Century Energy Solutions is an energy procurement company that specializes in optimizing the energy spending of power and gas for commercial, industrial and institutional organizations. We build a relationship with a company and understand the individual needs of our clients, their appetite for risk and desire for lowest possible spending. With this information, we solicit the best bids of the 20+ electricity suppliers licensed in Illinois. Century Energy undertakes rigorous analysis to ensure that bids are comparable and conform to the true specifications of the client.
As qualified electricity consultants, we focus on negotiating your price/risk matrix, allowing you to concentrate on your core business. Like the stock market, forward electric and gas are volatile commodity markets. Pricing changes on an hourly basis and we monitor this market.
No, there is no mandated or standard “labeling” for deregulated energy proposals. All Illinois suppliers have their own product offerings and presentations. Most buyers, however, don’t have the same market knowledge as their electricity suppliers. Century Energy Solutions is armed with the same information as the supplier, which is why we receive the best offers for our clients.
Yes, you can request quotes from alternative suppliers directly. However, each supplier’s product offerings and specific contract terms vary. When you engage with Century Energy Solutions, you will have a single point of contact working on your behalf. We leverage our knowledge and experience with you to ensure you receive a contract that surpasses your expectations.
No, our suppliers do not charge switching fees. Depending on the time of the change in supplier, a utility reconciliation may cause a slight debit or credit amount.
We will prepare you with an electricity budget upon request (either during the procurement process or after a contract is signed). While this budget projects future costs based on the contracted rate and historical data usage, this is a team process. We will need your input on operations and equipment updates, as well as future usage changes.
No, the public utilities commission regulates the delivery of electricity. Regardless of who the supplier is your local utility is mandated within your service territory.
