No Risk, High Reward Utility Savings and Refunds!



ECORE privately owned utility savings and refund company based in Farmington Hills, MI. Our primary goal is to help Michigan companies reduce their energy expenditures to allow more revenue for future growth. We specialize in commercial utility bill analysis, bill optimization, and 4-year retroactive refunds. Since 1984, Ecore has been trusted by thousands of companies throughout Michigan, helping them save millions on their utility bills. Our strategy is to help companies enhance their bottom line by delivering high-reward savings and refunds. We have long-standing relationships with all of the Michigan Utilities and thorough knowledge of utility rules, regulations and tariffs to reduce rates and recover refunds. Our clients realize significant savings the first year, but more importantly, go on to receive impactful savings year after year. We are a contingency based, consumer advocates with over 30 years of utility bill expertise to empower business owners with insight to lower gas and electric costs for today and into the future.


1. Information

To start the process, we will need the recent billing statements for all accounts to be audited, completion of a services agreement and a company questionnaire. Ecore only needs one bill for each account. Our team will work with the utility provider to obtain a thorough bill history.

2. Analysis

Ecore’s energy analysts review all bills received and advise of any billing errors, incorrect applications, usage anomalies, duplicate billings or cost recovery opportunities. The statute of limitations enables us to petition for up to a 4-year recalculation of prior billings.

3. Benchmarking

Our Team then compares the current pricing structure against our market intelligence criteria such as company size, peak usage, industry, and other pertinent parameters. We use proprietory algorithms to company billing data with industry, company, and site-specific benchmarks.

4. Implementation

Lastly, after the potential savings are identified after the analysis, all of the necessary paperwork will be processed by Ecore in order to reclaim overcharges and adjust billing rates going forward. That’s it! You get a refund usually applied to your account as credit and in some cases, you have the option to receive a check.


Utility Expense Reduction & Rate Analysis
Ecore experts will conduct a thorough utility bill analysis and find the lowest utility rate option for you. We do this by finding current trends and developments in the industry and advise you and implement the most appropriate rate schedule and options for your needs and usage
Correct Utility Errors & Overcharges
The complexity of invoices and contracts can lead to utility errors and overcharges. We thoroughly examine all of your utility bills for billing errors, refunds, and lower rates, so that we provide every opportunity to reduce the utility costs to your company.
Money Saved


Overbilling is very common – most accounts are set up to autopayment without any serious bill review. Is this happening to your company?

We will uncover past billing errors and get your money back if you’ve been overcharged. You may be eligible for refunds, tax credits and lower rates going forward. With the right knowledge and support, you can achieve significant cost savings, both retroactively and proactively

We will make sure you are on the best rate and taking advantage of all available discounts and exemptions. If your company is not already taking advantage of a utility audit, rest assured your competitors are, and the refunds they are receiving are giving them a competitive advantage over you.

On average, our clients save up to 30% on their future bills!

We work on a contingency fee basis, there are no out-of-pocket costs for you. Our compensation is based on a percentage of the refund or savings that you obtain. If no refund or savings is received, then you pay nothing. This makes our service a true “win-win” proposition.

Maximize your company’s savings year after year and keep more money in your budget for other line items.

Finding billing errors is not something you should leave up to your accounting department. It requires a great deal of time, knowledge, expertise and resourcefulness to determine when and if any overcharges have occurred and to how much of a refund your business is entitled.

Make sure this is not happening to your company, and if it is, stop needlessly overpaying. It is as simple as your participation and sending us a recent bill.

There is absolutely no upfront cost or risk to our clients and it requires a minimal time commitment.


Did you know that Utility Companies are responsible for providing the system, service and maintenance ONLY!. They are not responsible and do not focus on optimizing your particular rate. When you sign up with a utility company, the automated system places you in a default option which might not necessarily be the best option for you. This is why we are able to save thousands for most of our clients by auditing their utility bills and we can do the same for you!
