An audit review and input into our proprietary rate tariff software found that with the client's level of electric use, a rate change would gain them significant yearly savings. Switching from a G-2 General Service rate to a G-3 Time of Use Rate allowed the facility to save $9,700 annually.
A facility requested an audit following a substantial reduction in their gas use. Cleary Energy changed their transportation gas rate Tariff R30 - a large use gas account - to a Rate R10 small use account, earning the client a continuous annual saving averaging $10,000 per year.
As a result of our audit, a small 90-bed independent operator recovered $25,000 in retroactive charges from their electric and gas utility company account. Due to an incorrect state tax classification, we were able to secure the facility annual savings of $7,500 going forward.
Our audit research uncovered a facility water meter with wrong usage reads over a four-year period. Prior to the audit, the facility had asked for and received a $25,000 refund from the water company, as well as a $20,000 refund from the sewer authority. In our research, we reviewed six years of history, extrapolated actual use, and negotiated an additional $56,000 water company refund and $256,000 sewer authority refund, including both the meter errors and duplicate billings.
