What is a utility bill audit?

A utility bill audit is a comprehensive review of your power or natural gas bills; to analyze your usage and identify any billing errors, overcharges or future savings opportunities that you qualify for. A utility bill audit can uncover large sums of money that have been overpaid by the customer.

  • Simply authorize us to conduct an off-site audit and analysis of your electric and/or gas bills and provide us with a copy of one month’s bill.
  • We will obtain 12 months or more of your historical billing directly from your utility provider.
  • Our analytical team will conduct a historical audit to search for errors, overcharges and other refund opportunities.
  • We will also perform an in-depth analysis to identify ongoing savings opportunities.
