Natural gas marketer saving Ohio businesses up to 15% on monthly electric bills

Our customers trust us to bring them value and we were never able to give them a competitive Ohio electric offer until now

Following a very successful trial run in Illinois, Volunteer Energy has entered the Ohio electricity marketing business. Working in conjunction with various electricity wholesalers, Volunteer is aggregating business customers' electricity as a way to save them up to 15% on their monthly bills. "This is a great opportunity for businesses in Northeast and Southern Ohio," said Richard Curnutte Sr., President of Volunteer Energy. "We recently aggregated a number of Wendy's locations in the Ameron/Illinois area, and saved them 10% on their electric rate, and now we're even more excited to bring a substantial savings opportunity to our Ohio customers as well," he said.

Volunteer Energy serves thousands of business and residential gas customers across the Midwest. "This really is the first time in Ohio that a significant gap has opened up in wholesale electric rates, allowing us to make this offer to our customers and other businesses who want to cut their energy costs," Curnutte Sr. said. The program will initially be available to business customers with a minimum load profile that can produce savings.

"This is exciting for us as a company, but even more important, we are pleased we can help our customers save money," said Tom Arnold, Director of Energy Management Services for Volunteer. Arnold, a twenty year energy manager at Wendy's, has extensive experience in negotiating discounted electric and gas rates. "Our customers trust us to bring them value and we were never able to give them a competitive Ohio electric offer until now," Arnold said. "If a business has the right load profile, which we can determine by analyzing their electric bill, then we can probably cut their rate," said Arnold. There is no charge for the analysis. A company can find out if they qualify for a lower price by submitting their bill to Volunteer Energy along with a signed authorization form.

The program is in effect now, and any businesses within the Cleveland Electric Illuminating, Ohio Edison, Toledo Edison, and Duke/CG&E service areas can contact Volunteer Energy to see if they qualify for a lower electric rate. The discounted rate will be good until May 31, 2011.
