WHY A SEASONAL OR PERMANENT SHIFT IN YOUR GRU NONRESIDENTIAL ELECTRIC RATE CAN SAVE YOU MONEY
All nonresidential GRU customers have a number of rate classifications to choose from. Rates can be chosen but GRU retains the right to change a customer’s rate classification as they see fit. GRU often opts for the rate that brings in the most money to the utility, not the rate that minimizes GRU customers’ bills.
Experts can inspect a facility, study the billing data and often deliver a favorable seasonal shift from demand to nondemand GRU electric rates at this time.
Moreover, many GRU nonresidential ratepayers are always on an unfavorable rate. Others fall off a favorable rate without notice, often after conserving energy, paying more for less.
Consult an independent expert to analyze your entire GRU bill from A-Z for savings.
There are tens of millions of dollars of claims outstanding against GRU – including a lot of refunds.
