Unique Electricity Supply Purchasing Platforms
FEL places large-scale electricity users into the wholesale market as direct participants. This method is the most cost efficient and transparent product in the market. This is a model pioneered by Freedom Energy Logistics that gives clients access to retail products at wholesale prices. This is Freedom’s longest standing product offering. Additional benefits include …
- Ability to modify your usage patterns and habits to take advantage of lower off-peak prices.
- Purchase wholesale blocks of power directly from generators, including green energy options.
- Certain states exempt Direct to Grid clients from purchasing renewable energy credits resulting in further cost reduction.
A great option for sophisticated energy purchasers that want the benefits of wholesale pricing without the responsibility involved with going Direct to Grid.
- Still receive many of the benefits of cost efficiency and transparency that are associated with the Direct to Grid Model.
- Hourly market based pricing.
- 30 day contracts allowing flexibility with changing market conditions.
Some customers are able to take advantage of this value added service …
A component of your wholesale electricity cost is a capacity fee. The capacity fee is assessed based on your electricity usage at the single peak hour of electricity demand on the entire New England grid in the calendar year (Annual System Peak). That peak hour is most likely to occur at some hour in June, July or August between 2:00 and 6:00 p.m. Your demand for electricity at that peak hour will be assessed as your “capacity tag” effective June 1 of the following year and will define your capacity fee for 12 months.
While there is no guarantee or method to be able to definitively identify the exact peak hour, we do our best to predict when it may occur by evaluating influencing factors including grid demand, weather forecasts and historical data and then relay that information consistently to our customers.
The most common electricity supply product is a fixed price – fixed term contract. This is the best way to ensure budget certainty and avoid potential volatility. Knowing when to buy is another story, and that is what we do for you.
- Freedom works with the largest suppliers in the market in order to ensure the lowest possible prices. All of our suppliers are put through a vetting process so that we only work with the best of the best.
- Freedom advises clients on the best time to purchase and extend contracts, recognizing that simply waiting for your contract expiration is not always the best time to buy.
- We pride ourselves in understanding each supplier contract and advise clients on specific language differences in each.

FEL finalized an innovative method of electricity supply purchasing. Utilizing research on NH HB 1116, they orchestrated a unique power purchasing arrangement between the University of NH and local hydropower generators within the same utility. Dubbed ‘Direct-to-Green’, this power purchasing method is quite innovative. Unlike traditional REC purchasing from wind farms across the nation, the socially responsible energy consumer now has access to locally produced green energy. Additional benefits include:
- Choice in Renewable Energy Sources
- Realistic Term Commitments
- Affordable Green Energy
