Electric and Gas Procurement

The deregulation of energy has provided new opportunities to save money and cut energy costs for today’s businesses. However, it has also created new challenges. Large companies now divert significant time and resources to assure they are deploying the most effective energy supply procurement strategy. Many small business owners still are not sure about what the best procurement strategy is for them; the advantages and disadvantages that can be realized in fixed vs. variable rate pricing, as well as the appropriate term to contract for.

U-Tel can assist companies of all sizes in better understanding the deregulated energy markets and how their business can take advantage of lower and/or fixed energy supply costs. In addition to consulting in this capacity, U-Tel performs detailed billing audits on current energy bills to identify errors on the present bills. U-Tel will then analyze contract options for electric and gas supply where these opportunities are available. The net benefit of both measures typically results in a significant reduction of energy costs and even a possible refund to the business.

As a result of our extensive involvement with utility providers in auditing energy nationwide, U-Tel has forged relationships with national energy suppliers. These partnerships afford U-Tel the unique opportunity to pass through volume pricing to our clients as an additional benefit of auditing with our firm. The best part is that we are compensated by the supplier, so the service will benefit your business at no out-of-pocket cost to you.

Additionally, this relationship allows for U-Tel to further assist national businesses in consolidating their energy procurement to one supplier across multiple markets. This allows for businesses to take advantage of volume pricing that they are typically not afforded when going through a bid-based purchase process in each market.
