Energy Tariffs

Energy Tariffs

 

Tariffs can be set up in ENMAT for electricity and natural gas supplies. These tariffs allow ENMAT to perform a number of useful calculations on the energy data that is imported, including:

Energy Cost – calculates the cost of energy based on p/kWh unit rates and fixed charges and allows for prediction of monthly energy expenditure in the Billing Forecast chart.

Day/Night Units – allocates consumption to day/night units (where applicable) for analysis of time of day consumption.

Power Factor – allows monitoring of a site’s power factor against a target, shown in the Average Power Factor. By default this is set to 0.95, as this figure is recommended by the National Grid.

Authorised Supply Capacity (ASC) – allows monitoring of maximum demand (kVA) against the site’s supply capacity in the Supply Utilisation chart.

If you would like energy tariffs setting up for your site then please contact ENMAT support on support@en-mat.com or 0161 448 7722, or raise a ticket on the support helpdesk http://support.en-mat.com/.


Default Energy Tariff

For all electricity supplies, if a tariff has not been set up then the default tariff is used (natural gas supplies do not need a default tariff to fully function). This includes the following default settings:

Day Unit times = 07:00 to 00:00.

Night Unit times= 00:00 to 07:00.

ASC = 1

Power Factor Guidance = 0.95

Energy Contract Costs = all set to zero.

A warning message will appear whenever a site does not have a tariff set up and is using the default tariff:

WARNING: No tariff has been set for this site A default tariff is in use. Default day unit (07:00 to 00:00) and night unit (00:00 to 07:00) times may not reflect actual contracted hours. Please contact Envantage on 0161 448 7722 if you would like to add your actual contract tariff details.
