"Mr. Burns brings 22 years of experience and expertise in the fields of natural gas and electricity to governmental aggregation programs. His knowledge and experience, coupled with his awareness of and sensitivity to residential energy customers' preferences, make it easy for a City to present a well-organized and cost-beneficial aggregation program to City residents.
Mr. Burns is always ready to personally assist the individual resident in joining or leaving an aggregate group. He is always willing to explain the program to those residents that may have questions. He understands that governmental energy aggregates are made of people, not numbers.
Mr. Burns watches the market trends and advises a governmental aggregator when to strike a price for an energy program. He tracks activity before the Public Utilities Commission and advises of issues that will impact municipalities so that we may address those issues. His advice and attention to our municipality has made my job much easier, and has resulted in professionally-run aggregate programs."

"Most people turn to a quality atlas or a reputable consumer magazine when they need help planning a trip through unfamiliar territory or making an important purchase, so I turned to Independent Energy Consultants.
IEC calmly, politely and successfully guided our city through every phase of our opt-in and opt-out natural gas aggregation programs. They also helped taxpayers, our city, and our council of local governments achieve significant savings on residential, small business and public building heating bills.
IEC and staff are consummate professionals, knowledgeable, certified, neophyte-friendly, always available to answer questions, and are always planning ahead. I give IEC two thumbs up, way up."
