Gexa Energy's LMP product allows businesses to purchase their commodity rate based upon LMP (Locational Marginal Pricing Index). Businesses with a higher risk tolerance can float the spot market to take advantage of downward market movements. Businesses have the flexibility to potentially convert to a Fixed Price product once market conditions are more favorable.

Since the customer is basically absorbing all the risk that the price will fluctuate, there is no variable load cost associated with this option. This hourly fluctuation can make it difficult for some businesses to accurately manage their cost as it relates to the quantity that needs to be consumed for that particular hour.
However, businesses can take advantage of price volatility to competitively plan and manage the quantity of electricity they consume based on anticipated hourly prices. Manufacturers, for example, can opt to use more electricity at off-peak hours (overnight).
How Market Energy Index Pricing Works

Image displays various levels of risk with fluctuating energy prices, indicating the Location Marginal Pricing (LMP) Index offers a higher risk tolerance and the Fixed price offers a lower risk tolerance.
With our index price option, businesses pay the varying market price of electricity for each given hour. This hourly fluctuation provides businesses with the flexibility to adjust their usage to take advantage of market dips.
