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.

What do I need to do to start using your service?

UMS has a proven service model designed to minimize disruption to our customer’s business and maximize outcomes.

  • 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.
  • We will negotiate with your utility provider, on your behalf, to secure any refunds, credits and ongoing savings you are due.

How is UMS compensated for its work?

Our policy is to never charge for work that does not result in savings for the customer. If savings are identified, we are paid a share of the savings you receive.

Does UMS continue to work on our behalf after the initial audit?

UMS will continually monitor your accounts going forward every quarter to ensure you are not being overcharged for any utility provider errors or irregularities and to guarantee you are still on the best rate for your operations.
