faulty readings are absent. The following paragraphs contain recommended
locations for meter installation; however, if unusual circumstances exist,
some deviation is acceptable providing the metering results do not degrade the
utility manager's capability to effectively manage.
2.1 Electrical Utilities. Meter locations are as follows:
(a) Meters shall be located at sources of supply, major substation
feeders, major loads (piers, industrial loads, and hospitals), and locations
where tenant activities can be metered.
(b) Metering shall have the capability of monitoring demand in
kilowatts, and total energy in kilowatthours.
(c) Meter taps shall be installed at strategic locations so that portable
meters can be used to monitor loads for short intervals.
2.2 Steam Utilities. Meter locations are as follows:
(a) Meters shall be located at sources of supply, the supply end of
trunklines, major loads (piers, industrial loads, and hospitals), and
locations where tenant activities can be metered.
(b) Trunkline meters shall be of the turbine meter type and have the
capability to compensate for pressure and temperature.
(c) Meters taps shall be installed at strategic locations so that
portable meters can be used to monitor loads for short intervals.
2.3 Gas Utilities. Meters shall be located at sources of supply, major loads
(industrial loads and hospitals), and locations where tenant activities can be
monitored.
2.4 Water Utilities. Meters shall be located at sources of supply, major
loads (industrial loads and hospitals), and locations where tenant activities
can be metered.
3.  PRIORITY OF METER INSTALLATION.  Meters shall be installed on a priority
basis, that rank projects according to the potential savings of utility
dollars. Although installations must be evaluated individually, a typical
Installation would rank energy costs as follows, which in turn establishes
priority ranking for meter installation:
(d) Natural Gas
(b) Steam
(e) Potable Water
(f) Wastewater
(c) High-Temperature Water
