About Our Company —

Empowering Your Passion®

In 2014, our managing partners set out to create a company devoted to helping small and medium-sized commercial, industrial, educational, and agricultural with specialized market solutions to bring savings and manage risk through natural gas.

That devotion has grown to include helping thousands of customers in nine states and Canada with their natural gas. Now, we’re taking this approach to help manage your electricity. We’ve teamed up with Shell Energy to provide an energy management system, ConnectedControl, to reduce energy consumption, improve operations, and reduce maintenance costs.

Customized for your needs​

The key to finding the best energy solution for your business begins by asking the right questions. How much do natural gas prices impact your budget?  How important is budget certainty? How many HVAC units do you have? What operational efficiencies do you currently have in place? From there, our team will work with you to customize a solution that best fits your needs and budget.  

An integrated approach to managing your energy ​

Combining our natural gas plans with ConnectedControl, you can improve your energy efficiency, reduce budget uncertainty, manage your facility remotely, and reduce maintenance issues. All without an upfront capital investment.

This integrated approach to managing your energy will save you time, money, and hassle.  

Backed by a team of energy experts

By working with thousands of business owners, we know how important it is to have an energy partner that you can rely on before, during, and after making your selection. We have a customer service team devoted to helping you get the most out of your energy plan.
