Virginia Administrative Code
Title 20. Public Utilities And Telecommunications
Agency 5. State Corporation Commission
Chapter 305. Rules for Electricity and Natural Gas Submetering and for Energy Allocation Equipment

20VAC5-305-50. Energy allocation.

Energy allocation equipment may be used solely to allocate the cost of electric or natural gas service among tenants using the apartment house, office building, shopping center, or campground.

Energy allocation systems should provide a reasonable determination of energy use and resulting costs for each dwelling unit, nonresidential rental unit, or campsite. The energy allocation system should be appropriate for the HVAC system application. Components should be properly installed to assure correct measurements of allocation parameters. There should be proper calculation procedures in converting from measurement to allocation.

Energy allocation equipment in service may be tested by the owner, the commission, or any other lawfully constituted authority having jurisdiction. Testable components of the energy allocation system should be accurate, consistent with manufacturer's specifications. The commission may, by order, require that energy allocation equipment meet other independent, authoritative technical standards or operational guidelines, such as standards developed under the auspices of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).
