Gus Fromuth holds a distinguished record of achievement in the energy field and is widely recognized as a pioneer in the industry. Over the course of his more than 30-year career, he founded four successful companies while driving energy market initiatives and staying true to his business philosophy of advocating for the client, adding value, and delivering best-in-class client service. He continues to work tirelessly to ensure that consumers and businesses alike have access to low cost and innovative energy options.
Prior to offering a diverse portfolio of energy advisory services at Freedom Energy, the company initially specialized exclusively in direct enrollment of clients into New England’s bulk power market providing them power at wholesale prices. Gus devised the innovative, cost-saving concept of direct end-user access to grid power in ISO-NE, defining and establishing the ground rules for direct market access by end user participants. On average, this Direct-to-Grid service saves clients 10-15% against retail electricity rates and continues to be a practical option for some power consumers today.
Gus has a long history of community service. In 2010, he was elected to ISO New England’s Consumer Liaison Group Coordinating Committee where he has been serving for over ten years. Previously, he was an officer of the New England Power Pool (NEPOOL) and a founding member of the End User Sector serving as Vice Chair for four years. He has also served on the ISO-NE Board Member Nomination Committee, an honor rendered for his extensive expertise in the New England electricity markets. In addition, he was nominated to serve on the National Energy Marketers Association (NEM) Executive Committee and has served as a Board Member for the Manchester Airport Authority, Northwest Trade Adjustment Assistance Center (U.S. Dept Commerce), and Manchester Police Athletic League. He is an active member of the Association of Energy Engineers, Manchester Rotary, and the NH Business and Industry Association.
Gus Fromuth is a graduate of George Washington University with a BA degree in Economics and International Affairs. He also completed advanced degree work in International Public Policy at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies.
