Part of a business’s overhead, utilities costs include water, sewage, trash service, telecommunications, electricity and other utilities that are required to run a small business. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), the average monthly commercial electricity bill in Michigan is $641.50, and this figure doesn’t even account for other monthly business expenses. Fortunately, there are ways for your small business to cut back on overhead by reducing utilities costs through the Michigan Chamber of Commerce’s business savings programs.
