How to Choose the Right Energy Product for Your Small Business.

Energy costs—power and/or gas—are among the biggest monthly expenditures for our small business customers. In the following post we talk about the products and pricing options available to you through Constellation and how you can determine which will work best for your company.

Where to start in choosing the right Constellation energy product. As a small business customer, it’s important to know which of the following statements is most closely aligned with your goals:

  • I want to be able to budget with confidence.
  • I want more control over my energy strategy.
  • I want to take advantage of market prices as they happen.

Once you’ve determined which of those statements fits you and your business needs, then you can begin to look at the energy products offered.

How Constellation’s pricing is structured.

Our pricing will typically fall into one of two categories: fixed or variable.

Fixed pricing offers a set price per kilowatt hour for energy supply for a designated timeframe. Choosing fixed pricing means minimizing exposure to rising supply rates, predictable costs for managing your budget and the ability to plan ahead with confidence.  You may consider this product for your small business if:

  • You prefer predictability over variability
  • You want to budget for your energy spend
  • You cannot dedicate time to monitoring energy prices

Variable pricing, on the other hand, can change with the market.  Since energy is a commodity, your price can fluctuate monthly, so choosing a variable priced product means you will feel the ups and downs of the market.   The tradeoff is that it’s more difficult to set up a predictable monthly budget. This product could be right for your small business if:

  • You can accept that your energy costs  may vary on a monthly basis
  • You have a flexible energy budget
  • You prefer to actively monitor the energy market prices

Each option has its benefits, but the more information we have, the more we can help design an energy strategy that suits your business needs. Choosing an energy supplier is a big decision. And we want you to have all the information possible to ensure you make the right decision for your small business.
