This is how we describe our billing and rate analysis offering. Computerized, automated analysis platforms are excellent tools for mathematical errors and some unique program findings. These tools aide in bringing obvious and formula-based errors to the surface, which can result in savings.
However, these tools cannot replace the creative problem-solving skills of team individuals trained in analyzing tariff rates and bill auditing. Thinking outside the box along with the added benefits of cross-client problem-solving on a team scale opens the door to otherwise hidden savings opportunities. You want both.
Are you recovering the demand charges when your meter readings are estimated?
Have you changed tariff rates for incorrect classification without recovering charges?
Do you stay regularly informed of the shifting tax exemptions, rebates, riders, and incentives?
