The course introduces the learner to the utility supply chain system and the fundamentals of electrical energy. It then covers core utilities account management topics such as utility tariff structure, utility budget, bill verification, and tariff analysis. At the end of this course, you should be able to develop a utility budget, verify utility bills before payment and achieve utility cost savings by selecting the best tariff.
