Natural Gas Programs
NYMEX Plus (Variable) Solution
→ Allows the customer to secure a fixed-price for non-energy costs (delivery) while keeping a variable market rate for the commodity portion
→ Customers can convert a portion of their load into a fixed-commodity price, spreading risk over multiple layers while the rest of the load remains market-based
→ Commodity prices are tied to NYMEX, a commodity future trading exchange
→ Ideal for customers able to bear the risk associated with market price volatility
Fixed Price Solution
→ Allows businesses to secure a set price per MMBtu for the term of the contract
→ Best suited for customers looking for budget certainty and minimal price risk
→ Price and budget certainty comes at a cost. Suppliers add a risk premium for the risk they assume
Tip: Working With a Broker to Buy Natural Gas
A broker can provide you valuable guidance when it comes to buying natural gas, but it’s essential to work with someone you can trust. Before you sign anything authorizing a broker to work on your behalf, insist on transparency. Ask them how much they will charge for their services. If they tell you they don’t charge a fee or that the supplier pays them, find a new broker. They aren’t working for free and they don’t work for the supplier.
