Thank you for your service, sacrifice and patriotism.

Energy Conservation Programs

Across the Department of Defense, energy conservation programs are underway with a goal to reduce our overall energy consumption in the United States by 20 percent, ultimately reducing our dependency on foreign energy. Why Go Green? Conservation is not only the way of the future, but energy conservation is good for YOUR community. Millions of dollars are annually spent at military installations on residential utilities. Through conservation, energy savings are re-invested into family housing for improved housing renovations, neighborhood centers, playgrounds, resident activities, etc.

We have developed a program based on fairness where Soldiers are responsible only for their consumption. Just like Soldiers are leading the fight against the global war on terrorism, we now see Soldiers and their Families being good stewards about saving our nation’s energy.

Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) Each service member receives a Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) which includes an amount to pay for your rent, utilities and personal property insurance. Prior to housing privatization the entire amount of BAH paid for your housing.
Baseline/Utility Allowance In accordance with the Department of Defense guidelines, a baseline/utility allowance is established based on a particular home or like homes.
Buffer Some installations have included a bufer zone which surrounds the baseline. (A buffer or limit may be used to give additional baseline incentives). This baseline/utility allowance (UA) may vary according to installations and neighborhoods.
Conservation Incentive The baseline/Utility Allowance (UA) program provides an incentive for you to conserve energy and save money.
Utility Statement On a monthly basis you will receive a utility statement (bill) reflecting your usage, and the baseline/utility allowance (UA).
Bill If your metered usage is greater than the baseline you will be responsible for the difference of your metered usage and the baseline/utility allowance.
Rebate If your metered usage is less than the baseline/utility allowance you will receive a credit (rebate) for the difference of the amount you used in comparison to the baseline/utility allowance (UA).

Under the new Conservation Programs, you receive a monthly conservation statement from National Utility Group. These statements will include your meter readings, the amount of your consumption and where you stand (including your buffer) in relation to your established baseline.


Your home is grouped with the same type or similar homes to determine the energy baseline for each type of home. This is done by using your home’s attributes such as size, age and location. The average baseline is calculated monthly. The monthly calculation takes into consideration several factors including removing homes that may be vacant. Your average baseline is then calculated for homes similar to yours.
A 10% buffer zone is applied above the baseline to provide Families with the opportunity to receive a “no action required” notice on their statement, or no payment is due. Families consuming above the baseline and above the additional buffer zone will receive a “balance due” notice on their statement, meaning a payment is due. Families conserving under the baseline will receive a rebate check or reward statement* for their conservation efforts.

Municipalities

Reject imaginary limits.

Let us help you create a new financial ecosystem. Billions of dollars are lost annually due to the inadequate adoption of financial technologies for financial transactions management whereby mismanaged, aging receivables quickly turn revenues into bad debt and ultimately into losses. The primary reason for this outcome is the lack of a single enterprise solution that can manage every aspect of the revenue management life cycle process across all business units in unison. Our platform, through the lens of data intelligence, combines billing, CRM, payments, collections, reporting, meter management, workforce management and more in real time. Give the members of your community the service they deserve with native mobile apps for billing, payments, consumption management, and dynamic web interfaces.

Traditional platforms are stand-alone, independent systems that don’t share common technology and cannot communicate dynamically with one another, leaving business units separated. This leaves entities with old, stale financial data, making it impossible to both manage aging receivables and avoid uncollectable debt. A Financial Ecosystem resolves this problem. A Financial Ecosystem is a battery of highly sophisticated proprietary fintech solutions that consolidate into one single Financial Platform. At NUG, We advance business and technology solutions to strategically enhance utility operations. Let us integrate with your legacy system and bring you tomorrow’s technology today by migrating your billing operations onto one robust, flexible, and concise enterprise platform.

By combining deep technical and industry knowledge with NUG’s world-class engineering expertise we are uniquely positioned to be the

solutions for our clients.
