Utility Billing & Cost Recovery

Using Livable’s Ratio Utility Billing System (RUBS), it’s easy to divide your building’s utility bills. Our system can allocate for water, sewer, trash, and more. It relies on multiple factors that depend on the utility, including unit occupancy, square footage, as well as in-unit and common area amenities.




Ratio Utility Billing System (RUBS)

Whether your property has multiple units varying in size, retail space, and/or common areas, we can customize allocation factors and billing frequency for your unique property and issue fair and accurate billing to each Livable resident.


Enjoy the precise tracking and real-time consumption alerts of submetering without the premium costs of installation. Livable partners with resellers and installers of compatible submeters to substantially lower your costs. The precise submeter data is used to inform the resident statement amounts. There’s nothing better than billing residents for what they actually use.


Smart energy usage doesn’t cost—it saves. When you install solar panels to power your building, you can offset common area electricity expenses and increase your bottom line. And the benefits don’t stop there! Contact us to learn more about what you can save, and more importantly, how you can earn, with solar.
