In today’s world everyone depends on electricity. You depend on your utility provider to assure that you have it so that your business can function. It must be measured in a manner that allows for the provider to bill you for your exact usage – and they structure rate programs that provide you will a number of options on how you’re billed. But who set you up on the plan? Who double checks to be sure there is no better option? And who can understand the line items and mathematical calculations required to figure it all out? When you get your bill each month, you pay it because it just “is what it is” and it’s “a cost of doing business”, right?


Some 70% of business utility bills contain errors.* The rate program, tax and tariff structure, and demand profile that you are on all determine what your bill ultimately works out to be. A minute error of just $5 a day can add up to add up over the course of months and years to what can be tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Natural gas is a versatile energy that businesses depend on for a variety of reasons. Whether it is used for heating, cooking, medical purposes or as an integral part of the manufacturing process, natural gas plays an important role in all business operations. Similar to electricity, gas must be quantified in a manner that allows for the provider to bill you for your exact usage – and there are rate programs that can be more or less beneficial for your facility depending upon the volume that you require. Has your business grown? Has the nature of your operation changed? Who exactly put you on the plan you are on to begin with? With so many variables, it is difficult to know if you are taking advantage of the best possible program, billing structure and incentives available to your business.

The deregulation of energy has provided new opportunities to save money and cut energy costs for today’s businesses. However, it has also created new challenges. Large companies now divert significant time and resources to assure they are deploying the most effective energy supply procurement strategy. Many small business owners still are not sure about what the best procurement strategy is for them; the advantages and disadvantages that can be realized in fixed vs. variable rate pricing, as well as the appropriate term to contract for.

U-Tel can assist companies of all sizes in better understanding the deregulated energy markets and how their business can take advantage of lower and/or fixed energy supply costs. In addition to consulting in this capacity, U-Tel performs detailed billing audits on current energy bills to identify errors on the present bills. U-Tel will then analyze contract options for electric and gas supply where these opportunities are available. The net benefit of both measures typically results in a significant reduction of energy costs and even a possible refund to the business.

As a result of our extensive involvement with utility providers in auditing energy nationwide, U-Tel has forged relationships with national energy suppliers. These partnerships afford U-Tel the unique opportunity to pass through volume pricing to our clients as an additional benefit of auditing with our firm. The best part is that we are compensated by the supplier, so the service will benefit your business at no out-of-pocket cost to you.

Additionally, this relationship allows for U-Tel to further assist national businesses in consolidating their energy procurement to one supplier across multiple markets. This allows for businesses to take advantage of volume pricing that they are typically not afforded when going through a bid-based purchase process in each market.
