Creating Channels

There are two types of channels in EnergyCAP, manual channels and automatic channels.

  • Manual channels are created in the EnergyCAP program.
  • Automatic channels are created via import of channel (interval) data.

EnergyCAP Enterprise ‘channel data’ is any time-series stream of data OTHER than utility bills. Examples of channel data are: electric meter 15-minute interval demand data and submeter data (hourly, daily or monthly consumption).

Once a channel has been created, it can be populated via manual entry or reading data import.  Channel data may be viewed at the meter level by selecting a given meter, actual data, then looking at the channel tab.
