Energy and Utility bills can be one of the largest operating expenses for a business, which can have a significant impact on a company's profitability. BLX's utilities auditors specialize in utility bill auditing and cost recovery.

Utility company rate structures are very complicated, which can lead to potential errors. Hidden costs, charges for non-existing services and complex billing codes may be increasing your monthly utility bill every month. Most companies examine their bills for obvious errors or noticeable changes from prior months and, if everything looks reasonable, they simply pass them onto their accounting department for payment. This leaves companies exposed to possible long-term incorrect payment histories. With our expertise in utility auditing, we can audit utility bills for any company in any state. Our audit procedure of your company invoices will verify:

  • Invoice Accuracy
  • Incorrect meter readings
  • Faulty meters
  • Redundant billing charges
  • Evaluation of line charges
  • Usage charges
  • Surcharges, taxes & tariffs
  • Consumption review
  • Demand reading errors

The list above represents just a few of the most common types of utility billing errors. We will help secure any over payments and reduce future utility (electric, gas, water, sewer, oil, steam) invoices.

Electricity Audits

There are fluctuations in the electricity market that may manipulate price. Competition is a strong motivator and with our resources and contacts we are able to direct our clients to the best possible supplier.

Water / Sewer Audits

Each town, cooperative, city and county handles the water and sewer that you are currently using. Municipal government entities have their own unique way of billing their clients. Invoicing for these bills are very confusing and over-billing is common. As professionals, BLX can evaluate the validity of these invoices and determine the most cost effective options available.

Natural Gas Auditing

Peak shaving, management loads and energy management services will be carefully examined during your audit. We will examine historical billing for errors and determine the most cost effective usage specific to your property.
