SIMONA AMERICA Inc. is the United States subsidiary of SIMONA AG, a German company and one of the leading manufacturers and distributors of thermoplastic semi-finished parts. As a leader in the industry, the company is continually seeking out ways to improve its resource management – and that includes its energy expenses.

Prior to contacting Applied Energy Partners, SIMONA AMERICA had been handling its energy procurement through a traditional energy broker, and they had – for the most part – been satisfied with the results. However, as a member of the Manufacturers and Employers Association (MAEA), the financial management team at SIMONA AMERICA was introduced to Applied Energy Partners, our reputation in the energy industry, and our proprietary reverse auction process, The Energy ExchangeSM. As a result, the company reached out to us to take advantage of our free consulting offer.

We reviewed their agreement with their current energy broker and found that they had received a reasonable price for the contract – but we believed that with our competitive network of suppliers, we could get them a better price. Operating in the same market conditions, thanks to the competition inherent to our system, we secured a 3-year contract that delivered an incremental 8% savings – almost $200,000 – over the contract term. In addition, we agreed to monitor bills for the remaining two years of their current contract, although we were not the broker of record.

That’s the advantage of working with a professional energy consultant, instead of just a broker. We know:

  • WHEN to buy.  We track energy market trends every day, and we advise you how and when to use the trends to your advantage.
  • WHERE to buy. We know the strengths and weaknesses of every energy supplier in your area, and our proprietary auction process creates intense head-to-head competition among them.
  • HOW to buy.  We help you avoid the landmines in contract language, regulatory changes, tax exemptions, and billing errors.

With The Energy ExchangeSM, we don’t only deliver the so-called “lowest price” – we share every price, including every supplier, every contract option, and every available term length. As suppliers compete for your business, you’ll gain valuable insights into the key issues of energy procurement. All with minimal investment of your time.
