HOUSTON, Jan. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- GDF SUEZ Energy Resources NA, the retail energy business of GDF SUEZ Energy North America, has unveiled a new feature-packed website at


The new site includes a wide range of high-value content designed to help commercial, industrial, and institutional electricity purchasers make better, more informed decisions about their energy choices. In addition to a vibrant new look, the updated site offers real-time and historical electricity pricing data, comprehensive interactive service area maps, and educational videos.

"We are dedicated to offering customers access to critical knowledge they need to understand and manage issues in the electricity marketplace," said Robert Wilson, President and CEO of GDF SUEZ Energy Resources. "This website reflects that dedication. It not only complements our ongoing educational seminars, but also provides another opportunity for customers to access tools that can give them more information about their energy consumption, risks, and costs."

Key features of the new site include:

  • Consolidation of real-time and historical wholesale market pricing data for all ISOs on a single page, updated every 15 minutes. This allows users to receive all the pricing information they need from one location rather than visiting multiple sites.
  • Detailed interactive maps that provide comprehensive deregulation data about each market where GDF SUEZ Energy Resources is serving customers. The information is provided at the ISO, state and county – and sometimes even city – levels, and shows the territories served by various utilities and where customers have the option of choosing an electricity provider.
  • A "Decision Economics" page that includes videos of educational seminars hosted by GDF SUEZ Energy Resources, as well as white papers and other instructional materials.
  • Full access to the company's social media communications, including Twitter, Facebook, and a dedicated YouTube channel that contains videos about topics ranging from how electricity is priced to how to better manage their energy spending.
  • Credit scorecards that allow customers to consider the financial strength and potential reliability of individual retail electric providers.
  • Up-to-date information on the new ERCOT nodal market in Texas that reflects both historical and real-time wholesale pricing.
  • Posting of the weekly Market Monitor and quarterly On The Horizon publications, and an easy process to subscribe to both.
  • Customer testimonials.
  • A remodeled corporate newsroom page.
