Commercial Energy Options


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.

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?

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.

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.

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.
