APPI Energy Achieves Impressive Milestone with 200th Borough Community

Salisbury, MD, [April 5, 2021] —APPI Energy is excited to reach another milestone in their energy program with the Pennsylvania State Association of Boroughs (PSAB), reaching 200 PSAB members who are utilizing their energy procurement and consulting solution services. PSAB is a statewide, non-partisan, non-profit organization dedicated to serving 956 borough governments, and has used APPI Energy’s energy procurement services for 10 years.

As the endorsed energy program for PSAB members, APPI Energy provides holistic energy management solutions to reduce energy expenses, reduce demand, and minimize budgetary risk. Additionally, APPI Energy offers unbiased, green apples to green apples comparisons of supplier prices and contracts, evaluating PSAB members’ energy-use history to negotiate favorable contracts with their stringently vetted suppliers. APPI Energy goes beyond procurement, with advanced, holistic services focused on improving sustainability for boroughs and municipalities, while also helping them to set and meet efficiency and sustainability goals. Through their team and their strategic vendor partnerships, APPI Energy provides customized, technology agnostic recommendations that aim to be most impactful based on demand and usage results from complimentary assessments. Moreover, their work for PSAB members does not end when the contract is signed. APPI Energy continues to monitor the market for future opportunities, as well as provide on-going customer support.

“The team of energy procurement professionals at APPI have successfully partnered with hundreds of our municipal members across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania,” said Chris Cap, Executive Director of the Pennsylvania State Association of Boroughs. “Their extensive due diligence efforts have allowed borough government leaders to strategically review energy supply contracts and effectively save precious public tax dollars that are so vital to our local communities.  The Pennsylvania State Association of Boroughs endorsed APPI Energy more than a decade ago, as we recognized the numerous complexities associated with global energy supply markets and how strategic procurement initiatives can be effective in helping to shield municipal budgets from unforeseen volatile energy market cycles. PSAB is proud of our ongoing partnership with APPI, as they consistently exceed the performance and business integrity benchmarks that we expect from all of our endorsed service delivery partners.”

With a long-standing relationship, APPI Energy attends to PSAB members by way of a dedicated, association consultant who is well-versed in the needs, goals, and strategies specific to boroughs and government leaders. APPI Energy consultant Noel Temple works closely with PSAB members to ensure all their operations are functioning efficiently, both now and in the future.

"APPI Energy provides us with competitive electricity procurement rates which offer our Borough substantial savings, most recently 21%,” said Chris Gable, Borough Manager for the Borough of Gettysburg. “Our consultant provides options and makes expert recommendations to get us the best price, by allowing a variety of suppliers to compete for our business. This can be a daunting task, and requires more time than we are able to give it, so the price APPI Energy can provide through their supplier relationships makes our decision a straightforward one. They provide our borough with savings, but also with budget certainty for years to come. We are very appreciative of APPI Energy.”
