Drawing from historic usage data taken from your local utility company, we create a customized Load Profile for your company that outlines how much energy you consume and when. This helps us to gain an excellent understanding of what energy product might be right for you.
Your Load Profile is then submitted to many national suppliers and generators with a detailed request for proposal (RFP). Each of these companies then has a limited amount of time to submit their bid for your business. The resulting bids are then presented to you, along with some insight about past and future market conditions. You then have the power to choose who your next electricity supplier will be.
Seasonal Hedging ProgramWholesale energy purchasing through the New England ISO exchange is easy and transparent with our Seasonal Hedging Program.

No Premiums. Purchasing wholesale energy without premiums or mark-ups will give you a clear picture of what the actual cost of energy is on an hourly basis, and enable you to make decisions in the future to lock in at a favorable rate.
Seasonal Hedge Possibilities. You have the ability to shop for fixed price hedges in coming months. This means that you are able to choose in future months whether to lock in a portion or all of your usage at a favorable rate.
