While utility bill auditing companies have been performing services for decades, most of the companies in the industry are small operations, working from home offices or small commercial office operations. The professional education necessary to work in the utility bill auditing industry has been a barrier to entry over the years, with most of the existing players being former employees of utility companies.
Utility and service providers use computerized systems to create their billing, so finding discrepancies in energy bills or other services is not generally an issue of “wrong addition and subtraction”. Success in auditing comes primarily from intimate understanding of industry and practices.
The primary function of Discovery Energy is cost reduction as opposed to lowering consumption. An audit will help a company pay less for the energy and services they currently use.
Utility bill audits are generally performed on a contingency basis, with no upfront cost to the client. When the auditing efforts result in savings, they are shared between the client and the auditing firm.
The savings and refunds come from identifying and fixing common occurrences of metering errors, rate errors, mathematical and clerical errors, misclassifications, missed incentives and unclaimed credits, duplicate charges and market pricing opportunities.
Companies that spend a minimum of $12,000 yearly in energy expenses are at the lower end of the spectrum. Discovery Energy’s previous customers have spent as much as $25,000,000 annually in energy costs.
