Understanding Fixed & Variable Rates
Understanding the advantages and disadvantages of different rates is an important part of selecting your plan with Town Square Energy.
A fixed price is a price per therm that will remain the same for a set period of time. This will give you the certainty that your price will not change during the term of the agreement; however, if market prices fall, you may have to wait until your contract expires to get a lower price. Unless you act prior to the expiration date in your contract, your rate may change to a monthly variable rate.
A variable price is price per therm that can change periodically, usually on a monthly basis. If you select a variable rate, the rate may change with market conditions, so, if market prices increase, your rate may increase. If market prices drop, your rate may decrease.
Commercial energy management encompasses the tracking, recording, control, and ultimately the reduction of energy consumption. This is important for a few key reasons.
First, there’s the cost. Wasted energy is wasted money. If you’re heating or lighting unoccupied floors or zones in your building, you’re running up your electricity and gas bills without reason.
Additionally, energy management also helps you save on equipment maintenance, repairs, and replacement by reducing wear and tear on your HVAC and other auxiliary systems. Saving on equipment costs and energy frees up capital that would be better invested in your business.
Finally, energy management controls improve the comfort of your facility. Whether providing adequate heating or cooling throughout your facility or ensuring your equipment operates at peak efficiency, your team can be the most productive in a comfortable, safe environment. This provides a direct return to your business through improved worker productivity or customers spending a greater amount of time and money, at your location.
