When it comes to efficiently operating a building, inaccurate utility metering and billing can have a drastic effect on profitability. Our comprehensive Energy Metering Services allow you to precisely measure consumption so that tenants can be billed in a timely, consistent and, of course, accurate manner.
This easy-to-implement service helps optimize energy usage, improves cashflow, results in fewer tenant complaints, and frees up your time so you can focus on managing your business. We are not a software billing package or meter manufacturer, we simply troubleshoot the process and generate a more streamlined billing system for your property managers.
Our reliable Energy Metering Solutions are designed to take the guesswork out of your job and provide accurate numbers about the energy usage in your building. This data can then be translated directly into actionable insights that can result in significant energy savings over time.
Accuracy / Data
Cross Platform Integration
Our comprehensive monthly metering services include:
Whether a building or facility needs to have meters read remotely or manually, on-site, utiliVisor has advanced applications to do it both ways.
A thorough and continuous examination of all bills to verify accuracy and determine usage and billing based on client leases, building agreements, and rates and tariffs.
Our advanced billing system service accurately verifies all tenant-related usage, creates invoices, and generates billing packages for payment to the facility manager.
Quality control is achieved through documentation and review of all changes during each monthly period, including tenant, meter and service changes.
A systematic process that confirms the accuracy of all billing and compares results with past trends. The results are then indexed against similar types of buildings and tenants in order to confirm that your facility is allocating costs correctly.
Prompt resolution of all energy or billing related questions and issues from tenants.
Aside from our monthly services, we also offer a wide array of advisory services to help your business get to where it needs to be.
We are a product agnostic company that will make sure your facility has the proper measurement tools installed so we can accurately track energy usage, including electrical, chilled water, domestic water, steam, and gas.
Ongoing meter calibration will ensure correct usage amounts and accurate billing.
Thorough electric surveys are performed in order to identify the correct cost distributions. Fuel and rate adjustments are also calculated in accordance with your utility rate structure and used to fine-tune client costs.
Electrical cost analysis helps determine energy usage and charges in relation to building common areas. This data is adjusted annually based on the previous year’s actuals and allows us to reconcile utility bills.
Our sophisticated web-based interface transfers metering and sub-metering data to the expert engineers at our Operations Center, where it is analyzed to provide accurate billing data and real-time energy use data to help predict future usage and costs.
Our in-depth financial analysis measures multiple variables over time, including operational efficiencies, weather data, and the fluctuating cost of utilities and provides budgeting tools for projected utility spend.
Accurate client/tenant metering is essential in recovering building energy costs. Our consultation services accurately measure usage in order to maximize cash flow.
While specific solutions are different for each client, we always employ the same strategic, four-step approach. This tried and true process optimizes our clients’ energy metering and billing services from day one and, most importantly, continues to yield reliable and tangible results over the long term.
Our initial assessment covers everything from reviewing lease documents and billing statements to testing meters for accuracy.
During this phase, utility bills, meter readings, and reports are audited and compared to determine any variations, exceptions or problems.
Accurate and timely tenant invoices are generated and a report recapping all charges and variations is prepared and checked for accuracy.
Monthly reports, including utility costs, versus revenue and tenant analysis (watts/sq ft. or BTU/sq ft.), are available online and can easily be exported into accounting software.
