Commercial Electricity for Hotels in Pennsylvania

June 24th, 2014

Energy usage accounts for the second largest cost in hotels (second after the guests) and is the main contributor to the property’s carbon footprint. And as a hotel property manager, you’ll likely see (and pay for) that energy usage on your monthly electricity bill.

Energy usage is something you can control within your day-to-day hotel operations, but in Pennsylvania, thanks to a deregulated commercial electricity market, you can also control the rate at which you pay and which company you receive service from.

Electricity Deregulation & Benefits for Hotels

By managing or owning a hotel in Pennsylvania, you have the option to select from among multiple service providers—such as UGI EnergyLink. No longer are you bound to any utility for your electric bills and supply. The purpose of electricity deregulation is to lower prices and increase customer satisfaction by introducing competition into the market.

By looking into your electricity rates with suppliers in your region of Pennsylvania, hotel owners like yourself are given the opportunity to take advantage of a competitive market and lower rates. Even saving a few pennies on your kWh (kilo watt per hour) rate can save your hotel thousands on the bottom line each year.

Hotel Electricity Needs

When managing your hotel, you’re dealing with not only check-in schedules and reservations, room service and kitchen needs, and staff management, but also the comfort of your guests while they are in their rooms. Electricity is included in all of this—so your rate and which electricity supplier you have in Pennsylvania should be a huge factor!

Your hotel uses electricity with almost every operation, including:

  • Space heating
  • Lighting
  • Water heating
  • Refrigeration
  • Computers
  • Cooking
  • Ventilation
  • Cooling
  • And more

When is the last time you looked at your electricity rate compared to the competitive PA market? Call us today to find out how much you could save with UGI EnergyLink!

Pennsylvania Hotel Electricity Suppliers

When you’re shopping for electricity, you want to make smart decisions for your hotel. Controlling costs can sometimes be the toughest part of the job. At UGI EnergyLink, we’re here to help. We have over 127 years of experience providing electricity to hotels and other businesses throughout Pennsylvania and can provide you with the opportunity to save money on your monthly energy bills when you switch!

As a result of electricity deregulation, UGI EnergyLink can offer two pricing arrangements for hotel, travel industry, and other commercial electric customers: fixed pricing and indexed pricing. Fixed pricing is an excellent option for property managers who must meet specific budget criteria with a constant price for the entire period. Indexed pricing is suitable for hotel owners who are able to accept some level of risk by taking advantage of market pricing. Wholesale market conditions will dictate whether rates go up or down.

To determine the best electricity pricing option for your PA hotel, we will:

  • Review your current buying habits
  • Develop a plan for purchasing electricity at more favorable rates or terms than you might get with your utility company or electricity marketer
