COMMERCIAL ENERGY CO-OP PROGRAM
Have you looked at your utility bill lately? Rates are going through the roof!
Unprecedented temperatures, the war and the economy continue to escalate utility prices to historic levels. CQI’s 25-plus years of experience with proven results provides the best option for stabilizing your utility expenses. There is no better time for members to enroll in the Chamber Energy Purchasing Cooperative Program and gain price stability, budget control and peace-of-mind.
The Chamber of Commerce has partnered with nationally recognized energy management experts, CQI
Associates, to administer and manage the Chamber Energy Purchasing Cooperative. Competitive rates are
obtained by leveraging aggregated usage from members of 23 Chambers of Commerce. The group purchasing
power allows members to receive lower rates than they could typically attain on their own.
Since 2004, the Cooperative electricity rates have been lower than both market rates and the weighted annual
utility standard offer service rates. During our previous campaigns, participants saw an average annual savings
of $4,000. Natural gas rates were also lower on average than market rates and utility monthly winter peak

"Being an active member of the Chamber is such a meaningful & rewarding experience. The number of resources, networking opportunities, and connections throughout the county that come with being a member has made my time here well spent. Along with the Chamber’s resources, I’ve also received an enormous amount of support during the pandemic and with my business that I would not have received without my membership."
Heidi Hiller, CEO of Innovative Party Planners
"The Greater Baltimore Chamber of Commerce has given me a greater appreciation for entrepreneurship and insight into running a small business. The networking opportunities are priceless. I’ve had the privilege to meet so many like-minded business owners who are passionate about their craft. I’ve been a member since 2018 and have witnessed the chamber go through so many obstacles and changes, but the camaraderie, support, and willingness to rally together in tough times really sets this chamber apart. As a business owner, it’s refreshing to know that this resource exists whose mission is to help us thrive and grow through networking, partnerships, and giving back to our community."

GBCC connects me with business owners and consumers in the community and fosters the relationship-building process. I find colleagues and business partners within the Chamber, and more importantly, reach clients outside the organization. My GBCC membership keeps my services and brand ‘top of mind’ and is a key aspect of my direct and drip marketing efforts. I show up and participate, and the GBCC model delivers."

These types of organizations are meant to be more than just a title, more than just a resume builder, but an impactful experience, and that can be found here.
