Can real estate professionals auto-populate the Home Energy Score to an existing listing on RMLS?
Answer: Yes! RMLS has provided steps for auto-populating Home Energy Score information not only into a new listing but also into an existing listing.
Explanation: A tutorial video developed by Earth Advantage and RMLS has step-by-step instructions on auto-populating Home Energy Score information. This tutorial video is now available with additional information for existing listings (starts at 2:43 mark). Or, you can just follow these steps for including Home Energy Score information into an existing listing:
In the main menu, go to "Back Office"

Click the "Green/Energy" tab in the Listing Information
column on left side of page
In the Green/Energy Supplement Form,
click “include” in upper right hand corner
Click the “Load From Green Building Registry” button
You will receive a warning that it will overwrite
previous data; click "OK"
The Home Energy Score will autofill into Type 1 with the score,
the date and a link to the Report PDF
