What is an energy bill?
An energy bill comprises three components; energy charges, demand charges, and fixed charges. Energy charges are determined by the amount of electricity (kWh) consumed. Sometimes, depending on the time and season, the costs can fluctuate based on the usage. The maximum demand determines demand charges during the billing period. Fixed charges are determined by the same electric rate per kilowatt-hour (kWh). There are a few ways to reduce costs affecting your bill other than conserving energy used. But one of the most effective ways is having Peak Utility Brokers assess and select the best utility suppliers for you to work with. Within our network, we work with all suppliers.

What is a natural gas bill?
A natural gas bill entails three components similar to electricity. The overall natural gas cost is determined by gas supply, gas delivery, and taxes and fees. The measured physical volume consumption determines gas supply charges. The distribution process to your home or business determines the gas delivery. The servicer determines the municipal taxes, and the state taxes are determined by the law. Assuming that your present provider is your local neighborhood utility, it's most likely you're overpaying. Most nearby services are on a variable rate gas plan. A variable-rate plan changes with the seasons, so you might be spending on higher gas costs as you utilize more energy in the colder time of year.
