A Message from Chamber
Choice: ChamberChoice Residential Energy Program Returns
The ChamberChoice Energy Program, managed by OnDemand
Energy Solutions, is in the final stages of negotiating
an agreement with a new energy supplier which will result
in the opportunity to re-launch a Residential Energy Program
for Chamber members in the near term. We are targeting
an effective re-launch of early November 2014. Residential
homeowners interested in this program should visit www.ondemandenergy.com
and click on the residential savings button. By entering
their contact information on the OnDemand Energy website,
homeowners will then be automatically notified with the
Official Program Launch and continuing residential program
offerings. By promoting the ChamberChoice Energy Program
negotiated residential rates to all residents; local Chamber
businesses will reap benefits, as homeowners with lower
energy bills will have more discretionary income to spend
at local Chamber businesses. Homeowners may also call
1-866-699-9968 to speak with a program representative.
