The Niagara energy benchmark chart retrieves energy meter histories and presents them on a comparison chart. The chart should be bound to a numeric point or numeric writable. It updates in real-time and uses bql queries to collate the data. Set the daily/monthly benchmark values in the charts configuration. Use the date/time picker for narrowed searches. The chart has a number of configurable properties that can be used to modify look, feel, and functionality. Also check out the Energy View Template.

You can reference a history ord directly e.g.
These are the values that your site is aiming for. It is a comma delimited string with 7 numeric values, and starts from Sunday. You can also point to a string point which contains these values. Set the dailyBenchmarksOrd property instead.
It is a comma delimited string with 12 numeric values, and starts from January. e.g. 1000,1000,800,800,700,600,600,700,700,800,1000,1000 You can also point to a string point which contains these values. Set the dailyBenchmarksOrd property instead.
