The Summary View

Last Updated: Feb 17, 2015 09:49AM EST
Each property defined in WegoWise contributes to a utility usage database. The "Summary View" page is the most basic way to access this pool of performance metrics, providing users with automated comparisons aimed to help answer the age old question: How are my buildings doing?

What is a "Median Building"?

For energy benchmarks (electricity, natural gas,and fuel oil), "Similar Buildings" are properties located in the same climate zone with the same building type (low-rise, mid-rise, etc) and heating and hot water fuel. The benchmarks are also normalized in usage/square foot.

For water benchmarks, "Similar Buildings" are properties located in the same climate zone and the same building type. Benchmarks are normalized by gallons/bedroom.

What is an "Efficient Building"?

"Efficient Buildings" are the top 25% of performers within a "Similar Building" grouping. 

Why are some cards blank?

There are two possible reasons.  One is that not all of the meters have been defined.  WegoWise is able to generate either benchmark for either common areas or the whole buildings.  If not enough meters are defined to have complete building coverage, Wego will then see if there are enough meters defined to show a common area benchmark.  If this also isn't possible, a message indicating what's missing will be shown.  

If enough meters are defined, but there is still no benchmark, it is because data is missing.  For an accurate comparison, WegoWise requires a complete month (at least 20 days of data in a calendar month) of usage data before showing a benchmark. Once there are at least 20 days of data for a given month, a benchmark will display for that utility.

Why don't I see comparisons for the most recent month?

Many utility bills arrive mid-month. Due to this pacing, it's often necessary to wait until the next bill arrives to populate full usage information for the previous month. For example, a utility bill arriving mid-June contains two weeks of usage information from May and two weeks of usage information for June. Use the month or year buttons to click back to the most recent month with full data.
