TBUtilityTroy and Banks, Inc., is dedicated to helping VHHA members reduce operating costs by identifying billing discrepancies and finding avenues for rate and expense reduction. Troy & Banks is a utility and telecommunications consulting firm that helps organizations recover refunds for billing errors and make sure that those errors do not re-occur in the future. The company’s performance-based approach means there are no fees unless billing errors are identified. Troy & Banks also provides energy procurement and curtailment services and green energy programs to keep your organization up-to-speed with the ever-changing energy market.

VHHA members can participate in audits of their utility and phone accounts with no up-front cost or long-term agreements. Troy & Banks only charges a fee if a refund or savings is produced. As an added incentive, Troy & Banks has reduced its contingency-percentage for VHHA members from 50 percent to 40 percent. That means that you keep 60 percent of the refunds or savings that are found!
