We’re pleased that American PowerNet has been able to negotiate several cost-savings option for our member businesses and organizations.  

Here is why many of your fellow members have taken advantage of the Chamber’s Electric Power Pool to cut their energy costs:

“The chamber power pool was one of the wisest decisions we made this past year in a challenging business year due to rainy weather for the golf industry”.  We saved at least 25% in the peak of our season when our previous electric supplier increased its rates.   The savings more than paid for our chamber membership…which I find a wise investment annually anyway with all the resources they have available to small business owners!  As a business owner, you have to love when good value gets better when you need it the most!”

“Chamber membership really does have its benefits. Balancing the time to administrate a healthcare practice and keep up with the ongoing changes in managing a business is a challenge. Our Business Manager and Practice Administrator are so pleased with how the Chamber has provided valuable cost saving opportunities to us. They made selecting an electric energy provider a seamless process, with little to no time spent by our staff, and a significant cost savings to our practice. We applaud the Berks County Chamber for all they do and the benefits they offer to our business. I highly recommend Chamber membership to all Berks County businesses, regardless of size.”
