I was previously receiving energy data through SMUD's automated benchmarking system, but it no longer works. What happened?
This is most likely a result of some change in the customer account (company name, property management, or SMUD account number). The first step would be to double check that the Account Number and Location Number are correct. If not, you will need to enter this updated information into Portfolio Manager. There are two ways you can do this:
- You can use the current Portfolio Manager property profile and enter the updated Account Number and Location Number for the current customer of record, or
- You can create a new Portfolio Manager Property Profile and enter the Account Number and Location Number for the current customer of record
