Unfortunately, you could be paying for hidden meter costs in your utility bills without even realizing it! If you haven’t already, check out our last energy management blog to learn about a couple common hidden meter costs, and keep reading to learn more:
#3. There are meters on unused machinery or buildings.
Some meters have recurring charges that are simply estimated by the utility company. If you have decommissioned machinery or even buildings, they could have meters that are being charged in this way, which means that you are paying for utilities you aren’t even using. Make sure that service is turned off to any and all decommissioned machinery or buildings.
#4. There are unusually high charges on your bill.
If you see a random spike in your meter or utility bill, you could have a leak or misused equipment on your hands. By regularly maintaining your equipment and systems, you’ll be able to catch these issues before they drive up your utility bills.
As you can see, there could be many hidden costs associated with your meter that lead to higher utility bills.
