Assess YOUR Goals.

Risk tolerance, financial needs, usage trends, and seasonal changes influence your needs and make your situation unique. This is when you need your consultant to listen to you. Without a good, sound understanding, all the budgeting in the world won't achieve your goals.

Analyze YOUR Options.

Every business is different; every client has different objectives and needs. This is why you need someone who can examine the data, trends, and acuity of your particular business needs.

Develop YOUR Plan.

Our strategy for your energy procurement and management is to make sure we plan for long-term as well as short-term goals, while considering the contracts and trends that affect the mid-term transitions.


Even after you make the best decision for now, that doesn't mean your situation won't change. Beacom Energy will stay on top of YOUR accounts and invoices, market and regulatory changes, customer service, industry and political conditions, plus economic influences that will affect YOUR Goals.

In 2000, Jean leapt into business ownership as a independent consultant. Exclusive to one Alternative Retail Energy Supplier, Jean's exerience and knowledge of power markets grew, including municipal aggregation, state procurement and management contracts, LEED projects, distribution needs, and wholesale power purchasing. Throughout, she learned the benefits of sound decision-making and the values of loyalty and customer service in day-to-day business relationships.

2013 was another big year for Jean as her company transitioned to better serve her clients by contracting with additional energy suppliers, all of which are Fortune 1000 companies, offering a comprehensive list of products and programs for her clients' energy needs. Additionally, Beacom was certified as a Woman-owned Business Enterprise (WBE).
