Energy Reverse Auction

In the wake of the energy deregulation in many states across the country, businesses now have the choice and the ability to drive down energy costs as much as 30% or more. However, when listening to our clients we found out that the process of researching and selecting an alternative energy supplier was extremely time consuming and at the end of the process, there is still uncertainty as to whether they secured the lowest rates they could.

There is a better way! We have a unique approach to helping our clients' research and secure the lowest energy (electricity and natural gas) rates in the market. We simply pull all of the energy suppliers into a virtual room to participate in a reverse auction, on your behalf. To get started, visit the LLB Group Energy Center: www.LLBGroup.EMEXAuction.com.

The entire process only takes about 15 minutes.

  • 5 minutes to email the LLB Group your latest energy invoice for each meter.
  • 5 minutes for the reverse auction to take place, live on your computer.
  • 5 minutes to review the results: Supplier terms, rates, contracts, and savings analysis.
