Instructions for Determining Your Energy Use Intensity (EUI) and Water Use Consumption

You will need access to your past energy bills (gas and electricity). If you have been in your current facility for one year or more, you are required to utilize at least the past years worth of energy usage data. If you have not been in your facility for one year, utilize all the monthly data that you have available.

a.     For EPB customers

i.     Go to www.epb.net

ii.     Click on ‘My Account’ in the upper right corner and log into your account on the next screen. If you don’t have an online account set up yet, click ‘Click Here To Register’ under New Users and follow the prompts.

  iii.     Once logged in, at your My Accounts page, click on ‘Consumption History’ on the left column.

     iv.     Scroll down to middle of page and click ‘Export to Excel’ file.

      v.     Download and save this file. This will give you the last year’s worth of data.

b.     For Chattanooga Gas customers

                                               i.     Go to www.chattanoogagas.com and create a user account (if you don’t have one already). From there you can access your usage/consumption history and download/export an Excel file with your past 24 months of gas usage.

                                              ii.     You may also call Chattanooga Gas for assistance at 1-866-643-4168.

                                             iii.     Save the file and title is appropriately with your company name.

        C. Tennessee American Water

You will also need access to your past water bills. If you have been in your current facility for one year or more, utilize at least the past year’s worth of water usage data.  If you have not been in your facility for one year, utilize all the monthly data that you have available.

Contact Tennessee American Water at 1-866-736-6420 and request they either (a) convert your water usage history into an Excel file or PDF and email it to you, or (b) mail your water usage history reports to you.  Make it clear to them you only need a monthly summary of the total gallons used for each year.
