Energy Price Monitoring with MarketWatch® from Constellation

MarketWatch monitors the forward power markets and is a no-cost tool offered to Constellation customers. You can proactively monitor energy prices to make an informed purchase decision when your "strike" prices are close. Choose a “strike” price, with a soft or hard trigger.

MarketWatch® Soft Trigger

  • A soft trigger will send an email notification when market prices reach your strike price.

MarketWatch® Hard Trigger

  • A hard trigger will make a purchase on your behalf when market prices hit your strike price. You can also choose to be notified when the market rises above a designated “ceiling” price to manage the effect of upward price trends.
  • You can purchase a predetermined percentage of your load, block of electricity or your entire load for a specific term.

MarketWatch can be used with the following Constellation power solutions:

  • Flexible Index Solutions 
  • Index Plus Block Solutions 
  • Fixed Price Solutions
