Electricity Supply in North America
Working with multiple power generators, whether fired by natural gas, coal, hydro, nuclear, or with deregulated utilities or renewable energy groups, Bmark Energy utilizes its supplier network for the best pricing/terms desired. When coupled with our market intelligence analysts, the pricing and terms provided are the best of both worlds. We leave the competition in the dust.
Bmark Energy works with many electricity generators and suppliers and we are acutely aware of major pricing differences among them. Here are three examples:
Fixed and Indexed Quotes are too High
Ask your supplier for a 12, 24, or 36-month indexed rate and/or a fixed rate quote. Often, these quotes are inflated because a a supplier believes it can lower its rates if compared with another supplier’s lower offer. Or a company is “under contract” with its supplier and has nowhere else to turn. Ask us for our best competitive quotes before you purchase and you’ll see the difference.
Supplier Provides a Guaranteed Savings from the Utility
Normally the guaranteed savings provided by suppliers is very small, say 1-2%. The actual supplier costs may well provide between 0 – 20% savings off utility pricing. Guess who keeps the majority of the savings?
Supplier Quotes Shown on Supplier Web Pages
Often these rates are over-inflated and sold to market participants as “choice.” Why? Changing website pricing on a daily basis is too time consuming, so higher profit margins and higher pricing insulates against normal market swings.
Multi-Level Marketing Proposals
MLM programs pay multiple levels which normally increases customer pricing. Often these rates are far above market pricing and the MLM participants lack much energy knowledge.
“Fix Your Rate and Avoid Higher Pricing”
Many suppliers use this wording. The truth is you will avoid any higher pricing once you fix a rate, but often much of this pricing is considerably above market pricing. So, just fixing a rate without comparing what the “best” industry pricing is, will often leave a company paying rates above utility pricing.
“You Now Have a Choice”
In many instances, companies always have a choice as to who their supplier will be. But simply having a choice also opens the door to having the choice to pay higher than utility pricing. Do what makes sense.
