Performance Utility Management and Billing was founded in 2013 by two property owners and a utility manager. They experienced firsthand how multifamily property management companies and individual property owners struggled to juggle operational duties and carve out time for tedious utility management obligations. With the combined knowledge and skill set of the team, it was clear that they could provide the expertise that is essential to companies and property owners alike.

Our purpose, in recent years, has been adjusted to not only include property management conveniences but also a responsibility to the communities we work in by focusing on eco-consciousness. Performance Utility Management and Billing services are designed to help multifamily portfolios encourage energy and water conservation as well as recovery of utility expenses. It is our mission to make a difference for our clients and the world we live in.
