Energy Supply Procurement – Electricity & Natural Gas
As an independent consultant we represent the buyer, not the supplier, when choosing an electricity or natural gas supplier. Our experienced team will educate the customer on the opportunities available in the market while discovering what the customer wants from an energy agreement. Once our pre-RFP exploration with the customer is completed and agreed upon we move to executing an highly competitive and transparent procurement event.
Our staff invites only top-tier, licensed and reputable suppliers to competitively bid on our customer’s energy supply. We validate all bids to assure they represent the product terms requested by our customer. We evaluate the supplier agreement with the customer and confirm that the price is secured once the agreement is completed. We manage the relationship between the customer and supplier during the term of the agreement. We support our customer before, during and after the completion of an agreement.
Energy Market Intelligence
Our analysts monitor the energy market daily so our customers always have a reliable and reputable resource when exploring and planning their energy budget. Customers receive updates on the energy market from our experienced energy analysts.
After the completion of a supplier agreement our staff will set up target pricing for the customers next agreement. The market update may include indicative pricing for their next energy agreement so customers are always informed and ready to take advantage of the opportunities in the market. This market update helps customers stay within their budget for future years.
Budgeting & Forecasting
Our customers need to know what they will spend on energy now and in the future. We provide detailed energy budgets and forecasts to our customer so we can proactively work together as a team to meet their energy goals.
Demand Response is a voluntary program that compensates retail customers for reducing their electricity use, when requested by a grid operator, during periods of high power prices or when the reliability of the grid is threatened.
Renewable Energy Credits (REC's)
For customers who wish to lesson the environmental impact of the energy consumption can purchase REC's. REC's provide businesses a means to support renewable energy generation and meet clean energy goals without implementing on-site generation.
Energy Efficiency Solutions
Managing energy spend comes down to the price you pay for energy and the amount energy your business consumes. We have partners who can help uncover the incentive programs provided in most states to lower the amount of energy consumption.
We support our customers, whether it be through a charitable donation, a corporate sponsorship to a golf outing, membership to trade organizations, volunteering our time or buying a booth at a trade show. Further, we provide a single point of contact so our customers always know who to contact when questions arise. Our best way to generate new business is from word of mouth referrals from happy customers who are proactively telling others about their experience with Connect Energy Resources.
