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.
