Dual Fuel programs allow customers to leverage their investment in dual fuel capability to switch between natural gas and alternative fuels, typically oil, when the price of natural gas is peaking. For committing to switch fuels, our Suppliers will provide a guaranteed savings in the form of discounted pricing or lump sum payments.
Capacity constraints both in pipeline infrastructure during the winter and the electricity grid during summer heat, provide opportunities to generate savings using your dual fuel capability.
How it Works
There are a number of programs available from which you are able to choose.
Guaranteed savings for committing to switch daily, up to 20 days per year, when market opportunities arise. If you can switch between fuels on a daily basis and / or have limited oil burning capabilities this may be a program for you to consider. Significant upfront incentives are available.
Guaranteed savings for committing to switch monthly, as required, when market opportunities arise.
If you are able to switch fuels freely for longer periods of time, this program is the right choice for you.
If you would like to switch to a lower cost fuel, but are not able to commit in advance, we monitor your entire fuel contract term for fuel switching opportunities and alert you if an opportunity arises for you to save money.
A fixed price will be established for an agreed term regardless of which fuel, natural gas or oil, is burned based upon market conditions and the number of days the customer is able to burn oil.This option provides the least expensive fuel source and the lowest fixed forward cost to dual fuel customers.
