The Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber is pleased to announce, in partnership with FirstEnergy Advisors™, a new energy savings program for its members.  

Through its exclusive, online procurement and energy manager called “Sherpa by FirstEnergy Advisors™”, the FirstEnergy Advisors team works with businesses of all sizes to determine if they may save on their electricity costs. The team will solicit and review bids from energy suppliers/marketers, make data-driven energy recommendations and facilitate the contract and enrollment process. Our members will select transparent pricing, an analytics-based contract term and optimum supplier choice.   

“We are proud to be a preferred partner of the Regional Chamber and look forward to helping Chamber members save money on their commercial and industrial electric bills. We have the experience, knowledge and technology to give members an easy, transparent way to shop, and we don’t walk away when the sale is completed,” said Lorraine Rader, director of Sales at FirstEnergy Advisors. “Instead, we give you the advice and the technology to keep track of your electric contracts, offer ‘any time’ price checks and help you manage your electric spend.  We also help customers explore renewable choices and energy product options.”  

Hundreds of Chamber members are utilizing the organization’s cost-saving programs, including healthcare, shipping, office supplies and more, and the discounts offered are significant to their bottom lines.  

Kim Calvert, vice president of Marketing & Member Services at the Chamber, noted, “We are constantly reviewing our programs and looking at potential new programs to ensure we are offering our membership the best products and services with partners that support businesses as much as we do. We are so excited to launch our energy program with FirstEnergy Advisors, with a proven record of service and a dedicated team who will work with our members every step of the way.”
