Commercial properties, condo buildings and universities among those eligible for large refunds under current provincial government
TORONTO, May 10, 2018 /CNW/ - Thousands of Ontario businesses and not-for-profit organizations could qualify for sizeable hydro bill refunds ahead of June's provincial election.
Already, many have recovered millions of dollars in refunds following a 2015 Ontario Ombudsman investigation that revealed tens of thousands of billing issues with Ontario's largest utility transmission and distribution company.
Pursuing an energy audit after the investigation, a Toronto hotel has since recovered $276,000 in refunds for a single building alone, while universities and hospitals have obtained refunds in the millions.
"Unfortunately, hydro billing mistakes are common, and many businesses have overpaid on their bills, not realizing that they contained errors," said Jeremy Poteck, Founder and CEO, Poteck Power Corporation. "There are numerous refunds owed to unsuspecting businesses across the province today, but a change in government could change all of that," said Poteck.
Launched in response to the 2015 Ombudsman report, In the Dark, Poteck Power has recovered over $22 million in refunds on behalf of its customers to date. Approximately one-third of the company's complimentary audits for qualified customers reveal errors, with the majority averaging over $10,000 each.
Given opportunities to obtain refunds under the current Liberal government, Poteck is urging Ontario businesses to take action ahead of the upcoming election.
"The time is now for companies and organizations to take back the money that is owed to them as a result of hydro billing errors," said Poteck. "A refund that's available today under the current government may no longer be available after June 7."
A complimentary billing audit for Ontario businesses and not-for-profit organizations is available through Poteck Power, where fees are only charged when refunds are collected. For further information, visit www.poteckpower.com.
