Manufacturers Seek Cost Savings
Through Energy Cooperative

Manufacturer’s Association of the Jamestown Area
byTodd Tranum

(August 28, 2003) The Manufacturer’s Association of the Jamestown Area has announced a new partnership to help its members save money. MAJA has established a partnership with the Energy Cooperative of New York (ECNY) to purchase natural gas and electricity at cost.

“Energy costs are a big concern of our members and it is our goal through this partnership to reduce those costs,” stated Todd Tranum, Executive Director of the Manufacturers Association of the Jamestown Area. “We look forward to bringing value to our membership in partnership with the Energy Cooperative of New York.”

Joseph Mascaro, the Executive Director of ECNY stated, “ECNY is pleased to welcome manufacturer’s into the group. Their membership will further enhance the cooperative’s ability to purchase natural gas and electricity supply at rates which greatly benefit our members.”

ECNY is a not-for-profit organization that uses group buying to lower its members’ gas and electricity costs. The Cooperative combines all of its members into one group and then uses the energy consultant group, LepCorp, to enable them to purchase energy directly from the wholesale market. This method allows for smaller companies to save money without having to accrue a huge energy bill or have multiple accounts. In addition the members do not have to track their own usage, or worry about ordering too much or too little gas or electric.

The objective of the Manufacturers Association is to promote the common interests of the membership through the development of information and services of benefit to the members and the geographic area in which they operate. The Manufacturers Association is a pro-active leader committed to enhancing the economic strength of the region. The Association is a primary resource for information and assistance to promote manufacturing excellence.
