by Sustainability Victoria Energy Software Team | Mar 22, 2024

Sustainability Victoria (SV) has prepared a draft PDF user manual for FirstRate5 Whole- of-Home (v1.0.0) that is available on the FirstRate5 website. Users should carefully read through the manual to learn how to import FirstRate5 project files into FirstRate5 Whole-of-Home (v1.0.0) and complete a valid Whole of Home assessment. 

SV will shortly be migrating the draft manual into an online system and also releasing support videos. We will inform all users when these are available.
