Step 1: Login to the PTS
Go to the PTS login page and enter your account username and password. On the Welcome Page select Enter Production Data in the top Menu Bar.
To navigate through the PTS use the "Next" and "Previous" buttons (when available), the links at the top of the page, or the links on the right side of the page. NOTE: do not use the “Back” button on your internet browser when in the PTS database!
Step 2: Select System
If you have logged in during a production data-entry period with a valid Production Reporter user name and password, a list of systems for which you are the designated production reporter will appear. Production Reporters with only one system to report for, will have only choice on the list. However, if you do have multiple systems, the list will indicate which systems have already received monthly data, and those that have not. Click on “Select” for the system requiring data entry.
Step 3: Enter Monthly Meter Reading
Enter the meter reading, in kilowatt hours (kWh), taken from the revenue grade production meter that was installed with the system (this meter is usually located next to the inverter). Also enter the date and time that the reading was taken. Monthly production will be automatically calculated based on this reading and the previous monthly reading. For reference, meter reading history and monthly production for the previous three reporting periods is supplied on the screen. Scroll down and click on the NEXT button. Please note that production is entered into PTS as soon as you hit the NEXT button. After you click NEXT, you will not be able to go back and change your entry.
Step 4: Enter Operational Experience
If applicable, enter the total cost for maintenance, repairs and service. If there are no service costs or outages to report, just click NEXT at the bottom of the screen.
Step 5: Click Save
Once you click next on the bottom right hand side of the screen you will see a SAVE button. Click SAVE and this will complete the reporting process for one month.
