Did you know that there are avenues to reduce your utility costs that do not involve a capital investment? We have been helping clients identify those options since 1991. We have worked for majority cities, counties, and school districts and hundreds of other businesses. We have saved our clients tens of millions of dollars. The best part is …if we don’t save you money we work for free! We share in a percentage of the savings that we generate after you have accepted and verified the savings. You don’t have to budget to hire us because the costs we will reduce are already in your budget and our savings will always reduce that budget. We review the bills for water, sewer, gas, electricity, storm water and even phones.
Utility bills are complex and most clients do not have the time, resources or knowhow to research those bills to make certain that they understand them and that they are accurate. Utility companies commonly make mistakes on their invoices and those mistakes are sometimes huge. We have often found overcharges for a single client’s utility account in excess of $100,000. Usually the mistakes are not that large, but they are frequently thousands of dollars on each account that has errors. We have identified over 100 different kinds of errors for one utility company. Finding a large number of errors is not uncommon. We have worked for clients representing nearly every utility company in the state of Utah and many outside of Utah and we have found errors in the invoices of almost every utility company that we have reviewed.
We also look for rate schedule changes that will reduce our client’s costs. Often those changes will generate thousands of dollars per year on each account that qualifies. Many utility companies have some kind of rate option where, if the client’s utility usage profile is right, the client will save money by selecting that option. Utility companies don’t go out of their way to let you know about those options. In fact, our experience has been that most utility companies do not put forth any effort to help their clients minimize their costs. The options are usually buried in obscure tariffs or ordinances that most people do not even know exist. We know about them and how they work.
Since most utility companies don’t have an active program to help their customers reduce their costs, they usually do not have trained staff to help clients minimize those costs. We have done utility consulting for clients who just had their utility bills reviewed by a local utility and then found tens of thousands of dollars in errors and hundreds of thousands of dollars per year in cost savings. One potential client had the utility make recommendations for rate schedule changes and then decided not to hire us. In the end the utility only told them about 2 out of 10 opportunities that they could have benefited from.
There are a variety of other types of errors and opportunities that we look for that can result in you saving thousands of dollars.
The other significant opportunity is for brokered natural gas. Many of our clients are saving as much as 20-25% or more off of their gas bills by buying gas from a 3rd party. Now is a great time to consider this if you are able to qualify. We do not charge a fee or participate in savings for brokering gas. What do you have to lose?
