Commercial Electricity Service

In today’s economy, anything a business can do to reduce their overhead is a key advantage in the marketplace. Utilities are one area where many companies struggle to keep operating costs under control, often due to skyrocketing commercial energy rates.

Many businesses think that lowering their utility costs can only be done through a major investment in energy-efficient equipment or overhaul of their operations. In contrast, however, the thought of switching to a different commercial energy supplier doesn’t even enter the mind of many business owners.

But for other forward-thinking businesses, shopping around for more affordable commercial electricity is proving to be a great way of differentiating between business energy suppliers. And the end result is that often, without having to make any investment whatsoever, the simple switch to another energy provider with a more competitive commercial electricity rate can result in substantial and ongoing savings.

Deregulation Results in More Competitive Commercial Electricity Rates

It used to be that commercial electricity rates in PA, MD, and OH were regulated by the government, and only local business electricity suppliers could sell electricity to customers within their designated areas. But with the implementation of deregulation, which occurred in 1997 in PA, 1999 in MD, and 2001 in OH, independent energy suppliers have been allowed to enter the marketplace to competitively sell energy products and services to their customers.

These energy suppliers also have the freedom to provide electricity produced by various utilities to commercial and residential customers — they’re not restricted to just one utility company.

The Impact of Competition on Commercial Electric Rates

What many organizations still don’t realize is that with the deregulation of commercial energy in PA, MD, and OH, you now have the option of shopping around and taking advantage of low commercial electricity prices from business electricity suppliers like Shipley Energy.

Deregulation introduces the element of competition — and as you’ve undoubtedly learned from your own experiences in running a business, competition between multiple suppliers typically results in lower prices, and the same holds true for commercial electric prices. Not to mention that with a company like Shipley Energy, our more than 85 years of experience in the energy sector gives us leverage when we put our resources to work for our customers.

While some companies in the energy sector have proven slow to accept change, we’ve embraced innovation — not only in how energy is produced and traded, but also in how we can run our business more efficiently without losing our trademark superior customer service. By implementing features like paperless documentation, e-billing and the streamlining of invoicing, we have eliminated many non-essential administrative fees.

These changes mean we have fewer overhead costs, and that empowers us to share those savings with our customers through even lower electricity and fuel prices.
