CONTRACT ANALYSIS AND NEGOTIATION Energy procurement is more than just getting the best rate. We review and negotiate all aspects of energy agreements to ensure that our clients make the best strategic decision to meet their specific requirements.
DEMAND RESPONSE Businesses can offset their energy costs by proactively curtailing their usage during times of peak demand. Peak events occur about 3 times annually and last for a few hours.
AUCTIONS A reverse auction offers an opportunity for businesses to review real-time bids from top retail energy suppliers. At the conclusion of the auction, a customer can proceed with their preferred supplier or wait until they feel market conditions are more favorable. There is no obligation.
DATA ANALYTICS Energy data is ever-increasing. By accessing real-time and historical data, analysts have the tools to put together predictive models, putting customers in the position to make more informed decisions than ever before.
RENEWABLES Op2mize can help you achieve your sustainability goals through the purchase of renewable energy credits or carbon offsets.
ENERGY EFFICIENCY Reducing energy usage through a project such as a lighting upgrade / retrofit, can go a long way to minimizing your overall costs.

A great rate attached to terrible terms and conditions and potential unexpected pass-thru charges can leave customers with sudden, unanticipated costs. Op2mize considers the best contract terms in conjunction with the customer’s ideal product type. Generally, contracts fall into a few categories: fixed, index, or combination. Based on our energy analysis we can work to determine which of these is best suited for your company.
An all-in fixed product fixes your entire energy supply rate for the length of the contract. Contracts typically range from one to five years.
PARTIALLY FIXED CONTRACTS
A partial fixed contract fixes the energy and sometimes other components of your energy supply depending on our assessment of the benefits and risks of fixing each component.
Index contracts set you up with a retail energy supplier, but rates still vary with the market. Customers on index contracts have the flexibility to lock in all or a portion of the contract when market opportunities arise.
COMBINATION PRODUCT CONTRACTS
With a combination block and index product, customers can fix a portion of their usage, while allowing the remainder to follow the index. This helps mitigate some risk against potential market increases, while still allowing some flexibility with a portion of the customer’s volume.
