Analyze

As a national institution and tourist destination attracting more than 300,000 visitors per year, the National Baseball Hall of Fame (NBHOF) sought help to make sense of the deregulated energy market. With six different proposals from energy providers that seemed to speak six different languages, NBHOF needed to both understand the information and be confident it was getting the best possible energy price. Without the time, resources, or dedicated team in-house, NBHOF needed the expertise and partnership of a trusted energy advisor.


Strategize

Usource knew NBHOF needed to be able to easily compare rates and programs from across several potential energy suppliers. It also needed reassurance that it could indeed get an affordable energy price in the deregulated market. In the current economic climate where tourist traffic can fluctuate as consumers prioritize their spending, Usource knew how critically important it was for NBHOF to keep its costs down.


Deliver

Usource advisors clarified energy prices and offerings in an apples-to-apples comparison and secured an affordable energy price through its one-chance bid process. It also provided market updates on energy issues and energy-related programs to benefit NBHOF. In the coming years, Usource will help NBHOF keep costs down through its sealed-bid auction and offer continuing market intelligence. The companies’ positive relationship has led to an expanded partnership between Usource and the Leatherstocking Corporation, the parent company of Cooperstown’s most loved landmarks, including NBHOF.
