Reduce your gas and electric prices with group purchasing  


Due to the instability of the energy markets over the past several months, many organizations are signing up for programs with power and energy brokers such as Best Practice Energy and Power Options, the two energy management companies that CJP contracts with as a part of our Group Purchasing program. Due to the significant potential for natural gas and energy prices to keep rising through the fall and winter, as well as a general interest in sustainable energy sources, we encourage your organization to find out more about how you could save money and protect your resources with power and energy group purchasing.


Our contracted brokers could help you achieve over 50% savings compared to your organization’s current energy costs. If you are interested in learning more, please contact Tricia Rush from Power Options and/or Jordan Berman from Best Practice Energy.  


In addition to partnerships with power and energy providers, CJP is also pleased to offer you group purchasing discounts through Yankee Alliance and W.B. Mason. If you have general questions regarding our group purchasing program, please reach out to Nora Stolzman, Manager, Partnerships and Services at CJP.
