Utility Bill Management: There are two primary options for bill management services:
The first option: The billing addresses are changed to directly come to ERC. Once the bills are received from the client, the data is entered into the ERC system, and they are audited. The bills with an AP file are returned to the client within 48 working hours to pay themselves, or through the optional ERC bill payment program.
The second option: After the client pays the bills, they are sent to ERC to audit.
Utility Bill Auditing: ERC reviews the utility accounts for errors, refunds, credits, and any future savings on the preceding 12 monthly bills and contracts. Our experienced auditors enter each account into our system to determine the billings are correct and ensure that the client has the best rates and services available.
Energy Procurement: ERC’s energy procurement process includes a competitive bidding process for the client’s natural gas and electric commodities. ERC evaluates the accounts to ensure the client receives the best supply rate or stays on tariff. ERC works with the suppliers and monitors the bills to guarantee accuracy. We will continue to monitor market trends and make recommendations to provide any further savings before a contract expiration or automatic renewal.
