WHO WE ARE
ECORE is a utility savings and refund company based in Farmington Hills, MI. We specialize in commercial utility bill analysis, bill optimization, and four-year retroactive refunds. We help companies improve their cash flow by reducing electricity and natural gas costs by delivering high-reward savings options and refunds. Our goal is to save our clients as much money as possible, as quickly as possible, with no up-front costs. For thirty years, Ecore has been trusted by thousands of companies throughout Michigan, helping them make more money and reduce their utility expenses. 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 delivering impactful results. Our staff has decades of experience working both with and for these utility companies. The insights we have gained through these experiences have uniquely positioned us to effectively advocate for our clients. Our clients realize significant savings the first year, but more importantly, continue to save year after year.
A PROCESS TAILORED AROUND YOU
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.
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.
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.
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.
WHAT WE DO FOR YOU
There is absolutely no upfront cost or risk to our clients and it requires a minimal time commitment.
WHY DO YOU NEED US?
Overbilling is very common. Many accounts are set up on automatic payment 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.
Did you know that the utility companies are responsible for providing the system, service, and maintenance ONLY! They are not responsible for 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!
