The National Leader in Auction-Based Energy Procurement

Rowing team on the boat

Our Story

Welcome to Transparent Energy, your trusted energy-procurement partner. With unwavering dedication to excellence and innovation, Transparent Energy has grown steadily from a small, self-funded startup in 2009 to become the national leader in auction-based energy procurement, providing clients a superior, cost-effective way to buy renewable and traditional energy and natural gas to power their operations.

So what makes our auction-based approach to procuring energy so good? First, because we work regularly with the most extensive pool of qualified energy suppliers in the industry, we are able to attract more of them to bid on your business. Second, our online auctions stoke real-time competition, with each supplier having to bid down their price to win your business. This combination is unbeatable in energy procurement: Transparent Energy brings in more suppliers to compete for your business, then compresses their margins in a heated online battle – with every bid visible to you, the customer – to deliver you the best price.

And, yes, there is more to the magic than the auction itself (though that is an amazing part of it, and one you as a client will get to witness firsthand). At Transparent Energy, we believe that procuring energy is more than just a transaction; it’s an intricate process that demands precision and expertise. With decades of experience and a profound understanding of the energy landscape, we have reimagined energy procurement, enabling energy buyers to navigate the volatile markets with ease and confidence.

We are obsessed with process perfection. By continuously refining our process, we ensure that our clients always receive the best pricing for their electricity, natural gas, and renewable energy needs and the highest quality experience.

Our highly qualified staff tracks trends and changes in energy markets and energy policy to bring clients up-to-the-minute information that allows them to seize desirable price opportunities when they occur.

At Transparent Energy, we commit to never wavering in our pursuit of excellence. We don’t settle for the “traditional” energy procurement route, opting instead for a bold process that focuses on each client’s individual needs and goals, and delivers superior results.

Corporate Responsibility

At Transparent Energy, corporate social responsibility is at the heart of our business principles. We believe in making a positive impact, and this commitment drives our actions. From implementing sustainable business practices to supporting community initiatives, we are dedicated to being responsible corporate citizens.

One way Transparent Energy supports the communities in which we live, work, and do business is by selecting and supporting a different charity each quarter for which we raise funds, contribute staff volunteers, or both. This initiative is powered by our valued staff, with one employee randomly selected each quarter to choose the charity of his, her, or their choice. This is an ongoing program. Recent initiatives we are proud to have supported include: One Mission, Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance (OCRA), Community Food Bank of New Jersey (CFBNJ), American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).

We are also proud donors to JDRF, and Clifton Schools. And through our valued partnerships, we are honored to support the Forging Industry Educational and Research Foundation, and SMA Foundation.
