Commercial Energy Options

We offer a host of commercial energy options to our customers, including:


Deregulation of commercial energy gives Pennsylvania and Maryland business owners more options when it comes to choosing an electricity supplier — and that can result in more affordable business energy rates. Shipley Energy supplies electricity to organizations served by many of the top utilities in Pennsylvania and Maryland. We also have the expertise to assist you in evaluating your specific electricity requirements and selecting a pricing structure that works best for your business.

Natural Gas

Shipley Energy can also help you take advantage of natural gas deregulation, enabling us to serve as a dependable, cost-effective natural gas supplier to Pennsylvania and Maryland businesses. We can provide natural gas at fixed rates to provide greater stability in this occasionally volatile energy market.

You can also opt for a variable structure, where the current market rate determines your fuel cost. And if you’re considering making the transition to gas from another fuel source, we can facilitate a smooth, seamless conversion process.


At Shipley, we take our commitment to your operations seriously. We work hard every day to provide smart pricing and innovation. That’s why we offer paperless statements, automatic order fulfillment and 100% electronic transactions. Save your company a lot of money and hassle by picking a commercial propane service that makes your day-to-day better and more affordable.

Heating Oil/Bioheat

Heating oil has been a Shipley Energy staple since the early days of our existence. Heating oil is now cleaner than it has been in decades, which enables our commercial energy customers to meet their heating requirements while being good stewards of the environment. We now offer Bioheat, a revolutionary heating oil formula that combines traditional fossil fuel with biodiesel made from recycled restaurant oils.

Bioheat burns the same as fossil fuel, only much cleaner.

Wholesale Fuels

None of the other business energy suppliers in the region can match Shipley Energy when it comes to buying and delivering wholesale fuels. We've been a leading reseller for many decades because of our fair and flexible pricing, excellent service, on-time deliveries, and an extensive assortment of value-added options.

Thinking About Switching Commercial Energy Suppliers?

Whether your business runs on propane, heating oil, electricity, or any combination of the above fuels, switching suppliers is a big decision. You don't want to end up paying more than you should or committing to a contract that doesn't offer the level of service you need.

At Shipley Energy, our first goal is to educate our customers. We want you to make an informed choice when you switch or compare business energy suppliers — we're convinced that, when you do, you'll see for yourself the benefit of working with us. Here are some things you consider as you shop around:.

  • Market pricing — Knowing the market price of energy in your area — and the historical trends over the year — gives you a baseline to compare an energy suppliers' offers. Be sure to check for your specific ZIP code, as location plays an important role in what's available and how much it costs.
  • Price structure — A pricing plan that helps you avoid paying the market rate is the biggest selling point when switching business energy suppliers. Look closely at what's being offered — is it a fixed plan with the same rate for the length of the contract or a variable plan that includes a cap or collar to allow for some market fluctuation?
  • Term length — How long are you committing to a supplier for? Do analysts expect that the market pricing will rise or fall throughout the commitment, and if so, how does the contract accommodate that? What are the penalties if you want to switch business energy suppliers before the contract ends?
  • Energy source — Where, exactly, is the supplier getting energy from? Are renewable sources available? If so, what percent of your energy will be renewable?

How to Compare Business Energy Suppliers

Switching suppliers requires a careful evaluation of all the commercial business energy providers in your area and weighing their pros and cons. Comparing business energy suppliers may seem complicated, but it doesn't have to be. Shipley Energy can help you better understand your options and make an informed choice.

We'll help you find the best answers to the following questions so you can make a wise decision:

  1. Am I getting the best deal? — With so many pricing plans and service options available these days, it can be difficult to determine if you're getting the best value for your money. It's essential to take a long-term view and choose a supplier with a proven track record of delivering results for their customers.
  2. How do I make sense of all these "extra" fees and charges? — A trustworthy supplier like Shipley Energy will be up front about its energy rates and won't have any hidden fees or frivolous charges. It will also take the time to explain its pricing structure and answer all your cost-related questions.
  3. How do I track my invoices? — As a business owner or manager, the last thing you need is to wade through more paperwork each month. Shipley Energy provides access to our E-Bill feature, where you can view invoices and make payments on a 24/7/365 basis. Best of all, the entire process is 100% paperless.
  4. Where is my fuel really going? — Keeping track of where your gas, electricity, propane, or diesel fuel is going can be a challenge, especially for companies that operate multiple locations. We can provide a comprehensive breakdown of your energy distribution and consumption so you'll know where things stand at all times.
  5. How do I protect my business from spikes in wholesale energy rates? — Commercial energy prices can fluctuate wildly, and the seasonal variations can also make it difficult to assess the market. Shipley Energy will assist you in developing a cost-effective procurement strategy that will work for your company throughout the year and help you avoid pricing surprises.
  6. How does our energy consumption line up with the other companies in our industry? — As an energy supplier with more than 90 years of experience, we can help you evaluate whether you are using too much energy in comparison to similar organizations. We can also assist you in finding ways to increase energy efficiency and reduce costs across all areas of your business operation.
  7. Is there a better alternative? — Once you've found the answers to these and other relevant questions and compare business energy suppliers in your area, we believe you'll discover that Shipley Energy can offer a much better alternative to your current supplier.

Commercial Energy Pricing Plans

There are a wide range of energy pricing plans available, and Shipley Energy can help you choose the one that makes the most sense for your business based on your energy source, consumption, and unique requirements. Depending on your energy source, a fixed, variable, or capped pricing structure may be available.

Our commercial budget plans are available for all energy types and help you by offering predictable payments you can budget for. For oil and propane users, there’s the cap price plan that protects you from market volatility from the moment you enroll.

We also offer the fixed-price plan for natural gas, bioheat, and propane users that keeps your price the same for a fixed period of enrollment.

Finally, there’s a variable price plan on all sources of energy that allows you to take advantage of the current market price at the time of delivery.

Developing a cost-effective energy procurement strategy is another area where Shipley Energy can provide reliable expertise. If yours is like many companies, you're probably spending thousands of dollars on utilities each month, especially if you operate multiple facilities. We'll help you implement a proactive approach to the procurement process that allows you to increase efficiency and reduce your energy costs.

The right strategy will enable you to:

  • Gain better control over the procurement function by selecting pricing packages tailored to your consumption patterns and budgeting requirements
  • Improve your planning functions as they relate to energy expenditures
  • Acquire more insight into your company's energy usage so you can make more informed purchasing decisions
  • Get more peace-of-mind from knowing that you're getting the maximum return on every dollar your business spends on energy

Payment Options & Financing

At Shipley Energy, we offer a variety of flexible payment options to make your energy costs as affordable as possible throughout the year. Many of our commercial customers elect to participate in our Budget Payment Program, which allows us to figure out how much energy you use in a year and break it up into equal monthly payments.

Our E-Bill feature minimizes paper clutter and reduces the amount of waste that ends up in landfills.

And with Smart Pay, you can experience the convenience of the automated transferring of funds to pay your energy bill.

Simplify Vendor Relations by Working With One Energy Supplier

Are you currently working with several energy suppliers? You probably have to sort through multiple invoices and try to understand a variety of pricing plans, and sometimes attempt to figure out where to call if you have questions or need service. It also makes it more difficult to know where all of your utility dollars are going each month.

With our vast expertise and experience in working with propane, natural gas, diesel, heating oil, and electricity, Shipley Energy can handle it all for you. You'll find that centralizing all your commercial energy needs with us will make your life so much easier and give you one less thing to worry about.
