The energy market began as a commodity trading mechanism for pure "black" power only.

Since it's inception, various derivatives and alternative products have been created to support and promote various environmental and political goals.

These secondary products apply to various states and will impact on energy bills in a larger way in the future.

They include such things as GreenPower, Carbon Credits, MRETs, VRETs, NGACs and QECs.

It is important to note that such items are generally regulated by volume, but not price.

As such, retailers will have variable rates for these secondary markets.

It is therefore important to understand how supplier contract terms vary, and seek to fix such rates for the desired contract term.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call.
