February 02, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Buffalo, NY- February 2, 2012- Award-winning Energy Curtailment Specialists (ECS) and BidURenergy, Inc. (BUE) have come together to create powerCONNECT, a referral-based program designed for service providers, consultants or others that wish to offer energy procurement or demand response services to their clients. Through this program, the powerCONNECT partner will earn additional revenue when they refer a customer, business associate, or anyone they know that signs with ECS or BUE.

ECS is the largest private demand response provider in North America, offering risk-free and no-cost programs to all types of businesses interested in earning payments for participating in demand response. Customers are paid to reduce energy during volatile times on the grid in an effort to prevent potential blackouts. BUE is the fastest growing energy consultant in North America, bringing low energy rates and big savings to more than 10,000 client facilities across the country. Leveraging its size and mass, BUE acquires the lowest rates on electric and natural gas for customers through their PowerPit! blind auction platform.

Channel Partners participating in the powerCONNECT program will not only earn cash for referrals, but ECS' and BUE's knowledgeable sales staff will provide training support and marketing materials to assist partners through every step of the process. Clients also benefit by receiving points toward their LEED certifications through demand response program and green energy providers. PowerCONNECT representatives remain in constant contact with channel partners to ensure all key personnel are up to speed on program updates and market information.
