Understanding the various components of a natural gas rate is the first thing we like to discuss with our new customers. Gas supply prices has two major components in most U.S. markets: natural gas, transport & capacity. 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 natural gas. Larger energy users (industrial) tend to float some, if not all, of these supply costs on the open market.
We have the market knowledge to guide you on your best options to achieve the lowest-cost natural gas with taking minimal risk. A typical negotiation for the purchase of natural gas supply typically follows the process outlined below.
