What Is a Commercial Electricity Supplier?

The 1999 Electric Customer Choice and Competition Act created an avenue for more electricity suppliers to enter the market. Maryland residents and businesses gained choices to meet their energy needs.

Choosing your supplier gives you the ability to shop for rates, terms, and other services that most benefit your business. Shipley Energy offers some of the most competitive commercial electricity prices in Maryland, making us a great choice for businesses in our service areas. Once you have your rate and terms picked out, we deliver your power through your local distribution company.

The Impact of Deregulation on Maryland’s Energy Industry

Prior to deregulation, Maryland businesses paid for energy from utility companies in their area, regardless of the quality of service or rate.

The 1999 Electric Customer Choice and Competition Act changed how residential and commercial customers pay for energy by allowing more providers to enter the market, thus creating competition.

Shipley Energy has been a helpful ally for Maryland’s businesses, providing reliable electricity at a competitive rate. Our company has over 90 years of experience in the energy industry, meaning we have the knowledge and expertise to run efficient electricity procurement teams. Our overhead costs are low, solidifying us as a top commercial energy supplier in Maryland. Choose Shipley Energy to make the most of Maryland’s energy industry.

Multiple Pricing Plans

Shipley Energy allows commercial customers in Maryland to choose a payment term that best suits their organizations. Access some of the most affordable commercial electricity rates in the state with one of Shipley Energy’s rate offerings:

  • Fixed: Our fixed-rate pricing option gives your business one flat rate for electricity usage that lasts for the duration of the agreement. A fixed rate enables businesses to plan budgets with certainty.
  • Block and Index: The cost of electricity is lower some months than others, so using a block and index strategy means you can lock in a “block”, or portion, of your electricity at a fixed rate, while letting less risky months float with the market. This can let your company recognize and capitalize on saving opportunities.

“We decided to go with Shipley Energy 10 years ago because of the need to hand this task off to a reputable company that specialized in the field. Our staff is very busy with projects in house and we needed someone (local) whom we could rely on to manage both electric and Natural gas for the long- term future. What stands out the most with our relationship / partnership with Shipley is the open communication between the companies. Shipley is constantly monitoring our usages to protect us from unanticipated surprises in the extreme heat or cold temperatures of our seasons. Shipley has well documented usages for our facility and shares that information as we move throughout the seasons and contract process. Shipley strives to uncomplicate the process and is open for conversations as required. I would suspect that If you are looking for a new supplier or are unhappy with your current supplier you owe it to yourself to visit with their sales staff.”

“Springwood Hospitality began our partnership with Shipley Energy in 2013 and at that time, we were managing four hotels. By the end of 2019, our portfolio will have 13 hotels, with more opening close behind. Shipley Energy has successfully helped us manage our portfolio’s energy costs during this period of growth. They conduct regular check-ins with our team and monitor industry trends to give us the information we need to make educated decisions about our energy agreements. We have a dedicated account manager that we can go to for any questions or concerns that we have throughout the year and during our renewal they are responsive and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend that other hotel management companies’ partner with Shipley Energy if they would like a peace of mind surrounding their energy costs.”

"TecPort Partners elected to do its most recent electric supply shopping through EnergyObjective, utilizing their impressive reverse auction platform. The company was able to exceed our expectations and lock in our PPL supply at a pleasantly low 18-month price. We saw wide supplier participation, a competitive back-and-forth bidding process, and complete transparency from start to finish. The contracting process was smooth and there were no surprises. The guidance provided by the reps at EnergyObjective regarding the auction process, market timing, contract lengths, and general electricity knowledge was helpful and appreciated. We at TecPort Partners would recommend the EnergyObjective reverse auction for any electricity user looking for straight talk, competitive pricing, and overall ease in the process."
