AKRON, OH--(Marketwired - Aug 19, 2013) - Small and medium-sized and large businesses have very different needs. FirstEnergy Solutions (FES), a subsidiary of FirstEnergy Corp., understands this and works hard to provide unique business offers for customers of all sizes.
Small and medium-sized businesses are defined by FirstEnergy Solutions as those that use less than 700,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year in Ohio and less than 1 million kWh per year in FirstEnergy Solutions' other service areas. For such businesses, FirstEnergy Solutions' electricity offers include PriceControl, a product that allows a company to lock in the low price of today for a number of years. Typically, 4- and 7-year contracts are offered.
In some cases, small and medium-sized businesses can use a point-by-point comparison on FirstEnergy Solutions' website to compare their current rate per kWh, rate change, total savings and percent savings with what they would be by switching to FirstEnergy Solutions' electric generation services.
Large commercial and industrial businesses, on the other hand, are defined by FirstEnergy Solutions as those that use at least 700,000 kWh per year in Ohio and at least 1 million kWh per year in other service areas. Because this range is open-ended, it's necessary for these businesses to request a quote through FirstEnergy Solutions in order to receive the most accurate pricing -- and savings -- possible.
Requesting a quote for business offers is easy and requires little work on your part. Business owners simply fill out a Letter of Authorization giving FirstEnergy Solutions permission to gather current account information and evaluate potential savings.
