process load energy cost - how to find out?

Dear All,
I used eQuest to create my model. I am trying to fill the LEED template EAp2 now. In section 1.9A of this form, there is a table EAp2-12 Total Building Energy Cost Performance (manual cost input). I noticed that the input in this table is used to calculate the 25% process energy cost. My question is how do I input the cost associated with the process load separately. I am looking into the ES-D report and it does not breaks down the process energy cost. Can anyone help me on this?
Thanks,
Yuvaraj

Yuvaraj,

The most accurate way to pull that information is to create another
meter and duplicate the electric/gas utility rate to break out that cost
from the rest of the building energy. What I have typically done
however, and haven't gotten questioned about it, is just use the virtual
$/kWh rate from the ES-D report and multiply that by the process kWh
use. You can also follow the same method for any gas process use you
have.

Thanks,
