What is RUBS Billing?

RUBS is an acronym for Ratio Utility Billing System. RUBS is a method of billing multifamily real estate and commercial real estate that distributes utilities to each resident based upon several factors. When residents are billed for utility usage, consumption significantly decreases.

How is RUBS calculated?

When using RUBS to calculate water bills for residents, the following are required:
• Occupancy of unit
• Square footage of unit
• Number of Bedrooms & Bathrooms
• Number of water fixtures

Is RUBS better than Submetering?

Submetering is the most accurate form of utility billing since it measures exact usage by residents. However, in some situations, it is not possible to install Submeters on the incoming water lines due to lack of space. In these cases, RUBS is the best solution.
