Hi, is there an easy way to view the total capacity of the installed electrical equipment and/or lighting for a building model in eQUEST? I have searched through the detailed output files but nothing seemed to provide this data.

Thanks in advance for any insights!

File menu --> Export file--> Space Loads Report (CSV)

This will report space areas, Lighting Power, and Misc. Equip. Power for all spaces in the model. You can open the CSV file in a spreadsheet and sum the values.

The LPD, EPD and Area are also reported in the SIM output file in the LV-B report. You can copy that into a spreasheet and calculate the total values.

I'm not sure if Misc. Equipment is the extent of what you mean by "installed electrical equipment".

Thanks! The Space Loads Report CSV is exactly what I was looking for
