Natural Gas is a significant expense for most businesses, commercial property owners and managers. Businesses that are able to successfully compare energy prices, control their expenses, and manage their budgets are more successful. At East Coast Power & Gas our clients range from small business owners to managers of large apartment complexes and Wall Street Firms. They trust us to help them save. Our approach is consultative. We review your specific energy and financial goals, help you decide whether to lock in or choose a variable rate, and develop an energy procurement plan tailored specifically for your business or commercial property. Right now, our New York-based customers get immediate and ongoing savings of sales tax on the delivery portion of their utility bills as soon as they sign up with East Coast.
Our commercial natural gas plans:
A fixed-rate plan has a set rate that never changes throughout the contract period. This can help you budget for your household. However if market prices fall you will need to wait until your contract ends to enjoy a lower price.
Variable rate plans run month-to-month, with no long-term contract or cancellation fee. The rate you pay per kWh/therm will probably vary from month-to-month. Your rate will go up or down, based on the market. Variable plans enable homeowners to benefit from falling prices, but they also carry the increased risk of potentially higher rates if commodity prices spike due to variable factors (natural disasters, cold winters, or adverse market conditions).
A Nymex+ rate plan is similar to a variable plan in that the price per therm can go up or down each month. The difference is that Nymex+ rate plans are tied to a publicly available price. This plan allows homeowners to lock in the transportation component of the gas price. The only piece that will fluctuate on a monthly basis is the cost of the gas itself aka “Nymex settle.”
