What Make Us Different

Glasses

We understand that a partnership means having skin in the game.   We’re not going to hide behind auto-renewing contracts, hidden fees or non-transparent costs.   Our role is to advise you to the best of our ability, with the most up to date information available in order to meet your needs and make good natural gas purchases on your behalf.   If you are not satisfied with our day-in day-out performance, we believe you should have the option to look elsewhere.

Participating in the natural gas marketplace is a time-consuming process.  The many interactions with regional utilities, suppliers, and regulatory agencies are challenges we’re happy to handle on your behalf.   No doubt you have your hands full looking after your primary business.   Put your confidence in Energy Source and we’ll monitor the opportunities on your behalf.

Markets change rapidly everywhere around the world.   One of the most volatile markets is Natural Gas Futures in North America.   With rapid changes comes the risk of finding your gas portfolio outside the safety boundaries you’ve set.   Energy Source is watching the market all day.   As your provider, we’re continually monitoring not only what the market is doing but how it affects you directly.   We will alert you when boundaries are approaching and advise you with opportunities as we see them develop.   The last thing you need is to be taken by surprise.

Many gas marketers use a business model where they bring you in with a low introductory price and subsequently use your account for their own benefit over the years.   We believe in a partnership approach where we treat the variables in your gas account as assets.   We continually look for and introduce you to opportunities to use these assets for our mutual benefit.   The Energy Source approach is to drive your costs lower over the long term not just beat the competition with the initial price quote.

Energy Source is a small company with a deliberately limited number of customers.   While we are growing, our goal is to continue to work with a very manageable set of partners.   We stay on top of each customer’s portfolio monitoring its performance against the market and making appropriate adjustments.   Our hallmark is to keep you informed and able to make the strategic decisions without burying you in the details of the transaction.  

Energy Source does not use a telephone screening system.  When you call our offices, you’ll be immediately in touch with someone who can start helping you right away.   We’re a small, dedicated team who remains familiar with the details of all our customers.   Not everything, though, happens within the confines of business hours.   We’re available on call and have systems that help us monitor the markets if something affects you after hours, on holidays, on over the weekends.   Our number one concern is to look after you and provide the highest level service possible.

Meet the Energy Source Team

In the same way that we value the differences between our customers, we value the individuality of our employees. Our focus is on talent rather than on titles. We match individual strengths to client and company needs. As a team we have over 28 years experience in the natural gas industry in Ontario.

Our Philosphy

We started Energy Source Natural Gas with the intention of being the supplier of choice for small to mid-size industrial, commercial, and institutional natural gas users in Southern Ontario. We knew there was a better way to market natural gas.

Honesty and integrity are the keystones of all of our relationships, whether with our customers, our suppliers, our competitors, or our employees. We know that relationships are the essence of this business and that those relationships are based on the highest bonds of integrity and trust between our team and our customers. We know that over time the relationships become broader, wider, and deeper.

We succeed because we take the time to create these important relationships. We get to know you, to know your business, and to know your business goals. Your business is not the same as any other business. We value and respect the differences. We learn from them. It’s the only way to ensure that we fulfill your natural gas energy needs.

The following list of core values reflects what is truly important to us as an organization.

We want Energy Source to be an exciting company to belong to and to become a very special place to work.  These core values will transcend our current small size and growth rate. We want these values to be the heart of the company.
