Smart choices, due diligence, and watching the bottom line. You know what it takes to run a successful business.
But mistakes happen. Especially when it comes to complex, fluctuating utility bills, which can be off by as much as 5%.
This can add up to significant overpayments. In fact, we estimate that for a company that consumes roughly 10 million kWh per year, billing errors can be up to $50,000 annually.
Bruce Power Direct has created a bill verification program to confirm all your invoices are accurate and you are paying for what you consume. If there are errors, we’ll find them. And we’ll help get money back for you.
The best part? There are zero risks. We simply partner with you and share in the savings 50/50.
In addition to knowing that your bills are correct, you’ll receive a full report of your electricity costs and consumption, providing transparency and insight that you’ve never had before. This information is the first step to understanding your electricity costs, so you can better manage and reduce them.
Plus, for a limited time, we will provide you access to our cloud-based tool, the Power Saver. This technology contains a suite of powerful tools to help you identify and prioritize conservation activities, empowering you to save even more.
To get started, all you need to do is email us copies of your electricity bills. And then wait for our audit results. If you overpaid, we file the claim on your behalf, and you get money back. If you didn’t overpay, there is no cost to you.
With several fluctuating components and charges, hydro bills are complicated to audit—especially retroactively—and something may have been missed. It’s simple due diligence. And if there has been a misstep, you can reclaim any overages.
We need three things from you.
1. Up to 24 months’ worth of electricity bills
2. A signed agreement
3. A signed letter so we can communicate with your utility
That’s it. We take it from there. If the utility made a mistake, we will calculate the value. If the value is positive for your business, Bruce Power will contact the utility and ensure they refund you the total on your next bill. And we split the proceeds 50/50, and provide a fully transparent report to accompany the invoice.
Our software program, in association with a team of analysts, will parse through every different charge on your bill, including things like demand charges, demand factor, voltage, global adjustment, etc. These are some of the key areas wherein utilities make mistakes.
First, we’ll send you a preliminary PDF report of your analysis. And, if you’re interested in pursuing it, we will provide you with access to our cloud-based energy management tool, the Power Saver. This tool will help you to identify and prioritize your conservation activities so you can start saving more money. Watch this short video to see how Bruce helps Bernie reduce his energy costs.
