In this Episode of Biz Pointz TV, host Larry Kortkamp interviews Bret Kortkamp, Managing Partner with National1 Energy, an independent energy advisor based in North Texas. National1 Energy is a specialty independent advisory firm that helps businesses save money by reducing their per-kilowatt-hour cost with a wholesale price rather than a retail price.

Commercial electricity can be quite complex and National1 Energy builds a custom contract price around the energy usage profile of each business as each business uses energy in a different way. There are substantial savings depending on the usage. Bret says that they can help every business reduce their electricity cost. One of their customers in Sundance Square saved $16 million on their electricity bills. A nail salon saved $500. It’s found money that can go toward the business elsewhere. For the 3,000 customers they have served in 2020, they saved the customers an average of 27%.

National1 Energy provides a free analysis of the bill and contract, with no cost to the customer. They can also renegotiate a new contract with the current supplier providing substantial savings with the electric company you are already with. All they need to get started are your bills and usage for the past 12 months.

Per Bret, the biggest challenge for businesses to save on their electric bill is the complacency that creeps in for business owners to stay on top of expenses. National1 Energy works with business owners to help them understand how much more they are paying for electricity than they have to and then helps them do something about it. Bret says what he loves about his job is he is trying to put money back into people’s pockets, not asking them to spend more.
