Electricity Suppliers in MD

Maryland has opened up electricity competition for both commercial and residential electric service customers.

This program is called Maryland electric choice and allows for cheaper electric rates and more options, benefits, and value in regards to rate plans offered.

Commercial customers go through an initial reverse auction process. For the reverse auction to serve the purpose of lowering retail margin on the MD electricity rate there needs t be at least 2 days devoted to having the MD electricity suppliers competing for your account.

Our energy consultants take your historical Maryland electricity usage out to these competing suppliers and if you are a new business estimated electric usage is created to assist in the bidding process.

These electricity suppliers bid on your account and since we act as an arm of your company and as your consultant we assist in negotiating and lowering these prices as they come in from each electric company.

We give each electricity supplier in the mix the opportunity to bid again against the lowest electricity price without disclosing what exactly that price is.

Once as much margin has been squeezed out of the electricity rate from each energy provider we fashion a detailed electricity proposal showing all offers on the table.

We compare fixed electric rate offers in a clear apples to apples comparison as well as variable spot market prices that follow an energy commodity or heat rate.

For large Maryland commercial and industrial facilities advanced bids are received that make use of such things as spot market prices, block energy purchases, heat rate, and locking in the natural gas portion of the electric rate.

If you are unfamiliar with some of these price lowering strategies for your Maryland commercial or industrial business we would be happy to go into more detail over the phone. Please sign up using the box at the top right to begin.

Maryland commercial electricity and hidden fees and charges

Friday, January 7th, 2011 | Permalink


There are a few dishonest electricity companies that are selling commercial energy in Maryland but they are not disclosing the whole fee.

We have seen several complaints come in from commercial businesses in Maryland signing up with some of the disreputable electricity suppliers who promised them one thing but delivered something different on their bill.

The quoted saving percent people may hear from these electricity companies is 30% lower than the monopoly electric utility.

One word of warning is to stay away from variable electricity rates. Many of these Maryland energy companies will  quote you a really cheap variable price and then pass through everything else on your electric bill, which is not an ‘all-in’ rate, as they present it to unknowing prospects.

Some of these electricity suppliers in Maryland will go so far as to hire someone to scour the Internet for negative comments about their company.

These energy companies will then create an account on the website with the negative comment and pretend to be a happy customer with a positive comment.

Some of the energy companies to be wary of are based in the Virgin Islands and the Bahamas. Be careful out there when shopping for your Maryland electricity supplier and if you have any questions let one of our energy consultants answer it.

We spend the time to make sure there are no hidden fees and charges in the contract and terms of service.

When you see the proposal we provide, you are getting a clear picture from your Maryland energy consultant and not just one rate from one electricity supplier in MD trying to convince you their rate is the best when there are many others out there to choose from.
