AMERICAN will obtain aggregated (common area and all tenants) electric, steam and gas usage history from Con Ed, Keyspan and National Grid, and fuel oil deliveries from you or the oil companies.

AMERICAN will compile and enter the monthly usage of all utilities into Portfolio Manager and generate the required report.

AMERICAN will submit the report to NYC DOF and confirm its acceptance.
