The Opportunity

For most organizations, natural gas expenses are much less than their power expenses.  However, natural gas is increasing the ‘fuel-of-choice' for applications ranging from power generation, to industrial and commercial applications.  Many organizations pay a significant amount of money each year for natural gas and as these costs increased dramatically during recent years, it became very important to focus on controlling natural gas expenses just like power expenses.  Therefore, organizations are becoming increasingly interested in obtaining the best natural gas rates available and optimizing their consumption.

The Challenges

Although regulated, local and cooperative natural gas providers typically have minimal pricing options, there are a number of alternatives that should usually be evaluated by customers of these providers.  Customers in deregulated areas or near alternative provider supplies need to invest the time necessary to evaluate their natural gas needs proactively in order to negotiate the best pricing alternative for each specific situation.

Because of the significant investments in personnel and technology required to manage natural gas consumption, most organizations are unable to confirm (and in many cases, significantly impact) their actual usage.  However, there are many cost effective ways to manage natural gas consumption.
