“Under New Hampshire’s energy deregulation law, the supply portion of your electric or natural gas bill is separated from the delivery portion. With the supply portion open to competition, customers can shop around for the best price on their energy supplies. Their electric and natural gas distribution utilities will still deliver those supplies through their wires and pipes – and respond to emergencies, should they arise – regardless of where those supplies are purchased. Purchasing your energy supplies from a company other than your electric or gas utility is purely an economic decision; it has no impact on the reliability or safety of your service.”

“Shifting to a competitive market should lower overall electric rates over time. For many consumers, it already has lowered rates. A major benefit of competition is that electricity suppliers, not consumers, bear the financial risk of investing in new generation plants.”

“Rates may also be lowered as the industry develops more efficient ways of producing energy. Competition also provides consumers with the option to choose more environmentally-friendly energy sources as noted above.”

Commercial customers choose from energy suppliers that provide service through already established utility accounts. This means that your utility will not change once you have chosen a competitive energy supplier.

Typically, a commercial customer can receive up to 30% discounts on energy supply rates. Summerview Energy helps commercial and industrial consumers get these discounts, and our services are provided at no cost. Our experts will analyze your bills and provide a free rate analysis aimed at securing the lowest rates available.

Overview Friday’s market held early gains, ending higher for the 3rd straight day, supported by stronger than expected Chinese GDP data that eased worries about global economic growth and the tight outlook for North Sea crude oil supplies. This capped the 3rd consecutive week of increases, bringing prices up $4 and 4%, with corresponding increases in US East Coast products (see more on a potential developing trend below). Prices are holding steady this morning, supported by Chinese government comments that it was ready step up efforts to boost its slowing economy.

Back on the July 5 report, “Have the fundamentals changed?”, which raised the issue of whether the abrupt reversal of the three month sell-off at the end of June was a lasting phenomenon or not. The argument then was that the long slide had set up an oversold market ripe for repositioning, the “inverse of a bubble on the long side”. Anything that upset the downward momentum would almost inevitably result in knee jerk shortcovering, which as soon as it was over, would see the reassertion of the overriding bearish elements of oversupply and slackening demand growth. Not that that wasn’t true, but what the argument may have overlooked was that the resultant shock to the system would leave the bears reluctant to start selling again, certainly with the same dedication. In turn, that would generate an increasing appetite for buying the dips rather than selling the rallies and this was certainly evident last week. One key – speculators have been adding steadily to length since the end June reversal. Nothing dramatic, just a steady claw back, but one which may be hard to shake without dramatic new indications that the fundamentals really haven’t changed. Technicals, in line with the failure to resume the downtrend, are increasingly biased on the bullish side. A close over $102.39 resistance, looking very possible today, suggests further advances, and the same with $2.82and $2.8250 in Heating Oil and Gasoline respectively.

Natural Gas Market Watch

Natural Gas Market Watch July 2012

On Friday, August Natural opened up around $0.03 and the market looked to be in rally mode coming out of the overnight session. As soon as the opening bell sounded, however, August dropped around a nickel and spent the next half hour clawing its way back to the opening range. From there, prices moved in a $0.04 range on one of the quietest trading days we’ve seen in a while. There is an uneasy feeling in the market, although it’s not supported by the chart analysis in the purest sense, that Natural Gas is over-bought at these levels. The bulls would love to see that $3-handle on a daily closing price, but nobody seems to believe that prices can stay there for any length of time. Last week’s storage report should serve as a cautionary indicator of what can happen to the supply/demand balance when prices are too high. This morning in Globex, Natural Gas is almost unchanged, Crude Oil is down around $0.35, Heating Oil is up around half a cent and Gasoline is up around a penny.

The Tropical Atlantic remains quiet this morning with no storm development expected over the next 48 hours.  Basis markets were generally lower on Friday. This could be the result of some pre-weekend profit-taking or it could be the result of the ongoing squeeze that has delivered markets caught in between the surging futures and the price of

Northeast city gate cash markets were strong on Friday. The market was anticipating very strong power generation burn over the weekend, with temperatures forecast to be in the 90’s for most of the region. New England markets were up $0.35 to $0.40 while Mid-Atlantic markets were up around $0.08.

The temporary hike for PSNH ratepayers will go into effect Monday as part of a recent Public Utilities Com­mission decision to allow the company to begin recouping costs from a state-mandated $422 million mercury scrub­ber project at PSNH’s coal burning Merrimack Station in Bow. The scrubber system went online in September and, according to a recent report filed to the PUC by PSNH, recent tests show that its “Clean Air Project” is re­ducing mercury emission 97percent to 98percent, well above the 80 percent mercury reduction requirement set by the New Hampshire Legislature in 2006. The plant has also reduced sulfur dioxide emissions by 96 percent to 98 percent, which exceeds the project’s 90 percent sulfur dioxide emissions reduction goal.

PSNH says the rate hike from 8.31 cents per kilowatt hour to 8.75 cents per kilowatt hour will allow it to begin recoup costs from 2011 and 2012 for the scrubber. This figures to be an increase of about $2.20 per month for a residential customer using 500 kilowatt-hours. The PUC could make a final determina­tion on how much PSNH can recover and set a more per­manent recovery rate later this year.
PSNII spokesman Martin Murray said even with the recent hike, the new energy charge is less than it was four years ago. He added the company is aware it is losing customers — in part due to the drop in natural gas prices, which has led to increased electricity supply competi­tion — and that is creating a market dilemma of a slowly shrinking customer base po­tentially paying high& rates.’ He said PSNH and state regu­lators are working to develop an alternative rate plan for the company to be more com­petitive.
“We are looking to spread out costs to a larger base in a manner that is fair to all cus­tomers,” he said.

Martin said, according to PSNH figures, through the end of 2011, some 2,000 cus­tomers — or less than one-half percent of its 421,000 accounts — had chosen other suppliers such as Resident Power.

Fromuth said many con­sumers still aren’t aware that deregulation laws passed as far back as 1999 allow con­sumers to choose the source of their electricity supply. He said electricity lines are still maintained by the customer’s utility, there is no equipment to install, and the bill still comes from the utility. The only change that mat­ters, he said, is the size of the bill. cull article published April 13. 2012
