If you’re a business owner in Ohio that relies on natural gas to heat your property, you know how sudden price fluctuations can impact your overhead costs. The fact is that natural gas pricing is unpredictable and, while there are other factors that affect your utility bills, any additional control you can have over the situation is a benefit. It’s for this reason that Ohio deregulated its energy market — now, businesses have more choice when it comes to how and from whom their utility company buys natural gas.

Shipley Energy works with several utility companies to offer commercial natural gas for Ohio businesses. If you’re a Dominion Energy,  Duke Energy, or Columbia Gas of Ohio customer, keep reading to learn how you can save.

Natural Gas for Your Business

Enter your contact details, we’ll guide you to a cost-effective solution, get back to running your business!



What Is Energy Deregulation?

Before energy deregulation in Ohio, the rate your business paid per unit for natural gas depended on market pricing. Deregulation opened up the market to competition by increasing the number of natural gas suppliers, allowing you to choose where you get your energy from. With more market competition and customer choice, your company has a greater opportunity to get better rates and save money on energy costs.

In Ohio’s deregulated market, utility companies continue to provide delivery service and maintain the grid while your supplier sets the rate your company is charged for natural gas use.

By choosing Shipley Energy as your supplier, we can select more flexible pricing plans and affordable Ohio commercial natural gas rates for long-term energy savings.

Why Choose Natural Gas for Your Ohio Business?

There are many reasons to consider switching from heating oil or propane to natural gas for your Ohio business. When you choose natural gas, you’ll benefit from:

  • Cost savings: Natural gas is the most effective type of fuel to heat your facility. Because it is such an abundant resource in the United States, natural gas has a lower cost per unit than other fossil fuels.
  • Reliable supply: Thanks to new drilling technology, natural gas can be more economically extracted from numerous stateside locations. As a result, domestic natural gas reserves are expected to meet fuel needs for at least the next 100 years.
  • Clean energy: Natural gas is clean-burning and requires less energy to transport than carbon-heavy fuels like coal. Choosing natural gas signals to your customers that you are committed to making environmentally friendly choices.

At Shipley Energy, we’re here to help you make the switch and convert your facility to a more affordable, dependable natural gas supply.

What Does a Natural Gas Supplier Do?

A supplier buys natural gas in bulk and sells it to a utility company. Unless you specify a supplier, utility companies are required to pay the market price for natural gas, and they pass that rate on to their customers. By choosing a supplier, you can avoid the uncertainty of paying the market rate and enjoy various convenient pricing plans.

Choosing a supplier doesn’t mean leaving your utility company or taking any business away from them. You’ll still deal with them directly for any billing or service issues. However, you will see a line on your bill that specifies that you’ve chosen Shipley Energy as your supplier and breaks down the new rate you’re paying.

“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."

What to Consider When Choosing a Natural Gas Supplier

Whether you’re switching to natural gas for the first time or looking for a new supplier, it’s crucial to find an efficient, reliable fuel source. The supplier you choose should be experienced and have a proven track record for high-quality products and services.

As you search for a supplier in Ohio, you should look for a company that:

  • Is licensed in Ohio and services your area.
  • Provides competitive commercial natural gas prices in Ohio.
  • Offers all the options your business needs to meet energy demands.
  • Has positive service ratings and customer reviews.

When you research Shipley Energy, you’ll quickly discover that we have all that to offer and more. We analyze your company’s energy needs to create a customized plan that meets your goals. When you choose us as your supplier, we make it easy and cost-effective to get your business a reliable natural gas supply.

Our Pricing Plans

At Shipley Energy, we provide flexible payment solutions to accommodate your energy and budget requirements. You have the option to select a fixed-rate plan or a variable-rate plan.

A fixed-rate natural gas pricing plan has several benefits:

  • You’ll avoid the uncertainty of the market, which typically drives up prices during periods of high demand — typically, in cold temperatures when you need heat the most.
  • You’ll enjoy more predictable pricing, which makes it easier to develop a budget and plan for other expenses.
  • You’ll potentially lower your energy costs over the long-term.

A variable-rate plan allows you to take advantage of dropping market prices. When you choose variable pricing, we estimate your fuel usage and bill you equal monthly installments with our Budget Payment Plan.

Natural gas can’t be stored on site for future use, so the only way to benefit from wholesale pricing is to work with a supplier like Shipley Energy. Check our Ohio commercial natural gas rates by contacting us today.

Why Choose Shipley Energy?

There are many natural gas companies in Ohio that promise freedom from market pricing. Many of them offer seemingly great deals and low prices — but when it comes to powering your business, it’s essential to work with a company that will be around to deliver on its promises for years to come.

Shipley Energy has been in business since 1929. We’ve been supplying fuel to Ohio businesses for decades — well before the deregulation of the natural gas market. We strive to create long-lasting relationships with the companies we serve, and we have a track record that proves our success in this regard.

We’ll take the time to understand your business’ heating and natural gas needs. We can help you make an informed decision — one that gives you the most freedom and, ultimately, the most benefit.
