Maryland Electricity Deregulation

On July 1, 2006, all Maryland Standard Offer Service (SOS) electricity supply rates, (the tariff rates offered by all investor-owner utilities in Maryland), dramatically increased. PEPCO, Delmarva, Allegheny and Baltimore Gas and Electric, (BG&E), standard offer electricity supply rates have increased for commercial customers, depending on rate class, by as much as 45%. Fortunately for Maryland businesses, Good Energy has several ways to avoid the SOS electricity supply rate increases. To identify these money-saving opportunities simply download our Maryland letter of authorization and follow the included directions.

A Good Time to Lock in Fixed Energy Pricing

The twelve month NYMEX Natural Gas strip is currently trading at $8.128 per MMBtu, down sharply from the December 2005 high of $12.485.

In the event your business is served with energy pursuant to an index product, (for example an MCPE product in Texas, or the default ConEd product in New York City, please contact Good Energy at (866) 955-2677 for a no-obligation energy supply analysis, (natural gas, electricity and fuel oil).

Federal Energy Tax Credits for Commercial Properties

Good Energy is pleased to announce its program for achieving maximum benefit from certain provisions of the Federal Energy Policy Act of 2005.

In short, there are new immediately-available tax deductions for commercial buildings.

Generally, any large scale facility improvement must be accounted for as a capital improvement. Pursuant to GAAP, capital improvements must be depreciated over a long period of time. The annual depreciation can be booked against income, reducing the amount of income tax a business must pay. If the business is an LLC or other pass-through entity, then the tax liability, (or reduction thereof), gets passed through to the membership interest owners of the LLC. The federal tax deductions allowed under the Federal Energy Policy Act of 2005 make it possible to apply the tax benefits of expensing an energy efficiency upgrade in the year the upgrade is completed, rather than over a long period of time. Following are some key considerations:
