We hope you have a fantastic Good Friday everyone! Did you know that when developing utility allowances, they do not necessarily have to be done by an engineer.

Did you know? If your housing authority is converting Public Housing properties to RAD-PBRA that RAD requires utility allowances to be calculated utilizing an actual historical usage.

Whether a household receives an allowance for a given utility service generally depends on the way the utilities are metered. Utilities can be metered in one of three ways:
Master-Metered, Check-Metered, and Individually Metered.

Consumption Allowances are provided for Check-Metered utilities.
Utility Allowances are provided for Individually Metered utilities.
No allowances are provided for Master-Metered utilities.

METER DEFINITIONS FOR UTILITY ALLOWANCES:

Individually Metered Utilities: Where utilities are individually metered, each household has a separate account with the utility provider and pays the bill directly to that provider. Individually metered utilities also are called "resident-paid" utilities. The PHA provides a utility allowance to the household through a reduction in the household’s monthly rent.

Check-Metered Utilities: Some PHAs install separate sub-meters (called "Check-Meters"), in addition to the utility-owned master meter, to measure consumption by individual dwelling units. These Check-Meters are owned by the PHA. The PHA provides each household a Consumption Allowance that it may consume without a surcharge. The PHA pays the utility provider for utilities used and surcharges the resident for excess usage.

Master-Metered Utilities: A master meter measures consumption for the building as a whole, rather than for individual dwelling units or households. Master meters are owned by the local utility provider. Where utilities are master-metered, the PHA pays the local utility provider for utilities used. In such instances, the utility costs are included in the basic rent levels established by the PHA, and no separate allowance is provided. However, the PHA may establish a "surcharge," an extra fee paid by residents for utility consumption for major appliances not seen as essential, such as a food freezer.
