Step 2: Calculate Energy Requirements

Home > TOOLS > STEP 2

There are two methods for estimating power consumption. The main decision support tool uses a simple method that allows you to estimate overall power demand. If you would like a more precise estimate of power demand, you may want to consider using the separate Power Consumption tool and then entering results from that tool in the main decision support tool.
