The Liberty Plan is a hybrid aggregation priced solution designed to take advantage of wholesale cost by using the power of
aggregation and seasonal buying to obtain the most aggressive rates.
Due to the increase in demand during the summer and winter months, purchasing electricity at a fixed price in the months prior can
present a cost saving opportunity. This is because "shoulder" seasons are not influenced by high power consumption during the summer cooling season or the winter heating demand. These months, typically March and October, are the recommended times to lock in a fixed price for electricity. Over time, it has been consistently proven that the purchasing of large aggregated blocks of power results in price breaks.
Liberty Plan clients are pooled together to leverage the advantages of purchasing large blocks of power during shoulder seasons. Members of the pool will initially be enrolled with a supplier in a market-based index plan (similar to our Independence Plan) at the beginning of their Liberty Plan term. As the pool grows and shoulder months approach, Patriot Energy monitors energy markets and prices the pool at the most opportune time. Pool members are offered a fixed, discounted rate based on market-price and the number of Liberty Plan members.
Members that choose to opt out of the fixed price will continue to receive a market-based rate (similar to that of our Independence Plan) until the next opportunity to obtain a fixed price.
