The UtiliChoice Core Four
Each segment of the UtiliChoice Core Four provides opportunity to drive down energy costs. Competitive Electric and Natural Gas supply offers one of the greatest opportunities to save and the vast majority of commercial and industrial customers have already made the switch, while new market opportunities arise on a continual basis.
With the electric grid under stress as demand grows, the heat intensifies, and the government effects the shutdown of older polluting sources of energy, utilities are turning to Demand Management to balance the system. Consumers can choose to reduce consumption during stress events and get paid for cutting back.
Another essential element in driving down your cost is found in Efficiency upgrades. There are rebates and incentives available for a broad menu of efficiency improvements.
None of these are Set-it-and-Forget-it matters. It takes a team of dedicated personnel to stay up-to-speed and keep your savings in high gear.
While it’s not impossible to get a lower price on your own, the circumstances would likely need to be unique. The rule generally applies that the best pricing is offered to the largest load volumes and being that the retail sales of energy is tailored to the outside broker model, there are not a large number of accounts that would more greatly benefit by being on their own. If this is the case for your business, UtiliChoice can point this out to you and show you the difference between going it alone and creating a group.
FAQ: Will we get a better price by combining multiple facilities?
ANSWER: Almost always. The reason is that energy is just like any other retail purchase. The benefits in economies of scale apply here as well. Buying electric, gas, or installing efficiency upgrades in larger quantities drives down costs.
