Commercial Businesses Turn to Energy Co-Ops for Huge Savings

Thursday, January 31st, 2013

For any company, paying utility bills is a customary albeit costly aspect of keeping work operations in order. Across the States, for a long time, business owners had to pay local utility companies for their natural gas and electricity needs – and then, the prices were dictated by the Public Service Commission. Thanks to electric deregulation laws issued in the late 1990s and early 2000s, business owners – and consumers of all sorts – can source energy from a self-selected supplier. This makes it possible for companies to take advantage of what a commercial co-op has to offer. What does this mean for them?

-Fixed rate monthly fee for electric and gas bills, which won’t fluctuate while under contract, in spite of changes in your energy use.

-Lower utility costs due to the combined purchasing power of the group.

-Access to clean, renewable, wind powered electricity with select energy cooperatives.

CQI Associates is a leading energy consultant providing access to residential and commercial energy cooperatives in energy deregulated states across the U.S. By aggregating the kilowatt load of each business in the co-op, CQI is able to negotiate overall utility costs to a low and fair price. Below, see the list of areas we service with our cost-effective commercial energy co-ops:

Renewable Energy News: The Current State of Geothermal Energy in the U.S.

Sunday, September 23rd, 2012

In its simplest form, geothermal energy is heat from the Earth. This clean and renewable energy source is harnessed commercially and converted into electricity. And while geothermal energy use accounts for just 1% of the total United States electric production, with a current installed capacity of 3,187 MW spread throughout nine states, geothermal use has grown by 3% annually over the past 10 years.

The future of geothermal energy is bright and for good reason. Unlike other renewable energy resources, like wind and solar power, geothermal energy has far fewer variables. While wind power and energy power are affected by nature, geothermal energy is available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

Geothermal power is economically attractive, as well. Geothermal electricity is the lowest cost renewable power source around, providing long-term fixed power prices. Oh, and did we mention that geothermal energy can also help reduce the U.S. dependence on foreign fuels?

Still, despite all of its benefits, geothermal energy is a very small piece of the U.S. energy puzzle. But that could change in the near future…
