How Your Business Can Obtain the “Lowest Possible” Energy Costs


When deregulation removed the monopoly on energy supply, energy purchasers became free to direct their utility to use an alternative supplier to transport natural gas and electricity to their meter. This new competition allowed users to search out the lowest supply rate vs. paying “retail rates” directly from the utility.

In 1997, the Energy Cooperative was founded to provide businesses across New York State with the best purchase leverage in the state. Because it is a not-for profit member-owned cooperative, all savings are passed along to the members in lower natural gas and electric costs. The Cooperative buys energy at the lowest wholesale price and passes along those savings to our members for only a flat nominal administration fee based on volume used.

Who can be a member of the Cooperative?

Any New York State business or commercial operation can apply for membership and start saving on energy costs immediately. These businesses include:

• Manufacturing/Industrial operations
• Colleges & Universities
• Hospitals
• Nursing homes
• Office buildings
• Apartment complexes
• Retail stores
• Restaurants

A Flat Nominal Fee Is All Our Members Pay

No mark-ups. No profit margin. We bill you the wholesale price we pay plus a nominal flat administrative fee based on the volume you use. There is no incentive for our members to buy energy at higher prices: Here’s a current example of the fee:

Natural Gas:
Fee of $0.11 per thousand cubic feet (Mcf)

Fee of $0.0012 per kilowatt hour (Kwh)


We understand how expensive utility costs can be to run a business. That's why our business is to get you maximum energy savings. And we have both the numbers and the clients to prove it, with a large portfolio including TOPS Markets, Tim Hortons, and more. As a not-for-profit member-owned cooperative, we buy energy direct at wholesale and pass our discounts along to your organization, resulting in consistently lower electric and natural gas prices. We do it all with no contracts and comprehensive cost savings reports available 24/7.
Give us the opportunity to analyze your energy costs and leverage our buying power for your benefit in three easy steps.
