Commercial Solutions

We provide energy management assistance and custom electricity procurement for thousands of companies, in every industry, spanning across every deregulated market in North America.

POWERING YOUR BUSINESS

UCEP’s energy-cost mitigation strategies are designed to help companies lower their monthly operational expenses, reduce peak energy demand, and improve overall energy efficiency. If you use electricity, we can help.

Most companies simply don’t have the time, resources, or manpower to navigate through the maze of retail providers, convoluted contract language, types of energy products, and the full scope of services that over 200 REP’s in Texas provide. That’s where we bring value. UCE Partners stand apart from the crowd by excelling at procuring the optimal electricity solution catered to your company’s unique business processes.

When buying electricity, timing is everything. The energy market is constantly fluctuating, similar to a company’s shares on the stock market. Due to this variability, it’s vital to proactively monitor market conditions and stay informed on all bullish/bearish factors driving the cost of energy in order to identify the best window of opportunity to lock-in your next electricity contract. When considering your electricity options, it’s also important to choose the right product type. Some of these consist of various fixed and variable products, all of which can be beneficial depending on the scenario. However, the product you choose should always be chosen based off the current market conditions at the time in conjunction with your particular operation. United Commercial Energy Partners will ensure our customers understand the differences between each product and help them make the selection that will maximize their available savings and minimize the cost of their energy on an ongoing basis.

Savings Opportunity:

Peak Demand

UCEP can help assist and lower your peak demand, which could result in savings of up to 10% on utility charges.
Annual peak demand is the maximum demand required to operate your business over the last 12 months. To bill the demand charges, your Transmission and Distribution Utility (TDU) uses the higher of two figures — either 80% of the annual peak demand, or the current month’s demand.

Demand varies by consumer and time of year. To record demand, a special meter IDR meter tracks the flow of electricity to a facility over a period (usually 15-minute intervals). The 15-minute interval with the highest demand is recorded and reflected on your monthly bill.

Energy Efficiency Incentive Programs

While there are very strict rules and regulations to follow in order to participate in state-run energy efficiency incentive programs, we can help to determine if any of them fit your business.

In our company’s experience, many companies end up being denied these funds simply for not following the proper guidelines. Let UCEP help you through the process!

Our Process

We work closely with our customers to ensure that we identify and take action on any savings or refund opportunities. And we do the “heavy lifting” at no cost to the customer.

Over the last 10 years, we’ve seen how utilities, retail electric providers and some third parties provide these services and just bill the customer the way they see fit — instead of reviewing all the scenarios that would benefit the customer. (Of course, this would be taking money out of their own pockets.) In fact, in a recent study conducted with over 300 commercial clients, only four of them were even aware that these opportunities existed.

Deregulated Energy States and Markets

This map shows deregulated electric and gas markets in the US as of March 2017. No state has an energy market that is completely deregulated. The closest state is Texas with approximately 85% of the state having access to energy choice.
