Three Critical Facts through Refunds and Rate Reductions

▪Utilities are one of a company’s top three operating expenses.

▪ According to one study, "4 out of 5 commercial or industrial customers are over billed by the utility at some point"

“These systemic, chronic-type billing problems, they exist all over the place,”said the director of

auditing at TeleTruth, a New Jersey telecommunications watchdog group, and former member of the

FCC's consumer advisory committee.

- The Washington Post  

▪The end user is responsible for selecting the best rate for their level and pattern of usage

“A utility does not automatically give and industrial or commercial customer the best rate when more than one rate is available.”

- The Wall Street Journal
