Good Energy, a national government energy aggregation consulting firm, supported the 50th anniversary New Jersey Conference of Mayors spring conference as a platinum member. Held on April 24-26, 2013 at the Borgata Hotel in Atlantic City, this conference provided an excellent opportunity for mayors to discuss important state and federal issues in an open forum. The open nature of this event also promoted government transparency and awareness, allowing mayors and citizens alike to discuss these important topics.
In addition to its role as a platinum member, Good Energy also provided a speaker for the improved energy efficiency panel and the business council session. Charles De Casteja, managing partner for Good Energy, spoke on the panel about the benefits of government energy aggregation, and showed an informative video explaining how government energy aggregation actually works. the primary focus of the council session, meanwhile, surrounded potential enhancements to the current government energy aggregation laws. It was an interesting discussion focused on helping residents to save money.
Representatives of Good Energy spoke with almost 100 mayors about aggregation throughout the conference. The representatives dispelled a number of rumors and explained in plain dollars how aggregation saves money. There was a serious interest in aggregation expressed by many mayors, especially with the success it has had in other states. Many mayors also expressed an immediate interest in government energy aggregation, as it could be an effective tool to help citizens offset the potential tax increases looming in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.
