Looking to Save Budget Dollars? Stop Your Utility Overcharges

Programs and Resources

Three out of four long term care facilities are being overcharged for one or more of their utilities. Those overpayments don’t come with better service or any other benefit. It is just unnecessary money being spent at a time when every dollar counts. The good news is that putting an end to the overpayments is easy. 

Cleary Energy is a AHCA/NCAL preferred provider and has recouped on average 4% to 8% savings on utilities for long term care facility customers, and members have good things to say about their results. Here are some examples of how nursing facility, assisted living and ID/DD members have saved with Cleary Energy:

  • Cleary Energy worked with Kentucky Electric Company to find the most beneficial rate for a nursing facility. As a result, a new meter was installed, and the utility rate was changed producing an annual savings of $46,000. Total savings of $138,000.
  • Cleary Energy performed an audit for a small Kansas assisted living community. As a result, the facility received a retroactive savings on electric, natural gas, and water of $6,000 with an annual savings continuing at $200 a month. Total savings of $13,200
  • Cleary Energy performed an audit for a small group of Tennessee IDDs. The IDDs received a retroactive refund of $4,300 on their water bill with an ongoing monthly savings of $120. Total savings of $7,900

Cleary Energy performs utility bill audits by examining utility, supplier, and government charges on utility bills to obtain refunds and/or credits and rate reductions. Specifically, Cleary Energy audits a facility’s electric, natural gas, propane, heating oil, diesel fuel, water, sewer, and telecommunications bills.   

The program is designed to save AHCA/NCAL members significant money on their utility bills without adding new expenses to their budgets. Cleary Energy guarantees savings or its auditing services are free. Cleary Energy’s fees are based on facility savings on their utility bills.   

The program is simple. AHCA/NCAL member facilities enter into an audit agreement with Cleary Energy, which is a shared savings agreement that lasts for a period of three years. If no refund, savings, or credits are received, the AHCA/NCAL member facility owes nothing to Cleary Energy for conducting the audit and AHCA/NCAL members will have peace of mind knowing that their facilities are not being overcharged for their utilities.     

The process for engaging Cleary Energy to conduct a utility audit also is easy. Most of the information Cleary Energy needs for an audit comes directly from the utilities or suppliers.   

Cleary Energy’s long term care experience sets the company apart with over 40 years of long term care operational experience. That in-depth knowledge enables Cleary Energy to find the greatest costs savings on utility expenses for AHCA/NCAL members because Cleary Energy knows where to look for savings.
