Load balancing from the utilities primarily involves managing variations between delivery and consumption. Since utilities roughly receive the same quantity of gas every day they need to find a balance between the time it receives the gas from Western Canada and the time it is consumed by the customer.
Each utility has a slightly different approach but effectively requires you to adjust your forecasted gas usage during checkpoint events. Let’s say you burn, on average, a daily amount of 250 GJ (DCQ) where you are long on gas (have excess) in October and short on gas (need more) in February.
We can analyze your position and help you take advantage of the times in which your business and the gas market line up to create opportunity. We’ll buy and sell excess gas to create tremendous gas contract savings on your behalf. We are especially good in understanding the Ontario greenhouse industry and will work hard to match your gas usage with your crops.
