At Cost Containment Intl. (C2), we recognize that all properties are not the same in their usage of electricity. How much electricity is used, when it is used and the consistency of usage will all differ per company. It is these differences that create a world of differences in the quotes received from alternative providers.
As your energy consultant, we meet with you to review your utility bills, analyze any existing contracts and develop a strategy to reduce your current costs.
- We analyze how much energy you use, and how you use it, to determine your best plan.
- We know which providers/suppliers are most competitive in your market.
- We offer options and hedges beyond basic plans to reduce risk and/or increase flexibility, and tailor them to match your business model
- We continually analyze new bills to make sure savings do not get lost through supplier mistakes.
- We handle it all: the analysis, requests for proposals, presentations to the board and procurement of the provider.
We also understand that in the energy world, the lowest price isn’t always the best deal…
- Providers/suppliers break cost down into tariffs, fees, charges and taxes, and nobody does it the same way.
- Everyone wants to show you a “best” price, so no one wants to let you compare apples to apples.
- “Pass-through” charges may be “bundled,” unbundled or partially bundled in the price you see.
- They may add, and charge for, services which you don’t need.
C2 provides the expertise needed to read your bill, catch
any hidden fees, and remove unneeded services.
AND – we do more than broker a price.
We advise you on ways to increase savings through energy management:
- Low-cost: ways to manage your use so you’re using energy when energy is cheapest.
- NO-cost: ways to reduce use without impacting your lifestyle.
We help you with major decisions/choices:
- Timeframe: should you go with a plan for month-to-month, one year, two years, five years?
- Risk vs Predictability: where is your tolerance point?
- Fixed vs. Variable: where is the market at and where is it going? What’s the approach for you?
- Energy conservation: how much use can you comfortably cut?
- Services: which add value and which just add cost?
