Understanding the various components of an electricity rate is the first thing we like to discuss with our new customers. Power supply prices have three major components in most U.S. markets: electricity, capacity, and transmission. End users have the option to float these components on the open market, fix all components, or do some combination of both. Most smaller commercial energy users (restaurants, hotels) typically look to fix these supply components into a fully-bundled fix rate for electricity. Larger energy users (industrial) tend to float some, if not all, of these supply costs on the open market.
