CIM Issues #5345
Add attribute nextReadingSchedule to UsagePoint
This new attribute will inform the Energy supplier when the (next) reading is done. Could be a date, or a string with a format "MMDD". Example 0704 informing that regular readings are done yearly July 4th. Typically used for yearly read market evaluation points. Description of the new attribute can be "The indication of when the next meter reading is scheduled." The datatype is String (to allow different use cases; 2022, July, 0704). Implementation would specify the rules as to the format of the expected next reading schedule.
At the Richland meeting. Agreed upon using three fields: nextReadingYear, nextReadingMonth, nextReadingDate would allow for anyone to use any combo of the elements. For example, only nextReadingMonth=3 is March. Replace the null/missing nextReadingDate=15, it becomes March 15. Same format for any implementation.
Recommend integer for fields.
