How does Breakerbox calculate savings?
Breakerbox makes no guarantee as to the accuracy of savings estimations. By continuing to use this website to procure your energy, you agree that the data provided is for informational purposes only and understand the risks involved in relying exclusively on Breakerbox's estimations. The process by which these savings estimates are made is as follows: Estimated future usage over the term of the proposed contract ("FU") Breakerbox uses the data you've provided and several assumptions described in the "Usage" section of this website to come to a normalized monthly usage amount measured in kilowatt-hours ("kWh"). We assume that future monthly usage is equal to historical monthly usage. We multiply this monthly usage amount by 12 to come to an annual usage estimate, also measured in kWh. Expected forward looking price to compare ("FPTC") Breakerbox uses third-party providers as well as its own proprietary processes to inform the presented estimates of forward looking prices to compare. Viewers of this data should expect that Breakerbox's predictive capabilities with respect to forward looking prices to compare are subject to standard heteroskedastic volatility across time. Selected Contract Price ("SCP") Breakerbox uses the contract's stated price as the SCP and does not account for projected volatility. Depending on several variables within the contract, the SCP may vary during the term of the contract. Annual Savings ("Savings") Savings = (FU * FPTC) - (FU * SPC) Breakerbox's estimate of annual savings is formed by the delta between the product of future usage and future price to compare AND future usage and future SCP.
