About Us

Our Mission

Our goal was to provide a transparent, simple, and complete product for our customers.  That’s what we did.  Over time we developed an easy to understand evergreen agreement providing a running 12 fixed and guaranteed future monthly payments that cover ALL supply, distribution, fee and tax costs to provide our customers’ electric and natural gas costs.  We will contract for supply if and only if doing so is in our customer’s best interest.

Our Philosophy

Our company was founded by two people from different industries outside the energy business who arrived in a large energy company through acquisitions.  We liked the business in general and thought we could manufacture real value.  What we did not like was the large energy company business culture where business was done with counterparties instead of customers.  The company was in business to meet the needs of the company first and not the customers.  The deal parameters were complex and arcane; ceilings and floors, escalators and cost-plus sale of commodities.  We decided to invent and provide customers a real alternative to business as usual.

On the demand side (improvements to infrastructure to save energy consumption), the incentive was to build projects first and meet the customer’s needs second.  Through the use of standardized valuation tools and modeling that included the bias of the modeler, projects were routinely over valued to the benefit of the providers business and resume at the cost of the customer through underperformance.

We receive, review and record relevant bill data, pay all bills and deal with providers with questions and issues on behalf of our customers.  On the consumption side, we provide our customers full and fair valuation of all conservation projects.  We provide and review with our customers our actual calculations and provide guaranteed full value monthly credits before a customer spends any capital on improvements.

We accept no compensation from engineers or contractors for any work the customer elects to complete.  We are not a commodity broker and do not accept commissions or any other compensation from electric or natural gas suppliers. Our interest is in providing real value to our customers so they take advantage of our the program over the long term.
