Congressional Country Club
Dean Davidson | Chief Financial Officer
Many of our members at Congressional Country Club understand managing risk in an uncertain future and planning appropriate courses of action. Buying a volatile commodity like electricity is really all about managing risk and looking for purchasing opportunities. We have been extremely pleased with the performance of our current energy contract, as OnDemand Energy monitors the energy markets on a daily basis. Over the past two years, we have been able to take advantage of declining power prices as we continue to purchase power in a prudent, risk-averse fashion.

Greg Carns and B.J. Rottschaefer | Senior Supply Buyer and Senior Facility Engineer
With rate caps for electricity expiring in Allegheny Power, we were very concerned about the financial impact to our bottom line. In addition, our operations were transitioning and it was unclear how much energy we would be consuming in the future. OnDemand Energy was able to skillfully negotiate contract language, protecting us from the uncertainty in our usage patterns, and, to our pleasant surprise, they were able to negotiate a rate that was lower than the previous capped rate, saving in excess of $600,000 per year for our organization!
First Commonwealth Bank
Steven Smith | Vice President
First Commonwealth Bank has over 115 branch locations spread over four different electric utility territories, so trying to find energy savings with so many small and medium-sized meters in different locations was a daunting task. Thankfully, we were able to leverage the ChamberChoice Energy program, managed by OnDemand, as they already had pre-negotiated rates in each of the four utilities with immediate savings for the smaller branch locations, while they negotiated customized prices for our two larger branches! Brought to us by our membership in the Indiana County Chamber of Commerce, all branch locations are benefiting with energy savings thanks to OnDemand.

Villa Saint Joseph
Sister Mary Murray
As a nonprofit entity, Villa Saint Joseph must exercise constant vigilance in controlling our operating expenses; utilities are no exception as they are a large part of our budget. Realizing that we have no experience or expertise in the commodities markets, we have relied solely on OnDemand Energy. They have managed both our natural gas and electricity purchases for more than 10 years now. OnDemand has been instrumental in promoting competition and extending our commodity contract purchases through optimal market timing.
And it does not stop there. OnDemand's Utility Management Services Program promotes energy conservation as well. They have invested capital dollars in our facility by purchasing and maintaining energy assets such as HVAC control systems, Power Factor Correction and Lighting systems.
Their unique offering, called a Guaranteed Energy Bill, provides us with one fixed, monthly bill which delivers energy efficiency, energy consulting and budget certainty.
OnDemand has proven to be both a true partner and our trusted energy advisor.
