Pitfalls of Natural Gas Procurement


Natural Gas Procurement - Slattery Energy Consulting Group - NY

Finding the right energy consultant for natural gas in New York City can help you save thousands of dollars each year on energy costs. When it comes to natural gas procurement, there are some pitfalls that need to be avoided so that consumers can get the most bang for their buck.


Not Being Up-to-Date

One of the most common pitfalls that consumers face when it comes to natural gas procurement is not staying updated with all the latest news on natural gas and energy costs. This is where an energy consultant can save you from getting a bad deal.


Not Taking Advantage of “Swing Tolerance”

A percentage of "Swing Tolerance" can be applied to a natural gas supply agreement to mitigate the risk of overuse and underuse. If an end-user believes their consumption will be greater or lower than their predetermined monthly quantities, they can pay a premium to contract for a 10% to 100% swing (above/below monthly volumes). These premiums vary depending on the swing % chosen; the higher the percentage, the higher the risk premium.


The Cost

Of course, the cost of natural gas procurement is always going to be the main deciding factor. However, hiring an experienced NYC gas consulting company can help you find the best natural gas supplier at an affordable rate. A reverse auction is where suppliers compete head-to-head for your business and it is the quickest way to the lowest price.
