How did your business get its start?
The owner, Dennis Giancola, worked for the gas company and later ventured out on his own to become the first independent broker in Ohio.
What makes Energy Deals, LLC unique?
We don’t work for the energy suppliers, we work for the consumer. We are consumer advocates because 90% of our job is consumer education.
What does "keep it local" mean to you and your business?
Keeping homegrown talent and business in our community.
What's the mission of your business?
To educate businesses and homeowners alike about their rights to choose their energy supplier and rates, the benefits of doing so, and the misconceptions about what is involved–and to assist them in the selection of those rate plans.
What might we be surprised to learn about your business?
When it comes to “firsts,” we are ahead of the game. Not only was our owner the first independent broker in the state, but Energy Deals is the first company to develop a technology that allows brokers to reach both businesses and residential households–and we have plans to be the first in our approach to consumer education, as well.
