Do Large Businesses Benefit from Variable Rate Electricity Pricing?

July 23rd, 2013

As a result of electricity deregulation throughout much of the northeast, business owners can decide where to buy their commercial electric service. The purpose of electricity deregulation is to lower prices and increase customer satisfaction by introducing competition into the market. The U.S. Energy Information Administration has prepared a detailed map that highlights which states have deregulated their electricity markets. Savvy business owners in PA, MD, NY, NJ, VA, DC—and other areas highlighted in the map—can and should shop around for a cheaper rate on electric service.

Variable Rate Pricing on Commercial Electricity

At UGI EnergyLink, we offer both fixed and variable rate pricing on electricity. Large commercial businesses—with high electricity use—can really benefit from our variable rate plan. Signing up for a variable pricing plan allows your electricity rate to change from month to month, depending on market fluctuations. Selecting this plan means you’ll probably pay a different amount per kilowatt hour every month.

This plan is very much suitable for larger, well-established businesses in the northeast. How so? This plan gives larger businesses a significant amount of flexibility and allows them to take advantage of potentially lower electricity rates by accepting a level of risk in the marketplace.

Best of all, transitioning to our electric service is easy—fill out our commercial enrollment form to get started.

Please do note that we also have a fixed rate pricing option available for our commercial electric service. This option may be more suitable for businesses that must meet specific budget criteria with a constant price for the entire period. By making UGI EnergyLink their electric provider, businesses have the option to lock in a low fixed rate on electricity.

Depending on your business’s unique needs, either plan might be most appropriate—call us to learn more.
