January 2000

The Harbor Pine Creek homeowners associ¬≠ation in Wilmington, CA (Los Angeles County), a property chat comprises 220 condominiums, was paying out too much in monthly utility costs. Recently, the association contacted Pacific Utility Audie Inc. to con¬≠duct a study on how it could reduce these fees to a more manageable level. Pacific Utility Audit’s analysis of the association’s utility bills and on-sire field inspection of the property uncovered several utility billing overcharges and opportunities for utility expense reductions. These overcharges and opportunities are described in chis article.
