How To Become an Energy Broker

About the energy industry:



What do Energy Brokers do?:

An Energy Broker is an intermediary between energy suppliers and consumers. They do not own or distribute energy to the consumer and they cannot sell energy directly to the consumer. Energy Brokers negotiate the best energy rates with energy suppliers and then present it to the consumer.


What Skills Does an Energy Broker Need?

What Type of Training or License Do I Need?

To become an Energy Broker independently, you need to obtain a broker's license. License and registration requirements vary by state. Generally you will fill out multiple forms and pay a fee. 

To become an Energy Broker with BrokerX, there is no license needed. We are a brokerage and are licensed in all deregulated states. Therefore, your own license(s) is not needed and you can start selling immediately.

What Do I Need to Be Successful as an Energy Broker?

Becoming a successful broker takes a lot of work. You need to be a self starter and entrepreneurial minded. Previous experience cold calling and selling is very helpful. 


How Do Energy Brokers Make Money?

What Does Commissions Work?

Energy Brokers negotiate the consumer's energy pricing with energy suppliers. 


How Much Money Do Energy Brokers Make?

Because this job is only commissions based and there is no cap to how many deals you can win, your salary has unlimited potential. Additionally, if you are able to refer other Energy Brokers to BrokerX, then you will earn a portion of the referral's commissions as well, providing you with supplemental income.
