FRAMINGHAM, Mass.--()--Gulf Oil, the nation’s fastest growing branded marketer of petroleum products, today announced that its Gulf Electricity services, which were first made available in Connecticut earlier this year, are now available to Maine residential and commercial customers. The expansion of Gulf Electricity into Maine is part of the company’s ongoing strategy to diversify its energy offerings and provide the marketplace with cost-effective, efficient energy options.
“The energy world is changing rapidly and while petroleum will be a big part of our energy mix for years to come, as a company we remain committed to bringing our customers low cost energy alternatives that are safe, convenient and environmentally responsible.”
Beginning now, Gulf Electricity is offering Maine residential and small business customers the opportunity to enjoy savings on the energy portion of their power bills by switching from their traditional utility suppliers. Compared to high-cost third party suppliers, the savings could be significant.
According to Gulf Oil’s Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Rick Dery, “Gulf’s brand name has created trust for over 110 years. More than one million customers pass through a facility supplied or branded by Gulf every day and we look forward to providing yet another valuable service to them. When customers sign up to receive Gulf Electricity, they are signing on with a century old reliable company committed to providing excellent customer service and competitive rates.”
Dery continued, “Switching to Gulf Electricity is fast and easy. Moreover, customers will continue to receive their bills from their current utility, which will also continue to handle power delivery and repair services. The process takes less than five minutes and can be done by visiting www.gulfelectricity.com or by calling Gulf Electricity toll-free at 855-GULF-ELE (855-485-3353).”
“Our network of Gulf-branded outlets and company operated Cumberland Farms convenience stores in Maine, along with our expertise in sourcing and distributing energy efficiently, makes this expansion a natural complement to our existing businesses,” said Gulf Oil President Ron Sabia.
Customers interested in learning more about electricity can visit www.gulfelectricity.com. The website includes a Savings Calculator that will help them determine the annual savings they can expect by switching to Gulf. As part of Gulf Electricity’s entry into the Maine marketplace, customers who switch will also be eligible to win free electricity for a year.
“There is no change in power quality or reliability with Gulf Electricity. This is all about the convenience of receiving savings from a respected and trusted supplier,” said Mr. Sabia. “The energy world is changing rapidly and while petroleum will be a big part of our energy mix for years to come, as a company we remain committed to bringing our customers low cost energy alternatives that are safe, convenient and environmentally responsible.”
In Maine, Gulf Electricity is available in areas serviced by Central Maine Power and Bangor Hydro Electric. All new residential Gulf Electricity customers who enroll before the end of this year will automatically be entered to win free electricity.
