I am using OpenStudio v2.1.0 to model a building. I have monthly utility data that I imputed into the model as this tutorial video suggests one do: ( However, I am using TMY3 data as opposed to a real year for weather data, though I do select an actual year in order to input the monthly bills. And I do not enter in the utility pricing as I am only concerned at the moment with an energy consumption comparison.

A couple problems arise:

1) When I attempt to alter the year of the monthly bills to something other than 2017, OpenStudio crashes.

2) When I leave the year on 2017, I am able to run the calibration, however in OpenStudio ResultsViewer, the utility bills do not show up.

you're going to want to use AMY data from the year you are calibrating against. This post on the forum details the sources:
