Create or Edit Customer

As a consultant, when you login and click on your dashboard, then you will see a new customer form to fill out, as well as a list of recently created or updated customers. You can fill in the new customer details, or select a customer from the sidebar to edit existing customer. The system shows only the last 50 active customers to speed up page reloads. To find older customers, enter part of their name and click search. The attached video shows the basic steps. (No Audio - just press pause and rewind to replay)

Green Button Connect Data - How to

Solar Exists - Combine!

Page: Customer Show 

After uploading Green button data, the system will detect if there was any negative consumption data.

  • If there is negative consumption the device button will show 'Solar Found'
  • If this happens, and you want accurate actual consumption, you will need to create a Production device (solar system - that is as close as possible to currently installed system)***
  •   Currently the tool assumes a full year of Solar Production and adds this production to the Consumption for year.
  • Import a production file that simulates existing solar system.
  •  

**  One issue you may note is the annual graph for the consumption will show some negative values.  This happens because production / consumption may not be perfectly balanced in a time periods. We may work on a fix for this in future, however effect on final bill is very small.

 

Note: Currently only works correctly if you have a full year of solar. If you require to combine a part year of solar please contact administrators (or leave feedback while on the page you need to combine data on.) We can fix this by setting production for dates on which solar did not exists to zero then uploading the file.

  •   If your customer has had solar for a full year then it works. (calculates correct total)**
  •   If your customer has not had data for a full year then it will not calculate correctly.
