Use the Utility Budgets window to compare actual energy usage and cost to budgeted amounts. Tables for utility bills are linked to the budget tables, and the system calculates the data for meters, by billing period, to show the differences between actual and budgeted amounts.
How to Use Utility Budget Window
- Open the Utility Budgets
- Locate the existing meter.
- Select a year. Since the tables are linked, the month, actual usage, and actual cost are complete.
- Click Edit on the WebTMA toolbar.
- Type the Budgeted Usage
- Type the Budgeted Cost.
- Click Save on the WebTMA toolbar.
The system calculates the amount in the Cost Variance column. Negative numbers indicate the percentage the bill is under budget. Positive numbers show percentages that the cost is equal to or over budget.
