It is the same
The CEC informed us their system was down on Saturday for a brief period.
The modeling tools will not allow for a heat pump to be used for hot water generation, only a gas or electric boiler.
Sorry, there are no T24 tools that can model this situation via performance modeling.
As an oversight, the CEC failed to accommodate the ICS systems in the newest release. It is on their list of things to fix.
Our instructions on the webpage state specifically NOT to hit restart, but to hit CANCEL during this process. Everyone else seems to be fine with it.
My suggestion is to break this out as a separate System/Zone, with an electric heating system serving as the HVAC system.
Show this as a New window entered under the Wall.
EnergyPro Lite is a specialized version developed for Stop Waste in Oakland for Multi-Family upgrades and incentives. Distribution of this version is handled by them.
Yes, click above on the Download selection, select which version you wish, and then you will find a link to install.
Try deleting the unit and starting with another unit that has that value already populated.
We do have an import mechanism, we can read in a GBXML file, a common format used by Revit, IES, Trane, Sketchup, Bentley, etc. This is under the File | Import selection.
This is input at the System level of the tree, HERS tab. New code requires you use 0.45 or lower.
Version 8 no longer has the Utility Database since the ones we had were so out of date. To get a current SDGE rate, you would need to get the data from them and input that manually.
Turns out the CEC has rethought this issue and just published info on this in the latest Blueprint. Bottom line, you don’t need it. But since the message comes from the CEC side, we cannot get around it. You need to check the box at the Zone level of the tree, but are not required to implement this. We are hoping the next update they give us in Feb will have this messaging turned off.
