Start recovering your utility costs today! As an alternative to submetering, Ratio Utility Billing Solutions (RUBS) allows you to easily charge residents for their percentage of the utility bill based on an industry-proven formula.
Because submeters aren’t feasible at every property (we wish they were!), this often leads many property managers and owners to consider RUBS as an alternative to recoverying resident utility costs.

Let Us Show You How to Save

Depending on your property’s specific needs and the complexity of your solution, we can help you determine which RUBS formula makes the most sense for you – whether that’s occupant per unit, square footage per unit, or a combination of the two.

The Benefits to YOU of RUBS

An effective and affordable solution to utility cost recovery.

No Up-Front Investment

Unlike submetering, ratio utility billing solutions don’t require an up-front investment or installation or the labor of reading meters regularly.

Cover Multiple Utilities

This one-solution covers all. Easily charge residents for their portion of the bill – fitting for Water, Sewer, Gas, Electric, and Trash.


There are a handful of formulas you can use to ensure every unit pays the appropriate portion of the utility bill, every time.

Spread Out the Costs

Allocating a percentage of the utility bill to each residential unit means you don’t have to absorb unnecessary costs, converting a net operating expense into a net operating income.

Share the Responsibility

When residents are responsible for their share of the utility bill, they take an active role in conservation. Reducing overall usage and costs for utilities like electric, gas, and water.
Note: RUBS billing is not as accurate as submetering, so this must be kept in mind as you communicate with your residents. In addition, some states do not allow RUBS billing so we can help you navigate this accordingly.
