Client Success: Water Management
“The Fusebox Team found an underground water leak that was not visible above ground. Their data monitoring of each of our water meters and insistence that we investigate, allowed our district to fix the leak before hundreds of thousands of dollars in building damage occurred.”
Prescott, Arizona Client
Client Success: Gas Management
“The Fusebox Team monitors gas and electricity for us. In reviewing gas bills related to one of our meters, they sensed that we were not being billed accurately at one location. They contacted our gas company and insisted that the meter be sent in for testing. It turned out that Fusebox was right. Our gas utility issued us a check for $160,000 for over-billings the last three years.”

Client Success: Solar Management
“We have solar and battery installations at several locations. It is important that we know if the batteries are discharging at the appropriate times to reduce KW allowing us to save on our electric costs. The Fusebox Team monitors these installations for us and regularly alerts us if a problem exists. Thank you, Fusebox Team, for helping us save.”

Client Success: Electric Management
“The Fusebox Team analyzed the electric rate plans at several of our locations using a utility rate calculator that they developed. This rate plan analysis identified over $200,000 in savings that would result by switching large meters to an alternate rate plan. And the great thing is, the savings are cumulative, occurring each year.”
