We recently completed an electricity procurement auction for the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts – the first and oldest art museum and art school in the United States.
This organization comprises four separate locations and a multi-million dollar operating budget. As a non-profit, it pays close attention to every expense line in its operating budget.
Based on our market timing advice, and recognizing that they were buying at a historically low period in the energy markets, the Client decided on a 3-year contract, resulting in savings of more than $100,000 and – perhaps as importantly – budget certainty for the following 36 months.
That’s the advantage of working with a Licensed Energy Consultant, instead of just a broker. We know:
- WHEN to buy. We track energy market trends every day, and we advise you how and when to use the trends to your advantage.
- WHERE to buy. We know the strengths and weaknesses of every energy supplier in your area, and our proprietary auction process creates intense head-to-head competition among them.
- HOW to buy. We help you avoid the landmines in contract language, regulatory changes, tax exemptions, and billing errors.
You’ll see every available price and gain valuable insights into the key issues of energy procurement. All with minimal investment of your time.
If you are managing energy procurement for a non-profit (or a for-profit) organization, give us a call to see how we can reduce YOUR operating costs.
