A client has asked for clarification of how this would happen so they can determine which box to check in the form.

For Third Party Source, does this mean USGBC sends someone to read the meters or we hire someone come out to read and submit? Collecting information from the local utilities, who would do that if they select this open?

For Approved USGBC Data Template, does this require owners to upload the information online or does USGBC get access to the owner’s online utility accounts?
