We are pleased working with Nadia for working with us. We are unfamiliar with the energy market in Texas and was taken back that we would need to enter in an agreement to receive power. However, Nadia took the time to educate and guide us through the entire process but she helped us realize and strategize to reduce our utility cost by $78,459 per term of our new agreement with a compatible energy plan over the span of 5 years! We are so THANKFUL of Nadia and her team in assisting us.

I’d like to this opportunity to share our experience working with our with our dedicated account manager, Scott. Scott had not only taken our calls on the weekday but also on the weekend. He helped and represented us with securing a power agreement and while creating a actual budget for all our vendors especially for our electricity expenses, the clarity and relief he brought me was so enriching and valuable. He not only provided documents and forms ahead of time for us to fill out every time we would need to get power running for our new locations but he made sure we received permit approvals for our new site. Scott was extremely thoughtful, resourceful and clever throughout the entire process. As a owner and operator of multiple Chick-Fil-A restaurants, I'm extremely pleased by delegating our utility needs with Scott.

Our electricity agreement expired and we’ve been paying a variable rate unbeknown to us without any warning from our supplier. Both Alyssa and Mo represented us on our behalf against our existing supplier and we got reimbursed $18,000 and was able to get us a much lower price than what we were getting charged. I cannot thank Alyssa and Mo enough for educating us, negotiating and recovering wasted energy cost. Thank you so much and we’re looking forward in working with you guys again!
Director of Finance, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory
Partnering with NEA provided us insight on purchasing electricity on a whole new level. We took heed on the advice and counseling from our account manager and forward budgeting our cost. We’ve been impressed by the meticulous and high attention to detail surrounding our agreements. One of the methods that we pursued was to include our energy load and blend it with simliar hotels within the same geographical territory, tariff classification and lapsing contract time, as of a result we secured a total of $612 of immediate energy savings per month for the life of our agreement. Not to mention the complementary monthly utility auditing! I greatly appreciate the savings the guidance and the customer service we’ve received. Thank you Mo! God Bless.

I do not believe we could or have ever produced the same outcome if it had not been for NEA. I was surprised to discover how many retail electric providers are out there and what type of energy products exist. As a Controller, my job entails overseeing the finances and that includes vendors and vendor expenses. Our site locations were being billed by different retail electric providers, different prices and different terms. NEA conducted an RFP bid on our behalf, leveraged our purchasing power and obtained a centralized vendor that will service all 17 of our site locations into one master bill, one price and one expiration. I am so thankful for all the patience, savings and simplifying our vendor process so effectively!!!!
Owner, Freddy's Frozen Custard and Steakburgers
NEA has been a fantastic partner for us. I’ve outsourced my energy procurement to a consultant and the comparability between our last consultant and NEA is unmatched. NEA proposed to us the cost differences, bill audit services at no cost and provided us with market insight to which we were clueless on. I was able to contract $41,522 worth of company savings because we were notified on future-savings that were available. NEA was not only able to reduce our expenses but manage our contracts, invoices and gave some awesome tips during our gym session!
VP Of Finance, Crunch Fitness
Crunch was founded in 1989 as a fitness studio by Doug Levine, a former stockbroker. The clubs became popular by appealing to young upscale members and featuring heavy promotions and marketing with some humorous and sexual connotations. They were initially profitable in large part due to successful promotion of logo merchandise sales within the clubs. In 2010, Crunch launched its franchise arm to bring the company’s fitness experience to locations around the country at an affordable price point, with memberships starting at $9.95 per month. In the process, they helped develop a fitness market segment that offers classes and amenities previously associated primarily with high-end gyms at a lower price point.
