Does Title 24 require measurement and verification down to the circuit?

Title 24 says you have to measure plug and lighting disaggregated loads separately for services from 50kVA to 250kVA (buildings larger than about 5000 sq.ft.) and by floor, type or area for buildings > 250kVa. This means 2 main feeders for load types (lights, plugs) must be installed either for the whole building (50-250kVA) or for each floor (>250kVA) to comply with the disaggregated metering requirement. MVP-R would allow combination of loads inside the same panel, but would need to be separated in software based on the requirement,

Note - As it is written at the moment - Title 24 does not require permanent meters. Only provisions for temporary meters to measure the particular load type. See: http://cltc.ucdavis.edu/sites/default/files/files/publication/title-24-office-module03-compliance-140415.pdf
