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.
