Title: Guide to purchasing electricity and gas

Abstract

An issue which now faces all energy users is understanding the specifics of the impact of the deregulation of the electric and natural gas industries. This book was written to help one understand the forces behind deregulation, and how one can use this knowledge now to negotiate lower utility rates, even if deregulation has not been fully implemented in one`s area. Readers will learn how coordinating new rate packages with the management of in-house loads can multiply savings. Essential ingredients to successful negotiation are clearly outlined, including assessing the alternatives for both load management and supply, understanding interruptible rate options, doing homework on ongoing deregulation activities, finding out who makes the decisions and working directly with them, and hands-on involvement in fine tuning the final contract. Case studies are also included.
