    INTRODUCTION

    The Lighting screen is used to identify lighting appliances in the unit and to enter new measures to be installed for those lighting appliances. 

     

    Data entered on the Energy Consumption screen has a direct relationship to baseload data entered here.  For Full House audits (energy modeling) the utility provider used for baseload must have energy consumption records, and the amount of usage for baseload must be specified before you can add lighting records.   The Lighting screen is accessed by opening the client’s record from the Job List screen, then selecting Lighting from the BASELOAD menu.

    1. To create a new record, click Add.
    2. To view (read-only) an existing record, click View at the beginning of the row.
    3. To edit an existing record, click Edit at the beginning of the row. 
    4. To delete a record, click Delete at the beginning of the row.
