Our Process

Strategic Energy Price Formation Plan

Step 1 Assessing Your Energy Profile: Understand your facilities, their usage and the overall load profile, along with billing, costs and potential risks.

Step 2 Creating a Custom Strategy: Our approach is never one-size-fits-all, but instead tailored toward your budget and risk tolerance.

Step 3 Suppliers Indicative Pricing: Through our in-depth understanding of Energy Markets throughout ERCOT, we know which suppliers offer the best prices and products. As such, we will request indicative pricing from the market to estimate where the market is settling for your particular load.

Step 4 Finalize Supplier Contract Terms: Narrowing down the supplier list to three to five suppliers will enable us to focus on ensuring apples to apples offers and that you benefit from a highly competitive process.

Step 5 Set-up Plan for Execution Process: The final stages prior to the potential award will involve contract negotiations. We will ensure a hyper-competitive environment up until, and on the day of contract execution and will provide assistance with your board’s information requirements, as well as provide assistance with your necessary internal document evaluations.

Step 6 Evaluate and Award: All of our pre-work makes evaluating and selecting the best value available a simple and easy process, providing suppliers with an ideal situation to compete for your business, ultimately leading to the execution of an agreement with the preferred supplier.

Step 7 Ongoing Service and First Bill Audit/Switch Report: Our service does not stop at the contract execution; rather, we ensure the terms of the contract are met throughout the term of your contract. We also coordinate the onboarding process with the winning supplier, including a switching report if needed. In addition, we will also audit your first invoices to ensure the supplier’s billing meets your desired format and there are no hidden pass-through charges.

Step 8 Continued Market Intelligence: In a volatile and quickly evolving energy complex, we will monitor the market, proposing new strategies when needed to make sure we continuously generate value to improve your bottom line.
