The American Coalition of Competitive Energy Suppliers (“ACCES”) continues to grow its consumer education initiative as competitive energy supplier, Santanna Energy Services, based in Austin, Texas, has joined the coalition as an Affiliate Member, as of August 15, 2014.
Santanna shares the commitment of ACCES members Great Eastern Energy, IGS Energy, Infinite Energy, SouthStar Energy, and U.S. Gas & Electric, to provide clear and accurate information about retail energy choice to consumers across the country. ”We are excited to be a part of this unique organization that is committed to customer education to improve the shopping experience for homeowners and business owners throughout the United States. ACCES’s approach in informing consumers of their energy options through its educational resources and direct consumer outreach includes the added benefit of improving the overall growth of the marketplace,” said Greg Rabey, Chief Operating Officer of Santanna Energy Services.
ACCES has continuously expanded its education efforts since its creation in 2011 and remains entirely focused on empowering consumers to make informed decisions that meet their needs when purchasing energy from competitive suppliers. ACCES members recognize the value of working cooperatively to create a unified, trustworthy, and knowledgeable voice that provides information about the benefits of competition to consumers, policymakers, the media, and other stakeholders.
“We continue to hear from consumers and other stakeholders of the critical importance of having an informed consumer. And as we see new markets restructure – whether in terms of allowing or expanding energy choice or introducing new options for consumers, like energy efficiency tools, smart grid-enabled devices, and distributed generation, the demand for consumer education will grow,” said Frank Caliva, spokesperson for the group. “ACCES provides a consumer-friendly website, educational videos, answers to frequently asked questions, and other resources for a range of stakeholders.”
ACCES (American Coalition of Competitive Energy Suppliers) is a group of competitive retail natural gas and electricity suppliers committed to consumer education and media outreach.
