A client recently came to us asking for a review of their business’s GRU electric bills. After finding and correcting numerous billing errors and overcharges, we found an interesting issue with the GRU bill connected to their residence.
Our client maintains an electric gate which opens to a road leading to their private residence. As seen here, a separate GRU meter is measuring electricity running this gate, and two small lights. During our review of the associated business accounts we discovered that this gate, leading to a private residence, was misclassified as non-residential by GRU.
Our office was able to move this account to the correct and much lower residential rate, cutting the GRU electric bill in half. We were also able to obtain a credit of $1,115.48 for improperly imposed sales taxes. You can see the results for yourself here.
This customer’s hen house was invaded because the fox (GRU) was left “guarding” the gate. If you want to protect your henhouse, contact our office for a free GRU Why Pay More analysis of your bills!
