Why the Wholesale Energy Market is worth it

Up to 40% savings per month

Companies can negotiate energy prices according to their profile, getting fairer prices than in the Captive Market, resulting in significant financial savings.

Negotiation according to your consumption profile

The quantity of energy is determined according to the needs of each company and can be purchased from any distributor or generator.

Supply Security

The physical supply of energy continues to be handled by the electrical system of the local distributor, maintaining the same quality.

Renewable energy sources

There is the possibility of purchasing energy from renewable sources, such as wind and biomass, reducing your company’s environmental impact.

    

Difference between the Wholesale Energy Market and Captive Markets

Whoever is not yet in the Wholesale Energy Market is considered a captive consumer.  This means that they can only buy energy from the dealership, with no space for negotiation.

In the Wholesale Energy Market, a segment in which it is possible to freely negotiate prices, quantity of energy, period, supplier and other conditions, you have the flexibility to negotiate more advantageous contracts fitted specifically to the usage profile of your company.

What will change in your daily life.

Instead of receiving a single invoice, as you would in the Captive Market, you will receive two: one regarding the energy purchased and another in reference to the transmission of this energy.  The advantage is in both cost and efficiency, as, without the obligation to buy from only one distributor, you will be able to purchase energy at the lowest possible prices.
