complexity often results in billing errors. Hidden charges, overlooked charges that result from errors, charges for non-existing services, and incorrect billing codes can all contribute
to companies over paying for their utilities, without knowing. Our expert utility bill auditors can audit utility bills in any state. We can audit Electric bills, Natural Gas bills and Water & Sewage bills.

We recover refunds for past billing errors and overcharges and negotiate future cost savings in more than 70% of our utility bill audits.
