Audit

Energy audits can provide a significant savings in both regulated and non-regulated states.

Identifying billing errors not only generates retroactive credits, but also results in permanent cost reductions on a go-forward basis.

Working with the utility companies to negotiate refunds for overbilling is often a very long, drawn out and frustrating process and yields very little return. In our experience, organizations that perform their own telecom audits can expect to cut expenses by 1% to 3% provided they have the learned knowledge, expertise, enough resources focused on the task, access to their provider tariffs, and effective negotiation skills to recover money from utility companies.

Through ComTec’s experienced professional team, organizations that take advantage of our energy auditing service often experience reductions in excess of 15% of their annualized telecom expense.

ComTec’s energy audit service provides a complete historical audit of services throughout your enterprise to include:

Reconcile past billing, identify billing errors
Obtain retroactive credits
Renegotiate existing contracts
Optimize existing services

Demand Response

How Does Demand Response Work?

The energy grid can become overloaded, especially during the hot summer months when electricity demand is high. To ensure grid stability operators will call on participating businesses to briefly lower their energy usage. Incite will work with you to determine your eligibility, fully educate you on your options, and help you decide the best demand response plan for your company. Our goal is to turn your energy into an additional income stream.

At peak times (such as a hot summer’s day when homes and business increase air conditioning use), there is strain on the electrical grid. Energy providers then call on businesses to lower their electricity usage to lower the overall energy demand.

Participating businesses then earn compensation for reducing their energy usage. The overall demand for energy goes down preventing blackouts and brownouts.
