Utility Bill Errors – Common but Cryptic
Take a look at the following two exposés published in newspapers, websites and Youtube during the month of July, 2014 alone.
1. On July 24th Forbes Magazine rated College Station, Texas as the number 2 city in the nation for small businesses. The home of Texas A & M University, the town is considered one of the most educated community in the state. Recently, this community has become educated on a subject that is not particularly pleasant…..significant overcharges related to water and sewage billing.
2. In Juneau, Wisconsin the Dodgeland School District learned that they, too were a victim of water bill overcharges totaling more than $19,000. A local not-for-profit senior living community in the same area likewise discovered they, too, had overcharges exceeding $2,000.
According to the Better Business Bureau’s website, thousands of complaints concerning overcharges have been lodged against many major landline service providers. If nothing else, these stories dramatically reinforce the necessity to engage a Utility Bill Auditing Firm. Errors resulting from computer glitches, mistakes, and/or simple human error, continue to take a huge financial toll on organizations large and small. Unfortunately, few realize they are being continually receiving inaccurate utility bills.
In some cases, these mistakes are so blatant that one cannot help but notice them. Unfortunately, that is not the usual scenario. That’s why it takes experts like Orpical Energy’s Utility Auditing specialists to apply their unique qualifications to thoroughly dissect and analyze utility bills of every kind. It is this distinct expertise that enables them to locate and verify even the most ambiguous charges and vague explanations embedded in your utility bills.
Since we do not conduct physical audits, there is no need to visit your workplace and interrupt employees. We require no upfront fees. Initially, all we will need is a copy of the most recent bill pertaining to the audit you are seeking. Within a few days, we will advise you of any inaccuracies. If we detect errors, we will ask you to officially authorize a 36 month audit. Because we work on a contingency model, no payment will be required until your comprehensive savings are identified. Another plus is our policy of working directly with your provider(s), eliminating the need to involve your staff and affect workflow.
Regardless of the economic climate, wasting money is never acceptable in business. Yet it happens all the time. Be aware of where and how your utility dollars are being spent. Being informed always provides the greatest return.
