Comparing Suppliers

We are a local, financially sound company capable of providing a reliable natural gas supply.

When evaluating a partner, also consider the following:

  • Is the company financially strong? Ask to review its financials.
  • Does the company have a strong understanding of your industry? Ask to see a customer case study.

That said, the natural gas market is volatile. To avoid costly market fluctuations, we recommend considering market conditions when evaluating pricing options. Our pricing strategies include:

Fixed Price

  • Provides greater control of your energy budget. Allows you to "lock in" up to 90 percent of your forecasted usage, for up to 36 months, with the remainder of your usage to float with market-based pricing.
  • Provides stability and security regardless of weather and volatility of commodity financial markets.
  • Allows you to budget the fixed percentage of your gas bill with certainty.
  • Usage above your contracted amount is priced at index.

Index/Floating Price

  • Price varies monthly based on a standard commodity price index.
  • A stable transportation charge is added to the commodity index.
  • Allows you maximum savings from gas market price declines.
  • Gives you the opportunity to lock in a fixed price when the market dips to a favorable level.
  • Requires budget flexibility to take advantage of this option.

About Hurricanes and Natural Gas Supply Interruptions

Your business can be disrupted by the indirect effects of hurricanes. For example, when a hurricane is about to approach, offshore drilling and production platforms are shut down for safety reasons. As areas evacuate, the process plants also are shut down.The path and the power of the hurricane will determine how long the flow of natural gas is disrupted. Even during major hurricanes, natural gas may still flow into Florida. However, pricing may increase by as much as three times during and after a weather-related event such as a hurricane.

Most natural gas contracts now contain "force majeure" language, which states that if your supplier cannot get gas because of circumstances beyond their control, then they are not in breach of contract.As part of the force majeure language, if gas is available, but at an elevated price because of an emergency supply situation, your FPLES natural gas contract offers you choices. You have the option of automatically receiving natural gas at any price or being notified of the cost and then deciding whether to accept replacement gas or not.If you decide not to receive replacement gas because of the cost, you will incur a penalty charge from the LDC. We have found that the penalty charge is usually more expensive than the cost of the replacement gas. We believe in safety and in being prepared before the start of hurricane season. Now is the best time to discuss with your natural gas consultant what procedures your business will follow in the event of a hurricane.We recommend our customers take the following preparatory steps:

  • Speak to your natural gas consultant or examine your contract to understand your options during a force majeure situation.
  • Provide updated contact information to FPLES by calling 877-375-4674.
  • Pre-determine the highest price you are willing to pay for your natural gas if you opted to not receive replacement gas automatically.
  • Develop an operational plan to minimize your gas usage if the situation warrants.
