How can you fairly charge me for my usage if I don’t have a meter in my home?

Ratio Utility Billing (RUBS) is an allocation option when a community is unable to install meters due to the construction configuration. Consumption is calculated using a formula to determine each resident's utility expense. The formula is based on detailed information about your community, residents and general utility usage. This formula can be based on the number of occupants and/or square footage.
