How Can the Rhode Island Manufacturers Association Energy Program Help Your Business?

When good organizations team up, they become more valuable. That’s why the Rhode Island Manufacturers Association (RIMA) chose Constellation as their endorsed energy supplier. RIMA members can manage energy costs in new and powerful ways to achieve budget certainty, cost savings, and financial protection with Constellation’s full range of integrated energy solutions.

As a longtime customer of Constellation, Meridian Printing knew a 100% fixed price electricity contract might not give them the most attractive pricing over the long term. Working with Constellation, we chose a blended electricity solution that allows us to lock in portions of our electricity usage at opportune times. When our current fixed price agreement ends next year, we chose a flexible index option locking in 25% of our electricity load for 2 years. Constellation helped me understand that by locking in portions of my electricity load over time, I can actually build up to a 100% fixed price without the risk of locking 100% of our electricity usage into one price on one day.

Our participation in the Constellation electricity program allowed us to: Lock-in rates through December 2017 that are lower than the current National Grid rate; Procure fixed rate pricing at projected savings against historical rates; Not be influenced by fuel shortages; Secure 3-year pricing stability and/or additional profitability relative to our electricity cost component of current product pricing. This program, as well as the collaboration and relationships built with other manufacturers, provide a great financial return relative to member dues as a result of being a RIMA member.

At Rhode Island Carbide, we understand the urgent needs of our customers requiring critical high qualitycutting tools or parts at a reasonable price. This is why we are constantly looking for new ways to keep our costs under control. When volatile electricity costs began to impact our business, Constellation gave us the tools we needed to develop an energy management plan with long-term budget stability and price certainty.
