How to Choose an Energy Broker

Using an electricity broker will allow you to focus on your core business while your broker focuses on finding the best available market pricing for your electricity needs. The deregulated energy market is a real-time trading exchange (just like the stock or bond market) with pricing that is time sensitive and could change on an hourly basis.

Your energy consultant will be able to provide you with the most current best pricing, provide detailed analysis, and cost savings all in one place. At the Emex this is all done in a one stop shopping atmosphere. Locking in to take advantage of historically low rates is as simple as taking a nap.

A power broker can provide commercial businesses a must have substantial savings difference than if the business had to contact and negotiate a contract with several different suppliers. A reputable brokerage will have established trustworthy relationships with major electricity suppliers. Thereby, taking advantage of the relationships to enlist the greatest savings for their clients.

The competition and cut throat nature of the commercial energy markets has meant that it is essential for businesses to employ a business electricity broker in order to obtain the cheapest commercial electricity rates.

What many businesses don’t know is that it’s free and easy to switch.  In addition to the fact, your default utility will still maintain the lines, service, and emergencies along with monthly billing. What would happen in the event of a power outage?  You still would call your utility.

So, how is this process done?

Your energy broker will provide you with competitive pricing based on your organization’s usage, credit, and load factors. Contracts for each supplier bidding, terms of service ie: 6 months, 12 months etc…

Discuss and provide what is included in the pricing, such as, taxes, generation, transmission and go over each line item as shown on your bill. Do a comparative analysis of all suppliers bidding on your contract, and advise which offers the best pricing, terms, and savings.

Then you lock in your rate.

Several other factors such as the natural gas market, will allow the broker to negotiate with several providers to compete for your business, and in return provide you with the best possible rate.

Brokers are not in any way, shape or form associated with any major suppliers except on the most ethical business level.This allows brokers to give an actual apples to apples comparison of suppliers providing business owners unbiased and factual transparency in securing the best offer, and solutions for their customers.

The relationship between natural gas prices and electricity rates are often intertwined. With Natural Gas at historic lows. Now is a great time to lock-in to a low electricity rate for your business.
