WGES Broker Program
Presently, there are over 135 Brokers that work directly with Washington Gas Energy Services, Inc. (WGES) to supply large commercial customers with deregulated natural gas, electricity and renewable energy.
The primary responsibility of WGES Brokers is to present WGES bids to large commercial end-user customers and to arrange energy supply agreements between such customers and WGES based on such bids.
1. WGES Broker Application
If you are interested in becoming a WGES Broker, to initiate the process you would need to complete and submit a WGES Broker Application. You can submit this application directly online or download a hard copy (PDF) version and fax it to WGES at 703-793-0668. Apply online or download the application (PDF file).
2. WGES Broker Agreement (Base Agreement)
All WGES Brokers are required to execute the standard WGES Broker Agreement. Once the Application has been approved a Broker Agreement will be sent to you for signature. This Agreement stipulates the responsibilities and requirements for both WGES and the WGES Broker applicant. Additionally, this Agreement specifies the quarterly payment process that WGES utilizes to pay commission fees. If you would like to review a sample Broker Agreement, please contact WGES.
3. WGES Broker Addendum
For each deal (Confirmation Contract) the Broker arranges between WGES and the end-user customer, WGES will issue an addendum that will stipulate the commission fee that will be paid on the customer accounts contracted by WGES. The performance of each addendum is tied to the requirements of the WGES Broker Agreement. If you would like to review a sample Broker Addendum, please contact WGES.
4. WGES End-User Supply Contract
For each contract deal arranged by the Broker, WGES also executes an end-user contract with the customer. The contract documentation that WGES executes directly with the customer includes a Base Agreement and a Confirmation Contract. The Base Agreement is not "account specific". The Base Agreement stipulates the requirements and responsibilities for both WGES and the Customer for all Confirmation Contracts executed between WGES and the Customer. The Confirmation Contract is account specific. As noted in Section 3 above, each Confirmation Contract has a corresponding Broker Addendum associated with it. If you would like to review a sample End-User Contract, please contact WGES.
