Commercial Quick-Start EnergyPro Guide

For contractor participants in the Clean Energy Sacramento program administered by Ygrene



      About the EnergyPro Handbook


This handbook is designed to be a resource for participating contractors in the Clean Energy Sacramento program who are modeling commercial project upgrades using EnergyPro. This guide will present the basics of completing an energy simulation model in EnergyPro, communicate modeling-related program requirements, and describe how to properly submit EnergyPro data outputs to the program.

The EnergyPro Handbook is organized to mimic the structure of the EnergyPro building tree. Additional notes are included to highlight software features and tips, as well as program policies to keep in mind while you are building and editing your energy simulation model.

The technical team at Bevilacqua-Knight, Inc. (BKi) developed this handbook based on the EnergyPro modeling requirements of the Clean Energy Sacramento program, provided to them by the Ygrene team. Any EnergyPro questions or issues that contractor participants confront during the initial months of the Clean Energy Sacramento program should be emailed sent to ­­____________Support@energysoft.com for direct program support.

Orange text in the handbook indicates either an external website link or a link to the referenced section within the EnergyPro Handbook. Click this text to access the referenced content. You can also click any item in the table of contents to jump to that section of the handbook.
