I can't access the city specific weather data that exists under the site conditions drop down menu. My internet is working but the error message says "check your internet connection." Can you tell me if the Beopt software still support this function? If not, how does the software factor in weather related factrors?

@Charles does this post answer your question? In summary, the EnergyPlus development team moved EPW files to a different web site URL.

Here's a drop-in replacement for C:\Program Files (x86)\NREL\BEopt_2.8.0\Data\EPWs.csv https://drive.google.com/file/d/11RalUV6NObXn3pqywtnQq87LXa-aaovB/view

Building on @jpierce 's answer here's an updated EPWs.csv that has all 3,034 weather files, and some corrections.

The BEopt team is planning a new release that will use the updated weather URLs, but it's still several months out.
