Saving Money through submetering

Frequently Asked Questions

Over the years we have had a great many happy customers. You can imagine that on our way there, we had many of them ask questions. There are many potentially confusing aspects to this service. That is why we have compiled a list of some of our most commonly asked questions.

Utility submetering is the new standard for utility management on properties with multiple tenants, whether residential or commercial. In the past, one bill for a utility would be sent to a property’s landlord. That individual would then have the difficult task of dividing out the bill based on square footage, or on a more complex algorithm, then divvying out bills, collecting them and paying the company themselves. What an enormous amount of manual work!

Managing the utilities for a property is only one of the many roles a landlord must perform, however, it can take a disproportionate amount of time and energy if the proper equipment and services have not been put into place. For landlords or owners who are responsible for multiple properties, the cost and time required to handle utilities at multiple sites can be enormous.

Yes! Submetering saves an average of 15 – 30 percent in energy consumption, a savings that is passed on to the landlord in time. While there is an upfront investment required to install submetering equipment, it has one of the fastest turnaround times in terms of return on investment among other energy savings upgrades or installations. And having clients held individually responsible for their energy use saves time too, another savings that is passed on to the property owner.

No, we find that once tenants are educated about the benefits of submetering, they appreciate the opportunity to save money themselves. Once submetering systems have been put in place, tenants have the opportunity to control their own energy usage and in doing so, control how much they must pay. Tenants welcome the opportunity to pay their fair share, especially when they have the opportunity to lower their utility bills.
