Power Purchasing Pitfalls: Don’t Be Fooled Again
Retail power markets offer many opportunities to energy buyers, but the procurement process may present pitfalls. While most power suppliers are honest, a few are less so, as are some brokers and at least a few consultants. Troubleshooting the process and the contract before signing it could avoid problems and save a bundle. Doing so may also help a customer avoid later feeling like he’s been “had.” Understanding and reviewing some of those potential pitfalls is the first step to buying like a professional. Training and certification are both available, as are fee-based services, to handle power procurement.
