Are there UTILITY Bills Errors?

In a single year, public utility companies have over-billed their customers $19 BILLION!”

-US House of Representatives Ways and Means Committee

Utilities are among your business’s highest expenses, right after mortgage and taxes, and 80% of companies are overspending on their utility expenses.

That’s right, your business may have been overcharged thousands of dollars, and you would have no way of knowing!

Do you want to be one of them?

Why Utility Bills audit?

The law allows businesses to look back at their past 36 months of utility bills and ask to recover these overlooked errors and overcharges. The law also requires utility companies to REFUND any legitimately discovered overcharges and errors.

Historically, the recovery ratio for Refund-Discovery is approximately 65%, representing 8- 14% of your annual utility costs.

Where would Utility Bills errors happen?

Most Utility Bills errors happen in one of the following five areas:

  1. Assigning an incorrect Rate Structure. Almost 20% of businesses have inefficient rate structures.
  2. Energy usage units billed, do not match actual meter reading.
  3. Billing errors due to incorrect rate hikes, incorrect fees, addition mistakes, or typos.

  4. Growth Trends: The business may have just renovated one of its buildings, resulting in services and meters that are no longer in use but are still being charged for.

  5. Tax exemptions are different based on where the business is located, therefore, applying correct tax exemptions codes may lead to tons of savings.
