What We Do

Texas Engineering Services is an engineering consulting firm focused on Energy and Utility Management. We help our business clients minimize energy and utility costs through our three main lines of business: Predominant Use Studies, Utility Bill Auditing, and Energy Efficiency Projects.

  1. Predominant Use Studies are used by businesses to obtain sales-tax exemptions on purchases of electricity and natural gas to save up to 8.25%.

  2. Up to 80% of commercial utility bills have errors, resulting in companies overpaying for electricity, natural gas, water, and waste services. We have partnered with Lumen Utility Consult, an experienced firm that has saved clients hundreds of thousands of dollars, to provide Utility Bill Auditing for our clients.

  3. With both a Licensed Professional Engineer and a Certified Energy Manager on staff, we can help business propose and execute energy efficiency projects.
