Why Buy Now 

Having trouble closing deals due to high rates? We’re here to provide you with the information you need to answer the recurring question; Why buy now?

We break down the answer to this question so you can come to the table with all the information you need to help your customer navigate these unprecedented market conditions.

Substantial Increase in Electricity Demand Forecasted 

The electrification of cars and the expansion of data centers are leading to a significant increase in electricity demand, which will put a strain on power grids and resources. The heightened demand is likely to result in higher electricity prices. Consequently, businesses will face increased operational costs due to these rising electricity prices.

Natural Gas Exports are Soaring

U.S. natural gas exports are poised for significant growth, with over 12 billion cubic feet per day of new capacity underway, nearly doubling the current levels by 2027. As global demand for natural gas rises, the U.S. is likely to become the preferred supplier. Potentially leading to higher domestic prices if supply doesn’t keep pace with the growing demand.

Natural Gas Production Declining

United States natural gas production has been declining recently, marking a notable shift after many years of consistent growth. Over the past two months, the year-over-year production has decreased for the first time in many years. With increased demand from electricity load and LNG exports, the market will need increased supply or power and natural gas prices will likely trend much higher.

In Summary – Why Buy Now 

There is a high probability of electricity and natural gas prices increasing in the coming months, as forecasted demand is likely to outstrip supply. Given that the market is near historically low levels, this presents a favorable opportunity for businesses to mitigate risk by securing all or a portion of their energy supply costs now.
