Ratio Utility Billing Systems (RUBS)


Ratio Utility Billing Systems (RUBS) helps owners recover utility expenses without the effort of installing submeters. Based on the location of your community, RUBS may be possible for electricity, gas, water, or trash services. The benefits of a RUBS program are that it can be completely customized to your community’s unique needs based on unit square footage, and residency. It also helps residents conserve, since they have visibility into their share of the usage. RUBS is often a zero-cost program for the owner and can be combined with vacant cost recovery (VCR) programs to ensure you are recovering allowable expenses and increasing your net operating income.


Great Incentives

“Accurately monitoring each apartment home’s electrical usage gives greater incentive for residents to conserve energy, since they are paying for exactly what they use. During a one-year period, an average of 17% less energy was consumed in the submetered residences.”

Seamless Transition

“They have done an excellent job with our properties. They are very professional and have seamlessly transitioned many of our apartment buildings to the Ratio Utility Billing program, as well as setting up online automated meter reading and billing with our newer properties. I would recommend them to small and large property owners alike.”

Best Implementation

“I am very impressed with the level of attention given us as we transitioned to their platform. They addressed all our questions, thoroughly validated the data we supplied, and made certain our account was setup exactly as intended. One of the best implementations I’ve been through. Kudos!”
