Chamber offers electric discounts to members (up to 8%)

Electric aggregation program

The PUCO has asked electric providers to come up with innovative ways to create a competitive (open) marketplace and too demonstrate that they are taking steps in that direction.  One such step that FirstEnergy has taken is to develop an electric aggregation program, the FirstEnergy Electric Savings Program.  By working with larger organizations like the Greater Springfield Chamber, it is offering discounts on their electricity (generation) to consumers – both commercial and residential.  But – it is only through organizations like the Greater Springfield Chamber that this discount can be obtained. 

Average savings $400 for biz per year (and $100 per residence per year)

Each Chamber business that signs up will save up to 8% of its electric bill.  If a business is a particularly large user, a FirstEnergy representative will work out with them an individual plan, which may mean even more savings.  It is expected that the average annual savings will be about $400 per year.   Another great benefit is that the employees of the Chamber business can also sign up and receive a discount, which averages about $100 per year in savings per household.
