Utilities can be a significant source of operating expenses at many organizations. They also tend to be regarded as “fixed costs” in the sense that little can be done to lower these expenses without incurring major capital outlays. For many organizations, that’s simply not true.
The reality is that cost-free options often exist that can materially reduce what an organization pays for the kilowatt hours of electricity or the decatherms of natural gas it uses. If the right expertise is applied, these and other utility services can be effectively managed like any other operating input.
The professionals at Energy Cost Advisors can help you answer these and other pertinent questions. Our focus is on billing issues and opportunities. We want our clients paying the lowest possible amount for the utilities they need. We accomplish this through two basic service options: Utility Account Audit and Utility Account Management.
