Wattage Monitor Partners With printCafe to Save Printers Money On Electricity Bills
Press release from the issuing company
8/17/01 - Last week, Wattage Monitor reached an agreement with printCafe to launch a program called "Power to Printers!.” The service offers commercial printers competitive electricity programs that could yield significant reductions in their electricity bills.
Las Vegas based Wattage Monitor said it will first rollout as a free pilot program in Pennsylvania and will eventually be free to all printCafe customers nationwide. The program draws upon Wattage Monitor's proprietary national electric rates database. The database contains in-depth information about customer switching and electricity supplier pricing behavior. The company has over 75% of the nation's competitive electricity suppliers as participants and is able to provide information on all electricity offerings in any given market.
The Power to Printers! program makes it easy for printCafe customers to know their choices of electricity suppliers. Customers will visit a special website or call Wattage Monitor's toll-free hotline where they can learn about their choices, understand the special offers that have been negotiated on their behalf, and sign-up for new service.
Marc Olin, co-CEO of printCafe said the potential savings could be huge. “Our partnership with Wattage Monitor is one more way printCafe helps our customers achieve lower operating costs. Wattage Monitor will help our customers navigate the complexities of the electricity industry resulting in lower overall energy bills."
