We have extensive experience performing Predominant Use Studies


We have performed hundreds of Predominant Use Studies for large and small companies in many industries including oil and gas, textiles, broadcasting, printing, food processing, medical devices, general manufacturing, and others. We have saved our clients millions of dollars!

The process is simple:

  1. We conduct a comprehensive on-site survey and gather detailed electrical and natural gas load information. This can often be completed in one day and will not disrupt operations at your facility.

  2. We complete the Predominant Use Study off-site. The study will be certified by a Texas Licensed Professional Engineer.

  3. We can assist you in obtaining eligible utility sales-tax exemptions and refunds. Or download our Step-By-Step Guide.

  4. If you change utility service providers, as part of our service we will certify any additional exemption certificates needed at no additional charge, as long as the study remains valid.
