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
