Cut Utility Costs

Find Refunds, Optimize Costs

Don’t Pay More
Utility costs are probably a significant portion of your annual budget. Most utility companies think it’s the customer’s responsibility to determine the best rates for your accounts, yet most customers assume the utility company knows best. That’s why it’s important to have Cost Control Associates in your corner.

Regulated utility companies offer many choices. Our analysts understand the rates and tariffs for every state and work with you to determine the optimal choice for your organization. Because of the complexity of utility billing structures, errors can go undetected for years. We use our expertise to find those errors and get the best rate for your organization.

You are probably paying too much for your utilities. Our Cost Recovery and Reduction program offers an in-depth examination of your utility bills that can point to significant savings. Cost Control Associates will:

  • Identify areas of improvement
  • Uncover billing errors
  • Obtain refunds and
  • Analyze rate choices
Data Analysis and Review

Benefit by Ongoing Cost Savings
While our Cost Recovery and Reduction program offers a one-time (or periodic) review of your utility costs, we also offer ongoing Data Analysis and Review which provides continuous analysis of your costs and ensures that you are paying optimal rates going forward.

While most firms provide automated system checks, Cost Control Associates takes a deeper dive to validate utility billing and data accuracy. In fact, when we perform secondary reviews for clients who receive utility auditing services elsewhere, we regularly find additional reductions and refunds.

Deposit Recovery

Find Cash with Deposit Recovery
If you’ve opened and closed accounts with utility providers, there’s a good chance you’ve left money on the table. We review utility company deposit policies and work with account representatives to determine what deposits you have paid. We then negotiate to reduce or recover your deposit dollars and verify that the money is credited or returned directly to you.

They were already processing and paying our energy invoices,so  it made sense to learn about their Budgeting and Forecasting Services. With their support, we enhanced our budgeting accuracy and gained ability to adjust utility values as needed. Cost Control delivers a timely, accurate result—and their people are always pleasant to work with."
