Great question! Yes, it can! If you live in a state that has deregulated its electricity or natural gas utilities, you might be familiar with the fact that you can choose an alternative energy supplier outside of your utility company. In the deregulated energy markets (see map below), electricity can be purchased off the wholesale markets from generators and re-sold to the end user.
Energy brokers, like Diversegy, act as advisors to commercial customers in deregulated markets by helping them to vet supplier quotes, negotiate contract terms, and find low electricity rates. Diversegy has many sales personnel that aid in the negotiation of electricity supply contracts between their customers and Diversegy’s energy supplier partners.
