The randomly selected couple was surprised by the win and very excited by the announcement initially made by phone call. Matthew Williams said with smile, “Our luck usually isn’t this good! We needed a new refrigerator.”
The Vice President of Customer and Corporate Services, Allan Robinson, elaborated on energy conservation education and why partnering with the utility company can help customers to better manage their consumption. Mr. Robinson said, “We decided to launch The SmartConnect Program as a solution to some of the concerns being voiced by our customers. While we cannot control the fuel factor, we are making every effort to educate our customers on ways they can save on their energy costs.”
The FortisTCI SmartConnect Program is an information sharing and relationship building initiative that the Company has launched to focus on its customers’ needs. SmartConnect, paves the way for FortisTCI customers to learn about their utility company and about the smart use of energy at home and in their businesses. One way to learn more about this program is by signing up for a Connecting with You Customer Information Sessions held by request. If you have a group interested in hosting one of these sessions, please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Details can also be found at www.fortistci.com.
