Choosing the lowest rate on paper doesn’t always mean paying less in the long run.


When pieces of the price vary, it’s difficult to make a true rate comparison. By understanding components of your total price, you can better identify when to pass components through instead of fixing them.

While fixed rates do present price certainty to customers, market developments have undercut conventional procurement wisdom.

Over the last decade, transmission and capacity charges have increased because it costs more to transport and store electricity, and utilities are investing billions to improve the grid. The COVID-19 pandemic further exacerbates these issues, especially capacity costs. As a result, non-supply fees have surged and customers in certain markets may be locked into spending more with a fixed rate.

Our pass-through solutions allow you to flex different parts of your energy costs to avoid paying more than your fair share of system charges. Then you can really maximize the value of market costs by balancing risk and opportunity.
