How to Enroll

Given the volatility in today’s energy markets, it’s important to manage your budget and your pricing risk. With Sprague, you can lock in your natural gas rates with a fixed price, select a variable price option—or do a combination of both.

No matter the size of your business, we’re happy to work with you to develop a purchasing plan that meets your needs. Contact us today and let one of our energy experts walk you through all of your purchasing options—and experience the Sprague difference.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I buy my natural gas and electricity from Sprague, rather than from my utility company?

Yes. Sprague will deliver your natural gas and/or electricity requirements to the utility, and then the utility will deliver the actual gas and/or electricity to you. You’ll receive two bills: one from the utility for their distribution service and one from us for the actual product (natural gas or electricity) with your locked in rates.

How do I sign up?

Use our form to quickly request a natural gas quote or electricity quote—or call 1.855.466.2842. We will review your utility prices and usage, and see if the rates we can lock in for you are lower than the rates offered by the utility.

How do I start buying natural gas and/or electricity from Sprague?

Get started by requesting a natural gas quote or electricity quote—or by calling 1.855.466.2842. If you have questions about your utility's choice program, call them directly at the customer service phone number located on your natural gas and/or electricity bill(s).

How is Sprague's customer service?

Excellent. Sprague has a dedicated Customer Care group, so you can talk directly with a Sprague employee and get the answers to your questions. Our Customer Care phone line has an average hold time of 15 seconds! Call 866.477.7248.

What energy products does Sprague offer?

Sprague provides a full range of energy management options, including natural gas, electricity, diesel, heating oil, gasoline, solar offerings, and more for your business—while always keeping an eye on the bottom line.

What natural gas and/or electricity services does Sprague provide?

As a natural gas and/or electricity customer, Sprague will be your energy provider. Your utility will continue to provide the distribution of the energy to your business. Sprague is responsible for delivering the fuel (natural gas or electricity) to your utility —sourcing it from different geographies across the United States. We also have the ability to create customized energy management program for you, delivering an energy solution that best meets your requirements and appetite for risk. If you ever have emergencies or delivery issues with your gas and/or electricity, you would still contact your utility directly for support.

Where can I get more information?

If you want to explore the other energy products and services that Sprague offers, call us at 1.855.466.2842, complete our contact us form, or explore our website.

Can I easily get a copy of my contract Terms and Conditions?

Yes. Sprague sends out the Terms and Conditions to every new customer. We also keep a record of your Terms and Conditions on file. You can contact us anytime, and we’ll send you a copy.

Who is Sprague?

Sprague is one of the largest independent suppliers of energy products and related services in the Northeast. Founded in 1870 as a distributor of coal, Sprague now offers natural gas, electricity, diesel fuel, heating oil, and much more to businesses throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic. Our market and trading capabilities, coupled with a network of strategically located terminals and pipeline access, allow Sprague to respond to rapidly changing customer needs.

Will I save money buying gas and/or electricity from Sprague?

Most customers do. The savings depend on the utility's approved rate (which changes), your contract price, and when you purchase your gas and/or electricity supply from Sprague. However, with Sprague, you have options! You can either lock in your natural gas and/or electricity costs right now—or float with the market until the price is right for you, and then lock in the rate. If you continue to purchase your natural gas and/or electricity from your utility, you may not have the ability to lock in prices and avoid the market swings.

Will the service I receive from the utility change if I buy gas and/or electricity from Sprague?

No. You’ll receive the same quality service from your utility regardless of the company that provides your natural gas and/or electricity.
