Natural Gas Programs

NYMEX Plus (Variable) Solution

Based on the monthly NYMEX natural gas market

  • Allows the customer to secure a fixed-price for non-energy costs (delivery) while keeping a variable market rate for the commodity portion
  • Customers can convert a portion of their load into a fixed-commodity price, spreading risk over multiple layers while the rest of the load remains market-based
  • Commodity prices are tied to NYMEX, a commodity future trading exchange
  • Ideal for customers able to bear the risk associated with market price volatility

Fixed Price Solution:

Single fixed price for 100% of natural gas usage

  • Allows businesses to secure a set price per MMBtu for the term of the contract
  • Best suited for customers looking for budget certainty and no tolerance for price risk
  • Price and budget certainty comes at a cost – suppliers add a risk premium for the risk they assume
