In Energy Manager budget represents a benchmark for monthly and annual consumption. This information is available in selected Dashboard and Site details widgets. For information how to configure budgets, see Configuring budgets.

To enable budget information, use the Data > Budget option in the widget's More button.

Alternatively, in some widgets you can select the budget icon directly from the chart description to enable/disable the budget information. You may first need to expand the widget to see this option.

The budget information contains a color code which is valid throughout the Energy Manager.
