We're working on a dorm project with apartment style units such that it's essentially multi-family housing. Each apartment has a kitchen and is, according to my MEP, therefore being provided with its own electrical panel to comply with NEC requirements. The panel for each unit has multiple circuits including lighting, plug loads, etc. To achieve this credit, then, is the only possible way to do it to meter each end use within each panel and therefore multiple the number of meters somewhat exponentially? Are there other methodologies for building electrical service that folks have used that both meet this NEC requirement and most cost-effectively meet the Advanced Energy Metering credit?
