We get it. The industry’s dominated by companies that have their own best interest in mind. But when the mission isn’t dictated by stock price or bottom lines, but rather by the desire to provide customers the best value and service, there are no impediments to passing along the greatest possible savings in a deregulated market. Driven to succeed in this fashion is what sets ECA apart from the competition and will allow it to remain a viable source of your savings and, dare we say, happiness.

No mark-ups. No profit margin. We bill you the wholesale price we pay plus a nominal flat administrative fee based on the volume you use. There is no incentive for our members to buy energy at higher prices:
Here’s a current example of the fee:
Fee of $0.11 per thousand cubic feet (Mcf)
Fee of $0.0012 per kilowatt hour (Kwh)
Potential savings can vary from account to account depending on how much gas is used in the summer relative to the winter and depending on whether the account has non-capacity or capacity status.
