Through the Chamber Energy Program, CEA provides Chamber members with Education, Savings, and Protection on both regulated and deregulated energy expenses. With a credible partner looking out for your bottom-line, you can enjoy peace of mind and "budget-ability" when it comes to your utility costs.
Education: The regulated and deregulated energy markets are increasingly complex. To aid you in remaining proactive, making informed decisions, and budgeting your utility expenses, CEA provides timely and relevant information.
Protection: To help protect you from scams, fraudulent activity, and unexpected costs, CEA provides informative emails, blog posts, and seminars.
Savings: Paying more than you should for electricity and natural gas can add up to thousands of lost dollars that you could be investing back into your business. The Chamber Energy Program creates "market power" by shopping members together, driving suppliers to compete for their business and ultimately reducing energy prices. Ensure you are paying the most competitive market rates by enrolling in the program!
To view available rates and enroll online today, simply grab a recent copy of your electric and natural gas bills, and click the enroll button below. Please note that if you are currently with the City of Wadsworth Municipal Electric utility, you are only eligible to shop your natural gas with the Chamber Energy Program.
