Large commercial and industrial businesses have some notable advantages when it comes to energy costs, since they have the size to ask for lower prices than many smaller businesses and residential customers can manage.
That hasn’t made them any less interested in commercial energy providers, though. In fact, it only makes it more important for these businesses to look hard for customized energy solutions.
The U.S. Energy Information Administration notes that energy intensity in the U.S. industrial sector has been on the decline for several years. But that doesn’t change the fact that there are some industries such as metal smelting or chemical manufacturing where energy costs can account for more than half of overall production costs.
With these enormous expenses, it makes it all the more vital to seek out commercial energy solutions from providers like Plymouth Rock Energy.
While utilities offer significant price advantages to larger customers over residential rates, these deregulated companies can react more fluidly to changes in the market to help offer more competitive pricing options. Not to mention, many go well beyond simple commercial electricity services.
Founded as a coal and fuel oil service, the Long Island-based Plymouth Rock has shifted into a variety of new markets, ranging from electricity to efficiency:
Electricity – Plymouth Rock has been providing electricity since 2010 and has steadily extended these services to cover New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Maryland, with other states on the way.
Natural Gas – For the natural gas market, Plymouth Rock offers some of the same opportunities for commercial energy savings and risk management as with electricity, though at present only in New York and New Jersey. These services are slated to expand into nearby states in the coming year.
