Utility Supplier Invoice Validation Services

Paying the correct amount for utility usage

Utility invoices can be confusing to say the least.  From incorrect commodity and third-party charges to estimated meter reads, or even the wrong meter appearing on an invoice.

A well-executed utility procurement strategy can be undermined if your utility invoices are incorrect.

“We have worked with First Energy Solutions over a number of years to assist us in developing an appropriate strategy for managing our exposure to fuel price fluctuations. This has involved facilitating the setting up of accounts with appropriate financial institutions and execution of the final trade. Their knowledge of the fuels market and the various price hedging mechanisms has proved to be invaluable.”
