We’re proud to partner with Constellation to provide Utility Supplier opportunities and On-Bill Funding of electrical technology projects.  Check out their brief video, which explains the benefits of an Energy Audit and how your business can save money in operational costs.

Any building owner or facilities manager can attest to the fact that utilities are some of the most significant chunks of the organization’s budget.  With operations budgets constantly under review, keeping utility expenses in check has never been more crucial.

Harrington Electric Co. collaborates with Constellation and other leading energy providers in working with building owners and facility managers who have little time to master the complexities of multiple utility bills.

Through this collaboration, we can offer a FREE analysis your facility’s energy accounts via an in-depth auditing process, and provide a complete, no-cost energy utilization proposal that could result in significant savings for your business.

How Energy Audits Work

Typically, we’ll require a copy of your recent energy bill(s) and a signed authorization letter which allows the utility companies to release their rates and information.

With this data, our expert energy auditors can fully review your facility’s billing history and usage levels for electricity and gas, and provide suggestions such as LED savings in lighting and other recommendations.

Part of the audit process includes looking into rates and, wherever possible, finding more affordable options to suggest to your organization.

Typically, the audit process will also review tariffs, billing history, and meter reading errors. If better rates are available, we will expedite those offers and work to bridge the relationship with the energy supplier, while handling all negotiations on behalf of your organization. Finally, the consultant will present ongoing and sustainable recommendations for your organization.

It should be noted that we can conduct energy audits across multiple locations.  We just need the related utility bills for each audited site.

What is a Utility Bill Audit?

Think of an energy audit as an independent review of your utility bills. Typically, as part of this utility bill audit, we will look into invoice billing errors, rate plan changes, erroneous fees, and related items.

When billing errors are left unchecked, they can quickly add up, and greatly impact your bottom line. Even minor errors over time can end up costing businesses hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Harrington Electric Co. highly recommends Constellation’s “Efficiency Made Easy” (EME) program which allows businesses to pay for efficiency measures directly on their utility bill, off-book, with no up-front capital.  (Check out the video on this page.)
