Name

A unique identifier for a meter. Name is used to allow easy identification of bill calculation results for each meter in the response.

Possible Values: Any string such as “House” or “Solar”. 

Required.

Rate

Contains information specifying the rate for the current scenario in the bill savings calculation.

Required.

AnnualUtilityBillEscalation_Percent

The year over year percent increase for electricity prices. Applies to the entire bill amount.

Possible Values: Any decimal value between 0 and 100.

Default: 2.5.

EnergyProfiles

An array of energy technologies or energy profiles. There are two types of energy profiles: “Consumption” and “Production”. An energy profile of Type “Pv” is also available for the BillSavings method, but is not available for the Bill method.

Required.

BillPeriods

An array defining the start and stop times for each billing period.

Default: If omitted, billing periods are assumed to start and end with calendar months.

BillPeriodEnd

The end date for the final billing period. ISO 8601 format must be used.

Possible Values: Any string conforming to ISO 8601 format, such as “2015-11-09T00:00:00”.

Default: If omitted, BillPeriodEnd is assumed to be equal to the final time point in Data.
