We have been very pleased with the professionalism and the results of our utility audit.  Right up front the auditors discovered that we were being billed an incorrect rate on our electricity, which saved us almost $3,000 when corrected.

We would recommend that any manufacturing business have Utility Audit Solutions analyze their utility and phone bills as a means of insuring that they are being billed correctly and fairly.

  8. Which utility bills does Utility Audit Solutions audit? We audit electric, gas, sewer, water. We do not audit trash. Auditing trash bills has proven to be cost prohibitive for the client. This is because trash overcharges and errors are almost non-existent and cannot be verified unless weighing is done by other than the service provider.  Given the rare occurrence of error and the effort to collect either the data or, for the client to compile the bills, we discourage them from spending their time doing trash audits.
