4Change Energy, a low-priced, Texas electricity provider that is committed to giving back to the community, has named the 4 charitable organizations that will benefit from its commitment.
The company, which began offering retail electricity services in August, is able to offer competitive electricity rates by having a simplified business model with primarily online services. It has set out to make a difference in the communities it serves by contributing 4 percent of annual profits to the local chapters of established nonprofits that fight hunger, fight cancer, provide disaster relief or help children who face serious illness.
“4Change Energy stands for providing low prices, an easy customer experience, worry free service and support for Texans who are in great need,” said John Geary, president of 4Change Energy. “By working with these 4 great causes, we, along with our customers, can make a significant impact to support their charitable missions and to make a lasting change for Texans in need.”
The organizations that will share 4Change Energy’s giving are the local chapters of:
· Texas Food Bank Network.
· American Cancer Society.
· American Red Cross.
· Heroes for Children.
4Change Energy customers can choose which of the 4 charities they would like to receive the company’s support. The company tallies up the customer votes and divides its profit sharing contributions to the charities based on its customers’ preferences. These contributions from 4Change Energy will flow to the Texas communities where 4Change Energy operates.
