Today, we’re going to talk about licensing an energy audit business. Unlike other types of companies, energy auditing consists of a very unique business model: one of recovering lost funds and/or finding the right price in the future.
Unfortunately, overcharges happen all the time.
Take the example of “Washington City Council refunds $64K to overcharged utilities customers,” where customers were over billed month after month, because the city had previously annexed areas outside the city limits but had not lowered their rates.
In other cases, the mistakes are never caught at all.
That’s where energy audit businesses come in.
What does an energy audit business do?
An energy audit business reviews bills and fees paid by clients to utility companies, then looks for areas in which they may have been overcharged, both now and in the future.
What makes this model so special?
Unlike other business models that focus on making money by selling a product, an energy audit business reclaims money for a client.
Not only does it give you the opportunity to address inequalities in utility billing systems, it allows you to approach customers with new information that benefits them.
And, for your customers, there is absolutely no risk in hiring an energy audit business.
Because if you don’t recover their funds, you don’t make anything.
What are the benefits of owning an energy audit business?
First, you get the freedom that comes with owning any business. But with energy auditing, you get added freedom of being able to serve any of the millions of potential clients located all over the United States.
In fact, any company using utilities may be a potential business opportunity. This includes:
- Hotels, apartment buildings, and condominiums
- Schools and universities
- Sports stadiums
- Healthcare facilities
- Office buildings and corporations
- … and more!
