Billcast retrieves historical energy use and billing information from your utility, sparing you a huge data entry headache.
Easily download all bills, projections, and budget variances so you can plug them into your financial planning tools and respond quickly to information requests from owners and tenants.
It’s important to know how much of your cost variance is driven by operational changes, but it’s even better to know what specific issues are driving your spend. Drift reporting shows you exactly how your building’s energy use profile has changed on a minute-by-minute basis, so you can focus your efforts where they will count.
Rather than rely on blended average rates that mix together use costs, demand costs, and time-of-use periods, Gridium incorporates a detailed rate model that understands the interaction between your pattern of energy use and the utility’s tariff rules. We even allow you to include costs from third-party power providers.
Gridium constantly updates your energy forecast throughout the year, so that you can see how you’re tracking against budget and where you’re likely to end up when the fiscal calendar closes.
By simulating thousands of possible weather scenarios, Gridium can put a confidence range around forecasts, providing high, median, and low estimates. The range helps you understand the degree of temperature sensitivity in your building and the level of variance that should be considered normal. It also helps you plan for the unexpected.
