Data-driven energy procurement and consulting solutions give distributors a competitive edge

Salisbury, MD, December 3, 2015—WIT & Co. announced its approval of consulting firm APPI Energy as a WIT Service Provider offering data-driven procurement solutions that reduce and manage energy costs for distributors. The APPI Energy database of daily supplier prices enables the firm to benchmark historical and real-time energy supplier prices in every deregulated energy market in the U.S. The firm has vetted and approved 54 energy suppliers to serve WIT distributors.

As a benefit to WIT owners, APPI Energy is available to analyze each independent distributor’s energy usage, evaluate energy bills, deliver apples-to-apples comparisons of supplier prices and contracts, and negotiate supply solutions. Founded in 1996, APPI Energy gives WIT distributors a competitive edge to make informed, customized purchasing decisions that manage costs on an ongoing basis. “My family, owners of Shore Distributors, is a longstanding WIT owner,” said Jane Morris Seagraves, APPI Energy Business Development Director. “I remember my parents attending WIT meetings when I was a child. I’m eager to begin working with WIT to add value for distributors.”

In addition to handling procurement so WIT distributors can focus on their core business, APPI Energy also provides ongoing customer service, handling any issues that arise with utility or supplier companies. APPI Energy data-driven procurement services are available in the following deregulated energy markets: California, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas, and Washington, DC.
