How it Works
Our goal is simple: to secure overcharges on your utility bills.
STEP 1We analyze all of your electric, gas and/or steam accounts to uncover overcharges.
STEP 2We file claims with the utility companies to secure refunds for all existing overcharges.
STEP 3We find and provide any alternatives that will save you money on your future energy costs.
STEP 4We consult with you on any other energy related matters and offer our assistance and guidance.
URAC Corp. was established in 1975 by Vincent DiCeglio. Vincent worked for the Long Island Lighting Company for twenty four years before creating this unique business. His experiences as a customer service representative at LILCO made him realize there was a need for consumer representation. From 1975 to 1991 Vincent fought and won some precedent setting consumer protection cases. In 1991, he retired, passing the torch over to his son Douglas.Douglas DiCeglio joined the company in 1980, starting at the bottom and working his way up. Douglas’s skills in computer programming give URAC the ability to not only calculate the various utility rates, but he has designed a one-of-a-kind data management program that stores all of URAC’s clients utility billing information and also detects and alerts staff of possible overbillings. Douglas was promoted to Treasurer in 1985 and subsequently moved to the position of Vice President in 1988. In May 1991 Douglas became the principle owner and CEO/President.
