Agera Energy sets itself apart from all other energy companies in a variety of ways. While the old way of doing energy business fell by the wayside, Agera decided that the time was right for them to entrench themselves in a better way of doing energy business. For Agera, this involved moving from a money-driven mindset to a customer-driven mindset. Their goal is to set up their customers, big and small, with the best energy products to suit their needs.
Another thing that Agera wanted to do differently is caring about the environment. Not just for their customers, but for themselves, their employees, their communities, and the future generation. Providing their customers with environmentally-friendly options, Agera seeks to not just offer basic energy solutions, but build lasting partnerships that benefit the environment too. One of these options is Agera’s Pure Wind program, which offers the renewable energy of wind farms. Another is Agera’s LED incentive program for customers which, depending on state, can take advantage of rebates when making the switch to energy-efficient LED installation.
Agera promotes a work culture that also values the environment, enacting a rigorous recycling program in-house as well as becoming Westchester Green Business certified, a prestigious environmentally-friendly certification. Agera wants to promote and practice both earth-friendly and people-friendly business that benefits both customer and employee alike.
