The building upgrade report will include a before and after comparison of the building, portraying normalized cost and consumption as represented by a year-over-year analysis. 

Below is a sample report showing total energy use before and after an upgrade. The yellow (lighter) bars represent pre-retrofit data while the orange bars represent post-retrofit data.

WegoWise can keep track of multiple building upgrade reports for the entire portfolio, as well as for any given building, and users can edit, view, and delete building upgrade reports by using the small action icons to the right of the upgrade summary.

A comprehensive list of building upgrades can be found by clicking on the "Building Upgrades" tab on the Dashboard screen. Specific building-level upgrades can be found by navigating to a building's summary view and selecting the "Building Upgrades" tab.

For a more in-depth and weather-normalized analysis, WegoWise offers detailed Measurement and Verification reports as part of the WegoPremium suite. If interested in this service, please contact your Account Manager or send correspondence to support@wegowise.com
