to=100, sub-charge #2 from=100 to=300, #3 from=300 to=infinite. The billing engine rule will group interval data as less than the Tier To value and greater than or equal to the Tier From value.

Adjustment Factor: applies only to the first 4 items in Calculation drop-down list. This value is multiplied by the sum result.

Loss Factor: applies only to the first 4 items in Calculation drop-down list. This value is multiplied by the sum result, set on the building page.

*Loss Factor: ELECTRICAL RATES ONLY: The default is to use it (=Yes), but for non-electrical rates make sure to set this to =No.

Descriptor: this text will appear after the charge title. It can be anything, for example if charge is sum of kw set it to 'per kw' without quotes, charge will appear on bill as: Delivery Charges ($0.20 per kw), where title='Delivery Charges' rate="0.2" and descriptor='per kw'. If you set descriptor to be blank, the default, it will not show the rate detail at all eg our example result title becomes only: Delivery Charges

Combined Sub-Charges: the sub-charges titles are ignored if the charge container Combine field is set to Roll-up and the charge container title is used.

Calculation type: Sum(kw) and Sum(kva) = peak(kw)/peak(kva): we left the wording of this to avoid redoing hundreds of rates, it says sum but is peak/max interval value in the period.

4 *CHECK LOG SAYS XXX ROWS LOADED, if not they did not load. Review and ask Steve if not sure.

4. Review Loading Log:

Notes

Basics: You must perform steps 1 and 2 before step 3. Adding file(s) will automatically start loading based on selections in step 1 and 2.

Special Cases:
Generic Excel:

Each Excel file has to have the first row contain column titles. A column titled Timestamp is required and each other column title is the name of the meter.

Timestamp is the date and time. Date only should work for daily reads though. All dates must be in Excel date format. This means that if you change the format of a date (right click, Format Cells) the text automatically adjusts to the new format.

*Meter names (serial field) must be unique per all buildings. Steve should name meters uniquely eg not E001M001 but 326E001M01 for example if 326 Adelaide had that meter. This allows you to have more than one building meter per Excel file.

*Do not add sheets or change the name of the template from Sheet1.

Here is a sample file: Download XLS

Bill Forecast (Excel):

Refer to the Notes sheet in the template Excel file for details on how to format 'Sheet1' to load bill forecast data.
You can reload the same file again with changes made, if you wish to update any data.
Dates must be in Excel format (change date display format and automatically changes displayed text)!

Here is a sample/template file: Download XLS

Bill Loaders (Excel):

Can only contain 1 sheet as in template. Rows must be complete. Dates must be in Excel format (change date display format and automatically changes displayed text)
You can reload the same file again with changes made, if you wish to update any data.

Here are sample/template files: Download Zip of XLS's

Carma sub-meters are identified by their file name + building, so you can upload many at once that are for the same building. Carma is currently electricity only.

Carma with peak KW/KVA Normal carma format except two extra columns in csv, column4=peak KW value and column 5=peak KVA value

Carma with bill financial balances and dollar amounts Normal carma format with peak kw and peak kva plus additional columns:

If adding dollar figures for bill balances you must have a placeholder entry even if it is zero for peak kw and peak kva so the columns are loaded properly. Always use zero for peak kw and peak kva if no data exists for them.
Columns: date, time, interval usage, peak kw, peak kva, previous Balance, last Payment, late Payment Fee, balance Forward, current Balance. One row/reading per month only case. Dollar fields should not include the dollar symbol and be rounded to cents so for $1.2343 the csv file entry would be: 1.23
*For balances tenants must have only 1 rule, eg 1 meter, you can't split data since amounts are independent of that. Also, only 1 rateset per bill. If more than one meter is required, make a new meter and manually split data to load to it.
*You only have to add balance dollar figures to data if one of the values is non-zero, otherwise they default to $0.00.


Multi-file Uploads When you select many files, this is ok but ensure that all of the files apply to the selected parameters. For example, Quinte PRN the building and meter are obtained from within the file so you can upload many at once for different buildings; same goes for intellimeter. However, for example Toronto Hydro you must select the building so if you select more than one file at once they must all be for the same building. When you select a loader type, only the necessary settings are displayed. So if you select Toronto Hydro, it will ask for the building but if you select Quinte it will only require the files and no settings.


POWERLENS Toronto Hydro You can download many meters at once, but they need to be selected/grouped by interval eg 5m, 15m data in seperate downloaded files. Here is a list of meters ID'd by their interval: Download XLS.
1. Visit Powerlens site

2. Login

3. Select View Usage

4. Select 'Check Interval Data Now' (other 2 options are not configured to load, only interval)

5. Press the 'Select Meters' button and select one or more meters.
For more than one, ensure all are in the same reading interval group, eg: 5min, 15min or 1 hour.
*Tip: press full-screen button on the Select Meter page
*Tip: Reading Interval [Hourly or 5, 15 min] can be found by clicking the meter number link and viewing the right pane, Meter Details. To save time, use the XLS linked above and keep it updated.
*Tip: TH meters are configured in the server as 5, 15 or 1 so NONE will load if meters are grouped together containing non-matching Reading Intervals.
Note: if you select a group of 1 hour meters, then add a meter which is 5 minutes it will have data rolled up to 1 hour only. For this reason, they are pre-configured to prevent mixing reading intervals when loading to the Dynergy site.

6. Checkbox the meters, per group.
*Best method is to use select all option (checkbox heading), then uncheck the 5 and 1 hour meters. As of this writing, 1 hour meters have no data and are the 3-digit meter id.
*Tip: highlight the meter id text dragging with the mouse cursor to make the meter numbers more readable.

7. Press the Select meters button.
*WAIT: until the browser tab loading indicator finishes/disappears (chrome it is a spinning icon in the tab title)
*It can take a few minutes for many meters

8. Select the time period on left pane, #2.
*Typically the max number of days is a month at a time. I have had luck doing 4 months for a single meter though, in this case check the file date range after saving. I recommend select start/end dates manually as 1 and last of a month.

9. Select ENERGY, #3. WAIT until loading spinner finishes. If you leave it as demand, it will load but values will appear 4x higher for 15m and 12x higher for 5m data!

10. Select Trend interval = Metered or 15m, the lowest and corresponding to the group (Metered = 5m). If you don't see Metered, you must have a 15m or 1h meter selected.

11. Press Create, #5. DO NOT PRESS UNTIL DONE LOADING (will load previous settings data)!
*WAIT: browser tab title, loading spinner will finish eventually.
*Can take a few minutes!

12. Press Excel button, top right corner.
A pop up will appear to download the file with type .aspx
You can view in a text editor, I recommend Notepad++ as it shows each line properly vs Windows Notepad. Line # is handy for diagnosing issues listed in the log if there is an error.

Repeat step step 6-12 for 5 minute (currently 1h meters have no data)

13. Load the file on this page.
