  • Timely Purchases

    Achieving the best energy product at the lowest possible price is paramount and involves a keen sense of timing. Energy markets are volatile - knowing how and when to purchase energy requires foresight based on a deep understanding of the market and an intuitive grasp of the pricing dynamics. At Stanwich, our team constantly monitors market drivers like regional supply and demand, existing and pending regulations, economic data, infrastructure and transmission projects, and historical trends. We process this information, convey it to our clients and recommend the optimal procurement strategy.

  • Unbiased / Neutral Advisor

    As an independent energy advisor, we are not aligned with energy supply companies. We act as your fiduciary. Our main objective is to secure the lowest price and best possible contract terms. As a private company, we do not make decisions based on shareholder return or value perception. Stanwich acts as your advocate in the marketplace. We relish the fact that over 93% of our clients retain our services for future requirements.

  • Industry Knowledge

    We emphasize research and market timing. By evaluating every component of the energy pricing spectrum, our clients are assured that they are obtaining the best available rates. Competitive energy supply markets vary region by region. Our entire firm is dedicated to monitoring and identifying cost saving opportunities wherever they can be found.

  • What is energy degregulation?

    Our value add proposition is simple. We have significant purchasing power, we are experienced negotiators in the industry, we are privately owned and operated, and we focus on customer service.
    When you work with Stanwich, energy suppliers remove most of their administrative costs usually included in their pricing. These costs include customer service costs, commissions to direct salespeople (Stanwich works with indirect sales reps, who are salaried and not incentivized by commissions) and other costs associated with customer acquisition. This allows Stanwich to offer our customers a lower price compared to direct offers from the ESCO.

  • What has stayed the same in electric and natural gas service with deregulation?

    Delivery remains with the customer’s local utility. The local utility continues to deliver your power safely, and reliably. If you encounter an interruption in service, your local utility is responsible for bringing your service back online.

  • What has changed in electric and natural gas service with deregulation?

    You can select a new reliable energy provider and choose from various product options tailored to meet your unique power requirements.

  • With deregulation, will the reliability of my electric or natural gas service change?

    Absolutely not. The reliability falls on the shoulders of your local utility.

  • What happens if I have an emergency or power outage?

    In the event of a power outage, the customer should contact their local utility company immediately, as they’re responsible for fixing any service-related issues.

  • Where will the bill come from?

    The customer can choose how and where they want the bills sent. Some suppliers only offer a dual billing method (one supply bill and one delivery bill). Other suppliers can offer a single billing option where the customer will see their supply costs on their regular utility bill.

  • Does everyone have the option to choose a new electricity provider?

    Yes, anyone can choose a new electricity provider as long as they are located in participating deregulated states.

  • Why use an energy procurement advisor/broker like Stanwich?

    Our value add proposition is simple. We have significant purchasing power, we are experienced negotiators in the industry, we are privately owned and operated, and we focus on customer service.

    When you work with Stanwich, energy suppliers remove most of their administrative costs usually included in their pricing. These costs include customer service costs, commissions to direct salespeople (Stanwich works with indirect sales reps, who are salaried and not incentivized by commissions) and other costs associated with customer acquisition. This allows Stanwich to offer our customers a lower price compared to direct offers from the ESCO.

  • Will I notice a change of service when I switch my energy provider?

    No. Absolutely nothing will change with regard to the servicing of your account. The only difference you will see in your service is billing. The ESCO will charge you for the commodity (per the terms of your agreement with the ESCO) while your local utility will continue to charge you for transportation and delivery of your electricity and/or natural gas.

  • What happens if my energy provider stops serving customers?

    This is an extremely rare event. If this happens, the customer is placed back on the utility, or the customer has the option to shop the market for a new energy provider.

  • What is the difference between a kW and a MW?

    A kilowatt (kW) is equal to one thousand watts; a megawatt (MW) is equal to one million watts, thus 1MW = 1,000 kW. These are both measures of the amount of electricity your business uses at a given instance.

    A kilowatt-hour (kWh) is a unit of energy expended over time. A kWh is equal to one kilowatt expended for one hour. For example, a 1,000 watt (1kW) light bulb operating for one hour would use 1 kWh. Similarly, 1 megawatt-hour (MWh) equals 1,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh).

  • What is the difference between city gate and burner tip?

    City gate is the physical connection of an interstate pipeline and the pipeline of your local natural gas utility. Burner tip is the point where natural gas is ultimately used (your facility, as measured by your meter). The difference between city gate and burner tip prices is the rate your utility charges for transportation and line loss.

  • What is the difference between a Btu and a therm?

    A Btu is the abbreviation for British thermal unit, or the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit. A therm is equal to 100,000 Btu.

    Common natural gas converstions:
    1 therm = 100,000 Btu
    1 decatherm (Dth) = 10 therms = 1,000,000 Btu (also 1 MMBtu)
