Virginia Energy Rates
Natural GasNatural gas is one of the most volatile commodities traded in financial markets. It is especially sensitive to global weather conditions, natural disasters (hurricanes, etc.), and the economy.
In the fall of 2005, a series of natural disasters around the world, including Hurricane Katrina and a typhoon in China, affected the price of natural gas immensely. As seen in 2008, the price of natural gas can spike to $13/MMBtu and then fall to ~$2/MMBtu in just a few years (2012).
Fortunately, the market for Natural Gas in Virginia was deregulated by 2004 allowing suppliers to compete for your business so you are better protected from experiencing uncertainty in the market. BUE consultants specialize in risk analysis and mitigation to protect your business while taking advantage of market opportunities.
Businesses residing in Virginia can take advantage of this competitive marketplace. Now, more than ever, businesses can reduce the cost of manufacturing, heating, and any other process that uses Natural Gas.
Virginia is serviced by two utilities: Washington Gas and Columbia Gas of Virginia. These utilities provide the infrastructure needed to get you the natural gas to keep your office warm or to keep the ovens running, but do not necessarily have to supply you with your natural gas.
