As is the case with any market-driven industry, it would be really nice if there were a way for you to know what’s going to happen next in the market before it actually happens. If you could know which way commercial electricity prices will shift in the future, you could nearly guarantee that your business always has the lowest possible rate. It would effectively drive all the risk out of your commercial electricity decisions.
But, here’s the thing about the commercial electricity crystal ball—it doesn’t exist.
We operate in a futures market. At the end of the day, no one knows with certainty what will happen in the market in the coming weeks, months or years. And, as much as we wish we had a psychic on staff who could tell us which way the commercial electricity winds will blow before the market moves, we don’t.
In the past few weeks, this blog has covered a variety of topics that impact the cost of commercial electricity: weather, the natural gas market, PUC regulatory changes, heat rates and more. At any given point in time, there are easily at least half a dozen factors influencing the price of commercial electricity rates. And those rates are rarely stationary. More often than not, they are trending up or trending down. To get the best possible rate for your business, you need to know what direction the market is headed.
And given that a competitively priced commercial electricity rate can save your business a significant amount of money, it’s important that you use the best resources available to lock in the lowest possible rate.
While we don’t have a psychic on staff here at Live Energy, what we do have is ten years of experience helping businesses like yours navigate the commercial electricity market and some of the top industry technology available. Our experience and technology don’t help us see into the future, per se, but our team of experts are able to use that technology and experience to help you lock down a low rate that will fit your business.
