Utility Audits Explained

Utility auditing is recovering cash you’ve overpaid.

Utility auditing is not energy management, retrofitting, rebates, or equipment upgrades.

Investing in conservation technologies (motion sensors, spa timers, digital controls) and energy efficient equipment low-flow fixtures, low-watt bulbs, solar panels, ultra-efficient boilers) reduces the amount of energy you use. But these measures don’t reduce the per unit cost of your utilities.

Utility auditing saves you money every month by identifying errors and overcharges by your utility provider, as well as determining lower rates that better match your needs. There are no capital expenses. There’s nothing to install. And you don’t need to change anything about what you’re doing now.

Energy efficient equipment upgrades are ‘standard best practice’ for achieving lower costs. But they also deliver diminishing returns. Since utility rates only go up, once new equipment achieves ROI, your financial payback diminishes every year. When a utility audit identifies a better rate, it reduces your per-unit cost from then on. This means you continue to get the same percentage of savings every month, even as rates go up. Combined, they allow you to achieve maximum cost control and energy reduction.
