TRSA partner APPI Energy has been a trusted source of superior, independent consulting services that decrease energy expenses since 1996. Endorsed by 140 National and Regional Trade Associations including TRSA, the firm manages 5.5 billion kWh and 10 million dekatherms of natural gas for more than 3,300 clients nationwide.

Electricity and Natural Gas Procurement
APPI Energy retrieves and reviews your company’s current utility account information and usage data to develop and implement an individual procurement strategy customized to your operation. The firm’s experience selecting sources for businesses in various locations and industries reduces your risk of choosing an unreliable supplier or receiving non-competitive prices.

APPI Energy submits pricing requests to many energy suppliers, forcing them to compete for your business, saving you time and money. The firm then processes timely responses from these suppliers, ensuring an apples-to-apples comparison and recommending the one that best meets your needs. All paperwork is managed, facilitating a seamless transition to your new supplier. Thereafter, energy markets, suppliers, and prices are monitored to provide you with ongoing customer service.

Demand Response
A firm corporate commitment to electricity conservation can result in payments to your company for such efficiency. Through APPI Energy, you can find the perfect match for your operation with a curtailment service provider to deliver demand response (DR) program income to you. On hot summer days when electricity prices and loads are high, DR programs make payments to utility customers like you who voluntarily reduce their consumption. You do so by shutting down equipment, adjusting down or off your lighting or HVAC, or operating on-site generators.

Facility Audits
APPI Energy works closely with facility audit experts who provide technical and engineering resources to analyze and implement programs that reduce energy demand. Such audits examine ways to:
- Modernize old systems and equipment.
- Improve the environment within the facility.
- Improve the quality of environmental emissions.
- Increase efficiencies.

Money-saving alternatives recommended following this audit may include HVAC and lighting upgrades, additional use of variable frequency drives, energy management systems, utility monitoring, peak load scheduling, insulating, duty cycling and co-generation.

Green Energy
APPI Energy clients can add Green Energy as part of any purchase strategy. In deregulated competitive electricity states, it can be included in a standard RFP, in increments of 10, 25, 50 or 100 percent. Often, 10 percent Green can be added with little to no price premium.

For clients already within procurement agreements or in non-deregulated electricity states, the purchase of renewable energy certificates (RECs) can provide green energy. RECs represent the environmental attributes that are created when electricity is generated using renewable sources such as wind, solar, or hydro. Pricing is based on several factors including type and location of energy and market supply and demand.
