On November 16th, Freedom Energy Logistics attended the MFAA Fall 2021 Conference/Expo. For those unfamiliar with the organization, the MFAA is the Massachusetts Facilities Administrators Association, and their mission is “the development of closer professional relationships, exchanges, and understandings among those concerned with the care, operation, and maintenance of municipal buildings and grounds.”
The 3-day event was filled with seminars and expos for municipal attendees to learn about the latest products and services being used by their colleagues across the Commonwealth. This year there were four tracks attendees could participate in that included sessions on procurement, leadership, maintenance, energy, and (not surprisingly) even one on COVID-19.
Brian White, Municipal Program Director at Freedom Energy, was also in attendance and noted, “School administrators and facility directors have faced one of the most challenging years in history trying to navigate what was best for students and faculty during the pandemic. In a seemingly unfair turn of events, they are now faced with difficult decisions regarding energy and budgets.”
The current energy crisis has left many shaking their heads and looking for answers. The common theme of our discussions with attendees was how can Freedom Energy help them reduce costs in a rising market. Luckily, we have a few renewable offerings in Massachusetts that do offset costs (up to 10% of the total utility bill) and can strategize on a plan that may take each entity’s unique profile into account. We look forward to continuing our conversations with those we met at MFAA 2021 and seeing everyone again in 2022.
