Meter names should be recognized by your user, using an account number if there are several for a building >> Save Changes Step 2: Define same building(s) in ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager. We will help you establish an account if you don’t have one. You will need to know the year the building was built, and for certain types of buildings (congregations, schools, offices and others) information such as number of computers, walk-in refrigerators, hours, etc. Add meters that have the same names as the ones set up in Energy Stewards. Step 3: In Portfolio Manger, link building and its meters to RIA_Manager via Share. Check read/write option (meaning data will maintained in Energy Stewards) Step 4: We will be automatically notified by email of the request to Share, and then complete the connection between the two databases.
