To support energy efficiency efforts by monitoring and benchmarking energy use over time.
Case 1. Single Family
Install whole-house electric and gas meters, as applicable.
Encourage homeowners or tenants to share energy usage data with USGBC via a USGBC-approved third-party by describing the benefits of participation in the Homeowner Education Manual.
Case 2. Multifamily
Install an electricity meter or submeter for each residential unit and a gas meter for the entire building, or a gas meter or sub-meter for each unit. Single room–occupancy units, transitional and temporary housing, and designated supportive housing buildings do not need an energy meter in each unit but must have a whole-building energy meter.
