ECNG Natural Gas Program
The FRPO natural gas program is designed to protected members from the risk of higher gas prices while providing value in pricing options. Members benefit by keeping prices low and stabilizing costs. From an initial annual volume of just over 20 million cubic metres of gas in 1990, the FRPO program today contracts for approximately 85 million cubic metres for participating FRPO members in every region of the province. For over two decades, FRPO gas plan members have earned several million dollars in savings from this program.
ECNG Electricity Program
The electricity market is very volatile. Over the last decade, Regulated Price Program costs for both the Time of Use program and 2 Tier program have significantly. This type of volatility can create challenges to those housing providers that operate on tight budgets and in this uncertain market having a pricing strategy in place is key to controlling your costs and budget over time. To assist our FRPO members with managing energy budgets, we partnered with ECNG Energy L.P. over 20 years ago and have been providing stable and predictable natural gas pricing to members ever since.
Our organization provides members with excellent opportunities to connect with your peers and industry leaders, share property management tips with others in the industry as well as discuss trends and services at a variety of events. FRPO regularly hosts seminars as well as our annual golf tournament and always popular MAC Awards Gala. Be sure to keep an eye on our event calendar!
