Natural Gas Programs

Our mission is to help you achieve more through customized natural gas solutions.
Variable Rate
This program follows the market price and allows you the opportunity to lock into a protection-based program at any time.
Price Protection
This program provides topside protection against weather-driven natural gas rate spikes and downside participation during low-demand months.
Guaranteed Fixed Price
This program provides complete budget protection by locking in your price per therm for up to 60 months.

Full Requirements vs Partial Requirements

Your natural gas program should help bring savings and reduce your risk in the event of a market spike for ALL of your usage. We offer all of the programs listed above as what’s called a full requirements enrollment. This means that you are covered for all usage, regardless of your historical volumes, giving you peace of mind.

Case Study

Kansas Association of School Boards (KASB)

In August of 2021, the Kansas Association of School Boards announced WoodRiver Energy as the natural gas supplier for the KASB EnergyManagement Program. Formerly known as the Kansas Join Utility Management Pool (KJUMP), this program has served its 170+ member districts and organizations for the last three decades.

After its members were impacted by the extreme volatility during Winter Storm Uri in February 2021, KASB evaluated several suppliers to help their members meet the challenges of today and for years to come. That’s why they chose WoodRiver Energy’s Guaranteed Fixed Price program that locked in all of their usage for the next five years regardless of market conditions.

“We are excited to work with WoodRiver Energy as we deal with increasingly frequent extreme weather events that will continue to create volatility in the natural gas market. WoodRiver is a great supporter of public education, and we are already seeing the financial benefits of this relationship.”
- Austin Harris, Director of Member Engagement, Kansas Association of School Boards
