Today’s energy industry is more complex and dynamic than ever before. Throughout this decade, Ohio energy consumers have seen natural gas rates plummet, electric rates fluctuate like an EKG, and new technologies appear with the promise to solve all your energy concerns. Commercial and industrial customers are left wondering what they should do, and perhaps more importantly, who they should listen to.
It is certainly a difficult task attempting to wade through all the noise. Most clients I work with share with me that on a weekly basis, and some cases daily, they are being contacted by solutions providers offering the moon. Each provider comes armed with the promise that they’re product or service is the optimal choice with the maximum achievable savings. Wise consumers quickly realize that each of these providers has a significant financial stake in getting them to sign on the dotted line. My clients are pushed, prodded, and pressured until they relent and sign a contract. It is a truly archaic way to do business today.
The current landscape in the energy industry is what ultimately led to the inception of EPCO, Energy Planners Company. Your business likely has many professionals you turn to for expert advice. You may have an attorney for you legal needs, a CPA for accounting, or IT professionals for your technology. At EPCO, we believe every consumer should have an energy advisor. EPCO provides you with a trusted source for reliable information about current market conditions and information on the most effective and tested industry solutions.
So who exactly is EPCO, and what do we do? The EPCO team often jokes that we are a for-profit entity with a non-profit mission. Our first priority is not the bottom line, but the needs of our clients. We consider ourselves an extension of our clients’ staff. We will focus on the solutions that you need and not those that are most lucrative for us. EPCO believes strongly in the notion of strong customer service. Ultimately, EPCO’s success will be measured, not in dollars, but length of relationship with our clients.
EPCO is a full service energy solutions firm committed to providing the best products and services available to our clients and partners. EPCO takes a holistic look at an entire facility or campus to choose the appropriate approach to create cascading savings and improve asset value. EPCO will help design a clear and customized business case for a deep energy retrofit through quantifiable savings and empirical research.
