Incentivized To Perform

Why Perform An Audit?


Utility billing errors are common, yet are almost impossible to detect.  Utility companies are not required to put their customers on the most cost-effective rates.  Our audit will:

  • Improve your bottom line by obtaining refunds from past billing errors
  • Lower future costs by optimizing rates, which enhances the profitability and value of your property
  • Provide a “safety net” for your organization’s own review process so that opportunities are not overlooked
  • Identify hidden opportunities that are extremely complex and almost impossible to verify yourself
  • Capitalize on billing reduction opportunities by taking advantage of exemptions and discount programs

Because we periodically re-audit accounts, any future errors or rate change opportunities will be discovered in a timely manner.

How We Secure the Largest Refunds and Future Billing Reductions


Ambitions concept with businessman climbing stairs

Since our founding in 1990, we have audited tens of thousands of accounts and obtained hundreds of millions of dollars in savings for our valued clients nationwide. We are proud of our 80% success rate and are trusted by Fortune 500 companies, manufacturers, hospitals, governments, hotels, and educational, residential and commercial properties.

Unique Methodology

Although every audit is different, our approach remains the same. We scrutinize each billing component to confirm that the bills reflect the utility’s tariffs, rules, and regulations, and verify that the client is billed at the best available rate.  We also compare the building’s usage to that of other similar buildings in our extensive database to uncover billing discrepancies.  A site survey is performed if warranted.

What Our Clients Are Saying...

American Utility Consultants has secured over $1 million in refunds and ongoing billing reductions.  They are knowledgeable, thorough and persistent, and we would enthusiastically recommend their services.

Weill Cornell Medical College

I’m shocked.  We never dreamed it would pay off the way it has.  There was a lot of sloppiness, such as misreading of meters and overestimated bills.


- Nicholas DeCarlo, Environmental Compliance Specialist
United States Postal Service

I have used American Utility Consultants for many years and am thrilled with their results.  They discovered payments not being posted and obtained a discounted rate that will result in savings year after year, without our having to make any changes in usage.   They are a pleasure to work with, and I highly recommend American’s services.

- Louis Trimboli, Sr. Real Estate Manager
CBRE, Inc. 

I would like to express our gratitude for your extraordinary success on recovering refunds and billing reductions. The results have been remarkable.  Not only have you obtained refunds for previous years, but you have also helped us to save money in the future by obtaining lower rates.
