Annual Layers (available only through the graphic header, per current)
Annual Layers is a strategy in which energy is bought incrementally over time until each account is fully hedged to the client’s desired level. Each layer (strip) is comprised of a certain percentage of expected annual energy usage and can extend to projected usage over several years.
Monthly Layers (available only through the green bar under the graphic, per current)
Monthly layered hedging is a finely tuned strategy in which the % hedged will differ from month to month. This strategy involves identifying specific monthly pricing opportunities, rather than simply the weighted average of an annual strip. Executing this strategy requires a great deal of effort and is most suitable for larger accounts with high monthly volumes.
