Utility Contract Negotiation

The Story

A medium-sized customer with 11 small commercial buildings required utility contract negotiations and management for its electricity use.

They engaged an energy broker and Solution 105 for a quote. Both the quote and the annual commodity cost with the broker were much higher than Solution 105’s. The client decided to go with Solution 105, which saved them $14,717 annually and $73,584 over the five-year contract term.

Our fee to the client was $4,000, which was entirely recovered in savings in just over three months. We’ve provided the data in the chart below.
