Why do business with Better Cost Control?

Our experience and expertise puts us in the position to get you the best terms on your energy costs. We do this by finding prices that are not advertised and negotiating with energy supply companies, some of whom only work with brokers like Better Cost Control. Those energy companies save money because they don’t need to involve their sales staff. Moreover, some energy suppliers don’t even have a sales staff and don’t advertise, so you’ve never heard of them.

But we know all the suppliers well, and we are skilled at negotiating with them. The result: we pass those savings on to you.

This is where we live—working with energy suppliers throughout the U.S. and well aware of their individual strengths and weaknesses. We shop for competitive prices all the time. We understand that, with the market fluctuations, price comparisons need to be made on the same day. You’ll see that the bids we obtain on your behalf represent a true “apples-to-apples” comparison.

If you have ever encountered an energy contract, you know they are highly complex. The devil is in the details; what seems at first to be the lowest price may, in the end, actually be higher than you thought. The Better Cost Control team negotiates hundreds of these contracts each year. We know what to look for.

If a sales representative from an energy supplier offers you a contract, think again. Better Cost Control will offer you that product, plus fi ve others. We work for you, not the energy suppliers, always with the goal of getting you the best price and the best terms. That way, you are squarely in control.

Once we understand your business and your goals, we can determine if you will be best served by fixed pricing, index pricing or a combination of both. Here’s a quick overview:

Fixed pricing. This is a more conservative approach to the purchase of energy. You eliminate any risk of price increases, since your price is guaranteed. But if the energy market heads downward, you miss out on savings. This is the most common type of contract, a true “insurance policy”.

Index pricing. This more aggressive strategy reflects the actual cost of energy, leaving you open to a degree of volatility, but with potentially lower prices. If you believe that prices will stay level or fall, this might be your best option.

Combination strategy. This option, while combining fixed and indexed approaches to your energy usage, may or may not be right for you. Better Cost Control will help you to  carefully consider your options, based on usage and other factors.

Our goal is to reduce the amount of time you spend obtaining the best possible energy contract.  We are a single point of contact to get quotations from all the suppliers in your market. Click here to review the course of action that makes up Better Cost Control’s efficient process.
