Common report filters

Data Displayed

  • Billing Period Data uses the raw billing data as received from the utility vendor. Billing period data is better when working with accounting functions.
  • Calendarized data is more representative of monthly use and cost. For year-over-year COST comparisons use calendarized data.
  • Normalized is best when comparing USE year-over-year because it removes weather as a variable.

Date Range

Set a specific billing period or use prior year or prior month.

Bill is from external vendor

Lets you include or not include chargebacks bills.
