Utility Bill Analysis

Reduce costs with no out-of-pocket fees and no changes to facility operations.

UCM combines data analysis with regulatory expertise to reduce costs.

Utility charges are determined by complex, ever-changing rules and regulations, which are becoming increasingly convoluted as customers generate more of their own energy and adopt new technologies.  Meanwhile, there is a tremendous amount of utility data available from “smart meters”, software programs, control systems, and submeters.  For large customers, even the most sophisticated consumers of utility services, the challenge of managing all this information to minimize costs can be daunting – especially if they have hundreds of utility providers or accounts.

 

This is where UCM’s Utility Bill Analysis can help.  UCM analyzes utility charges on a meter-by-meter, account-by-account basis to identify billing discrepancies and other savings opportunities.  UCM’s expertise gathering and organizing utility data, performing in-depth analyses of that data, and understanding utility tariffs, rates and regulations allows it to find billing changes and other cost-reduction strategies that others miss.

 

But more important than simply identifying opportunities, UCM’s goal is to get them implemented.  UCM takes care of the entire process, and after more than 30 years, we know how to convince utilities to make desired billing changes.

 

The Utility Bill Analysis service offers many benefits:

 

  • No Risk – UCM’s compensation is a percentage of actual savings realized, after clients have received the savings.  If UCM cannot generate results, clients pay nothing.

 

  • No Out-of-Pocket Costs – UCM never asks for up-front fees or deposits, and the savings we implement require no capital investment.

 

  • No Hassle – UCM obtains most of the information needed for its analyses directly from utility providers, and can complete its work with almost no client time.

 

  • Proven Results – UCM has a 30-year track record obtaining material savings for a wide variety of clients, including some of the largest commercial and governmental utility customers.

 

  • Complements Existing Client Sustainability Efforts – Most customers already have programs in place to reduce consumption.  UCM’s work in no way interferes with these efforts, but instead enhances them by ensuring that clients pay the lowest rates possible for each unit of energy or water that is used.
