While many customers try to cut their energy bills by focusing on efficiency projects, significant savings may be secured without capital or operational investment. By finding and fixing billing errors, and securing lower tariff rates, Luthin Associates applies its sophisticated understanding of energy invoicing and pricing to save money.
Through decades of experience, Luthin has developed a comprehensive bill reporting and analysis process that has recovered, or avoided, millions of dollars in energy charges. Its online energy management dashboard, Luthin Access, actively monitors energy invoices to ensure accuracy and enforcement of tariff as well as contract pricing.
To pinpoint errors, the dashboard runs monthly, quarterly, and annual consumption analyses by meter, account, and contract. Through access to our proprietary system, Luthin, and its customers, identify outliers based on usage, load factor, and other characteristics. For one customer, Luthin found incorrect tax payments that, when refunded, amounted to more than $700,000. This service also helps customers make informed decisions regarding their energy usage and purchasing strategies. To date, Luthin Associates’ efforts in bill auditing have recovered more than $20.5 million in errors for its clients.
