A sushi restaurant submitted their utility natural gas invoices in response to Reliable Energy’s bill assessment program offered through the Michigan Restaurant & Lodging Association.
Our initial evaluation of utility invoices for this restaurant uncovered the following issue:
- The utility was passing through an undefined variable supply rate that was ~300% higher than it would have been with proper oversight.
At the customer’s direction, Reliable Energy facilitated the following utility account changes:
- The variable supply rate was converted to fixed rate with no exposure to market volatility.
With Reliable Energy’s assistance, the following results were achieved:
- Supply charges on their utility invoice were reduced by ~$7,500/yr vs previously charged amounts.
- Fixing the supply rate provided budget certainty for future billing periods.
