What is an Energy Consultant?

Energy consultants have the knowledge and ability to help individuals and businesses save money and time when it comes to their electricity bills. We can help discover which energy company, rate, and plan best suits your needs, saving you stress and keeping your payments as low as possible.

Why Hire an Energy Consultant Instead of Signing up for Electricity Myself?

The behaviors of the energy market tend to be volatile, leaving non-experts unaware of the very hidden savings. We have over 20 years of combined experience negotiating, building relationships, and navigating the energy market. Not to mention, our energy consultants have tricks to save you more money with tax exemptions and bill audits. Our experts work on your behalf to potentially uncover hundreds in some cases thousands of dollars depending on the size of your business.

So the real question is, do you have that kind of money to lose?

Who uses Energy Consultants?

60% to 75% of businesses use energy consultants.

What are Smart Meters?

Smart meters, also called advanced digital meters, are the equivalent of a home’s electricity nerve center, connecting it to the smart grid and enabling consumers to have better control over their usage and spending.

Why do we use natural gas as a primary electricity source? 

There are many reasons. Most new electricity generators run on natural gas, because gas is cleaner than many other conventional electricity sources. Most new housing construction includes natural gas heating, in large part because gas has historically been cheaper than oil for home heating

Why does natural gas have such an impact on electricity prices, even on renewable electricity markets? 

The short answer is, because it can. All energy markets move up and down together, in part because all forms of electricity — coal, nuclear, wind or natural gas — sell into the same market. All electricity sells into the same power pool, and all retail suppliers buy out of that power pool.

What is the difference between Traditional Meters and Smart Meters?

Traditional meters measure how much electricity your household consumes and requires your Transmission and Distribution Service Provider (TDSP) to manually read it. The usage data gathered is reported to your Retail Electric Provider to determine your usage for the month. Smart meters capture data every 15 minutes, giving you consistent information about your electricity usage. As a result, action can be taken almost immediately to reduce consumption and cost.
