Congressional Country Club
Many of our members at Congressional Country Club understand managing risk in an uncertain future and planning appropriate courses of action. Buying a volatile commodity like electricity is really all about managing risk and looking for purchasing opportunities. We have been extremely pleased with the performance of our current energy contract, as OnDemand Energy monitors the energy markets on a daily basis. Over the past two years, we have been able to take advantage of declining power prices as we continue to purchase power in a prudent, risk-averse fashion.
Curtiss Flow Wright
With rate caps for electricity expiring in Allegheny Power, we were very concerned about the financial impact to our bottom line. In addition, our operations were transitioning and it was unclear how much energy we would be consuming in the future. OnDemand Energy was able to skillfully negotiate contract language, protecting us from the uncertainty in our usage patterns, and, to our pleasant surprise, they were able to negotiate a rate that was lower than the previous capped rate, saving in excess of $600,000 per year for our organization!

First Commonwealth Bank
First Commonwealth Bank has over 115 branch locations spread over four different electric utility territories, so trying to find energy savings with so many small and medium-sized meters in different locations was a daunting task. Thankfully, we were able to leverage the ChamberChoice Energy program, managed by OnDemand, as they already had pre-negotiated rates in each of the four utilities with immediate savings for the smaller branch locations, while they negotiated customized prices for our two larger branches! Brought to us by our membership in the Indiana County Chamber of Commerce, all branch locations are benefiting with energy savings thanks to OnDemand.
