This information could eventually provide the basis for an ENERGY STAR-type rating for an apartment complex or even individual submetered units within it.

The value of such an up-front rating is that potential tenants can more accurately anticipate energy expenses associated with a rental property. And multi-family property owners have a tool to assist them in energy analysis and capital improvements.
