• Join the Chamber Energy Purchasing Cooperative

    The Chamber of Commerce has partnered with energy management experts, CQI Associates, to administer and manage the Chamber Energy Purchasing Cooperative. The increased purchasing power of the Chamber Purchasing Cooperative has allowed members to receive lower rates than they could typically attain on their own.

    On average, since 2004, the Cooperative electricity rates have been lower than both market rates and the weighted annual utility standard offer service rates. During our recent fall campaign participants saw a combined savings of $889,600.  Natural gas rates have also been lowered on average than market rates and utility monthly winter peak indexed rates.

    Presidential elections, erratic weather conditions and global tensions are making the energy market volatile. If you would like to stabilize your utility rates you should join the cooperative by participating in this next round of competitive supplier pricing.  The current campaign begins February 3, 2020 for both new participants and renewal members who have contract renewal dates through to December 2020.
