Channel partners

To design the best possible solutions for our customers, BUE works with third-party suppliers across the United States.

While your clients receive enhanced energy management strategies, you create an extra revenue stream for your business.

After coming on board as a channel partner, you’ll work hand in hand with one of our representatives to develop an outreach plan for your existing or prospective clients. You maintain control over which services most closely align with your interests and the interests of your clients. We maintain a non-compete platform that ensures we have no conflicts with services you may already offer.

FAQs

  • Where is BUE’s service area?

    BUE can offer natural gas and electricity supply procurement in any applicable deregulated state, as shown on the map below.

    We can offer Demand Response services across the PJM, New York (NYISO), Texas (ERCOT), California (CAISO), New England (NE ISO) and Ontario, Canada (IESO) markets.

  • What is deregulation and how does it affect me?

    In deregulated states, third-party suppliers (non-utility companies) can supply natural gas and electricity to end-users, giving consumers the opportunity to buy their energy from the best source. Your bill is divided into two major parts:  supply and delivery.

  • How are BUE suppliers different from my utility company?

    By selecting a qualified BUE supplier, you have exactly the same assurances in regard to receiving your electricity and natural gas. If the power goes out, you can still call your utility to come fix it. You will continue to receive the same reliable service you’re accustomed to and will in no way be penalized by your utility for switching.

  • What if my utility is also my supplier?

    If you receive your full energy supply requirement from your utility company, you are charged a rate based on the prevailing cost of electricity and gas plus monthly adjustments including administrative charges. These costs are passed directly to you (however, the utility has no profit on the supply portion of the bill).

    Third-party suppliers can use purchasing strategies not available to the utility, allowing them to provide options your utility cannot.

  • Do I have to notify my utility after I select another supplier?

    No, we’ve selected suppliers that work with your utility to ensure a smooth transition between energy suppliers. The energy supplier will notify your utility company of your switch and you will continue to delivery your electricity and/or natural gas with no interruptions.

  • How will I be billed by the supplier I choose?

    In most cases you will continue to receive a single bill from your utility company with the supply charges listed separately. BUE requires that all details of the energy supplier’s offer be provided and displayed to you.

  • How do I benefit with BUE?

    BUE works and negotiates for you to receive the best possible rates from bidding third-party suppliers. All suppliers serving your area have been reviewed and pre-screened.

    The suppliers selected to be in our procurement process are some of the biggest energy companies in the country. These suppliers must maintain a good reputation for fair business practices, good client service and our requirement to provide competitive offers.

    We are confident in our ability to bring you the best rates possible and you aren’t obligated to accept any offer if you are dissatisfied for whatever reason.
