Power purchasing strategies

An important step in creating a strategy that’s right for your business is to understand your business model and risk tolerance. Some questions to consider:

  • Do you have a 24-hour operation, normal business hours or something in between? 
  • Are you able to reduce power consumption? 
  • Do you need full budget certainty or are you comfortable with some market exposure? 
  • Is your usage expected to grow over time? 
  • What are your sustainability goals?
Learn more about purchasing strategies and their impact on your overall energy costs by reading Constellation's energy strategies white paper.
