When it comes to deciding between natural gas or electricity suppliers, the options can be overwhelming. Should you buy through a third party supplier? If so, how do you choose? And how do you know if you’re getting the best rate or product for your business? Do I use a broker? We have energy efficiency work to do, can a broker help me? Before you give up on the energy procurement process altogether, here’s something you should know:
Most energy brokers deal with just procurement of energy. They lack the ability to look outside the box and provide value to you beyond price. Unlike a traditional broker, as a full-service energy consultant, Titan Energy offers demand-side management and efficiency services, electricity and natural gas procurement, on-site generation and data management. We are one of the only full-service energy consultants working throughout North America.
If you are in the market for energy procurement, here are 10 things to look for so you can reduce costs and increase net operating income.
Both Sides Of Procurement
Titan Energy is able to bring a unique combination of skill sets to our clients to help more effectively manage their energy costs Titan helps clients manage the supply-side (procurement of electricity and natural gas) as well as the demand-side (working to reduce the amount of energy used).
Think of Titan Energy as an extension of your team. You can free up your financial/procurement personnel from the task of crafting an effective energy management strategy. Our process provides you with data that you can use to control costs, identify trends and eliminate waste.
Access to a dedicated team of energy analysts can help you evaluate your changing energy needs and answer any questions you have along the way, simplifying the complexities of energy management. Having this type of resource available ensures you’re not being overcharged by your utility company and helps you find ways to manage your energy usage to save even more.
At Titan Energy we listen to your company initiatives and goals to custom tailor solutions which includes a top competitive option for suppliers and product offerings in your region. We ensure that you are able to get the best available rate from a vast supplier network plus we may determine introducing building control systems, replacing a boiler or installing a solar, combined heat and power (CHP), fuel cell project would make the most sense. If a broker works with only a few suppliers and can’t understand the demand and on-site generation options, they don’t have a clear picture of the whole energy market.
