Capstone Energy Services


Step Two - Strategic Analysis and Development

Once we know where the client is, the next step is to figure out where to go. Our goal is to develop long-term savings and price stability for our clients.

To do this, we first look at our clients' goals through the prism of the commodity markets. Far more than simply reviewing current pricing, Capstone Energy Services blends technical and fundamental analyses with a focused understanding of the micro-market structure in each client's location. Once we have developed a picture of the macro-environment of the energy markets, we review the current opportunities available through utilities and third party suppliers.

All of our focus is designed to build programs that allow our clients to access energy pricing that is as close to wholesale as possible, manage credit requirements from suppliers and help them understand and manage commodity risk. They are all highly tailored and always refer back to our clients' goals.
