Amerex Energy Services doesn't sit on the sidelines or conduct its business in a vacuum. The value we deliver to our clients comes not only from our experienced, knowledgeable and passionate team, but also from being an active participant in our industry. We believe that by being involved in various organizations which seek to advance our industry, we become more knowledgeable and able to move deregulated markets forward, and in turn further help our clients."
In 2005, Amerex Energy Services was one of eleven founding members of the Texas Electricity Professionals Association, subsequently renamed The Energy Professionals Association (TEPA), a non-profit industry association assembled to establish guidelines and standards for conducting business ethically and fairly in a new and rapidly growing industry sector. TEPA promotes standards and programs to benchmark the industry at the highest levels of training, operational procedures, ethics, and professionalism. The Association endeavors to promote a vibrant forum for self-regulation and discussion of important issues to the advancement of the industry. The continued development of working relations with retail suppliers and governmental agencies to promote continued expansion of competitive markets, while facilitating consumer’s choice in deregulated markets, is an important facet of TEPA. The stated goal of TEPA is to establish standards and enhance knowledge of the indirect sales channel industry participants (aggregators, brokers and consultants) while upholding the integrity of deregulated retail energy markets.” Amerex continues to be actively involved with TEPA, and currently holds a seat on the Standards and Compliance Committee.
Amerex Energy Services is proud to be a member of the Compete Coalition. The COMPETE Coalition is comprised of 715 electricity stakeholders, including customers, suppliers, brokers and consultants, traditional and clean energy generators, transmission owners, trade associations, technology innovators, environmental organizations and economic development corporations – all of whom support well-structured competitive electricity markets for the benefit of our country. Competitive electricity markets deliver economic and environmental benefits to consumers. These markets have been restructured to promote competition among energy market participants, while maintaining strict regulatory oversight. In competitive markets, power suppliers compete against each other to provide the best possible service at the lowest cost in order to attract and retain customers. Comparatively, in monopoly-regulated states, incumbent power providers have no incentive to innovate or lower costs because ratepayers are captive to their monopoly-protected supplier. Competition in electricity markets fosters innovation, clean energy solutions, green jobs, and competitive rates. It also enables retail customers to shop for innovative energy management solutions and helps lower costs and preserve jobs.
