The credit requirements say, "The M&V period must cover at least 1 year of post-construction occupancy". This however, isn't saying that we can't complete this credit until one year after substantial completion is it? Per the LEED credit template, it seems to me that you have the proposed energy use and the metered energy use information to provide to see where you are at, and the PLAN states that you will calibrate and compare for up to a year, etc. However, if you are not in that % of compliance, the template won't award you the points, and you'll have to address the problem, per the plan, until you get into compliance (which means you might have to wait a month or two as energy reporting is available after any necessary corrections). Thoughts?
