UCM Client Testimonials: Special Districts

“As a result of our inquiries, there was one firm that clearly stood out as the best choice for California’s special districts: Utility Cost Management LLC (UCM)… CSDA has been impressed with UCM’s lengthy track record of success, its commitment to customer service, and the consistent and enthusiastic praise that it received from its former clients.”
— Neil McCormick, Executive Director – CALIFORNIA SPECIAL DISTRICTS ASSOCIATION

“To our surprise, UCM discovered that the district was being overcharged by all three of its main energy providers. Within a few months, UCM had completed the changes to our utility service that already are saving more than $125,000 per year.  We are evaluating additional opportunities with UCM that may result in significant additional savings.”
— Rich Kissee, Operations Manager – SANTA MARGARITA WATER DISTRICT

“Within a few months, UCM succeeded in getting the District a refund of over $300,000 from PG&E. Because of this change, the District has reduced its electricity costs by $90,000 per year. UCM’s knowledge of PG&E’s own tariffs and rates, along with experience in applying them to this account is the reason the District was successful in lowering its electricity bills.”
— Jesus Martinez, Senior Water Systems Operator – PAJARO VALLEY WATER MANAGEMENT AGENCY

UCM analyzed more than 200 separate accounts and provided a written summary that detailed opportunities for savings. Within a few months, cost-saving changes to 40 of the accounts were implemented, and as a result Metropolitan has reduced its electricity costs by about $80,000 per year.”
— Thomas E. DeBacker, CPA, Chief Financial Officer, Interim – METROPOLITAN WATER DISTRICT OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

“Pleasant Valley Recreation & Park District operates 27 parks in the Camarillo area located in Ventura County California.  The District first retained Utility Cost Management LLC in 2004, and since that time UCM has provided a variety of services that have helped to reduce utility expenditures. In fact, the District already has saved $69,270.10 as a direct result of UCM’s work … Recently UCM represented the District in a proceeding before the California Public Utilities Commission. UCM succeeded in changing a Southern California Edison regulation that was resulting in unfairly high electricity charges at three of the District’s parks … this change alone will save the District about $40,000 per year."
