Chamber Electrical Coalition

The Chamber Electricity Coalition offers a great advantage to Wharton Chamber members. Many of our members are small businesses, which may not have the buying power or time to negotiate the lowest prices possible for retail electricity. This is what the coalition does, negotiating on our members’ behalf for the best rates that the marketplace offers.

To those who already are Coalition members, thank you! If you have not joined thus far, we urge your consideration. Look for the links to the  “Easy Form” application and some additional information.

If you need help, call the chamber at 979-532-1862 or email ron.sanders@whartonchamber.com, or contact Jessica Dusek at 512- 676-0928 or Jessica.dusek@nrg.com. Thank you!
