If someone were to quiz you on three energy buzz words, you might think you solved the test by proudly exclaiming “non-wires alternatives!” In this case, you’d be wrong. Our February Clean Energy NH member spotlight claims the top three energy buzzwords: Freedom Energy Logistics.
Dissecting each word of the company’s name provides a solid overview of their work. “Freedom” can refer to the company’s consulting and procurement services that help its clients choose energy options that suit their cost preferences and renewable energy priorities. “Energy” can refer to the company’s unique methods of electricity and natural gas supply purchasing, as well as their renewable energy options. “Logistics” can refer to the way they advise their customers on ‘how and when’ to intelligently purchase electricity. Add these three buzzwords together and you have Freedom Energy Logistics, twice named to the INC 5000 list in 2017 and 2018.
Founded in 2006, Freedom Energy Logistics has fourteen years of experience serving some of the region’s largest manufacturers, municipalities, and businesses. As an energy management firm, Freedom’s 25 employees help clients make the most cost-effective decisions on where to source power.
Some of those 25 employees are young energy professionals, welcomed into the “Freedom Family” from partnerships with local colleges and universities. Freedom sees it as their corporate responsibility to help develop the future work force and leaders of New Hampshire by investing and empowering their employees to better themselves, refine their skills, and ultimately advance their careers. Freedom earned the “Coolest Company for Young Professionals” in 2018 by Stay, Work, Play.
Headed by father-son team August (Gus) and Bart Fromuth, Freedom Energy Logistics joined Clean Energy NH in 2020 after serving as the Premier Sponsor of the 2019 Local Energy Solutions Conference, the state’s largest conference for clean energy. Freedom offers a range of “green energy” services for clients seeking to reach renewable energy goals. These include efficiency upgrades (through partners offering efficiency services), direct-to-green/virtual net metering, a unique power-purchasing agreement between clients and local renewable generators, and green energy contracts.
Freedom also offers services relating to another three-term energy buzzword: Community Choice Aggregation (CCA). Under CCA, local governments can procure and provide electricity to their residents and businesses on a competitive basis. CCA programs can harness private sector innovation to lower costs for customers and provide other energy services. Clean Energy NH is proud to work alongside members like Freedom Energy Logistics to provide important education and technical assistance for the future of CCA.
