Frontier Communications Corporation (NASDAQ: FTR), the largest provider
of communications services focused on rural America, today announced
the availability of a cost-effective, clean energy supply through
FTR Energy Services. Customers will receive the same electricity and the
same service on the same bill from their trusted local provider, but FTR
Energy Services will provide green energy at affordable rates and 5
percent cash back on energy supply.
"Clean, renewable and affordable energy is something all customers want.
This opportunity offers consumers choice, affordable plans and the
ability to help the environment by knowing their energy supply is 100
percent green," said Ann Burr, President, New Product Trials and
Integration for Frontier.
Participating utilities by state (E= electric; G=gas) are:
Central Hudson (E&G)
Any consumer - not just Frontier customers -- may sign up
for either fixed or variable rate energy plans. Since energy is a
commodity with supply rates that fluctuate depending on weather and
market conditions, it is important customers select a plan that suits
them. They can make their choice using either an easy online tool or by
speaking to a trained FTR Energy Services customer representative
who will help them through the process.
"FTR Energy Services builds on Frontier
Communications' strong local relationships with customers. Communities,
customers, Frontier employees and shareholders will benefit from
this service. It is a great addition to our robust home and small
business offerings," said Burr. The switch to Frontier Energy Services
from a customer's current energy supplier is simple and easy. All
customer bills will still come from their current local energy utility.
FTR Energy Services is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Crius
Energy, a pioneer in telecom and energy relationships and the first
to recognize the consumer advantages achievable through broadband and
energy company partnerships.
