Kent County Recognizes Realgy’s Safe Business Practices

PRESS RELEASE

Kent County Recognizes Realgy’s Safe Business Practices

24 JULY 2020 | BY: REALGY, LLC

Realgy’s Michigan Sales Team Before and After

Safety comes first at Realgy Energy Services for employees and for customers. Even when new challenges arise such as the current Covid-19 outbreak. The company’s Grand Rapids, MI sales team is no exception. Through the Kent County Back to Work Initiative, Realgy qualified to receive assistance with provisions of personal protective equipment. Kent County implemented this program due to the many concerns with acquiring safety gear for small businesses.

Realgy’s sales agents are approved and recognized as practicing safe business following a regimen of safety checks each morning. MI Sales Director Frank Blazek says employees are “constantly reminding each other to go through the checklist to ensure they have their gear along with all PPEs”.

Kent County provided Realgy’s Michigan staff with the proper equipment to safely continue working. Being gifted with gloves, masks, hand sanitizer, and thermometers has made employees feel they can continue providing the best possible service without risking anyone’s health. Community response along with Realgy team members provided great feedback for diligently pursuing cautionary steps. Residents have mentioned they are “happy to see representatives wearing masks and taking the virus seriously”. Some even said if they hadn’t seen representatives wearing masks properly, they wouldn’t have opened the door or been willing to discuss services.

Blazek’s philosophy involves leading by example and focusing on teamwork. He keeps in mind Zig Ziglar’s quote “You will get all you want in life, if you help enough other people get what they want”. The transition hasn’t been as difficult for his employees due to “They’ve always maintained the Realgy code of conduct and best sales practices. Ensuring customers are treated respectfully and prompting them with information up front is part of the procedure to ensure protection for both the agents and residents. We are happy to have gotten positive feedback and everyone seems thankful we’ve put their wellbeing first”, says Blazek.

Realgy has taken various steps throughout the last several months to continue business in each state during the pandemic. “We are proud of Frank and the Grand Rapids team for continuing to provide great service throughout Michigan” says Michael Vrtis, President of Realgy Energy Services. Recognition goes to all involved in taking the lead during this difficult time worldwide. The healthcare workers, first responders, and all essential employees working each day. Realgy upholds best practices to ensure safety comes first.

How wind turbines are changing

Taller than a 10-story building, able to be built on site, and can power 14,000 homes!

These are the newest machines in harnessing wind energy.

GE’s turbines reached a record last year at 12 MW and roughly 10 stories tall.

The latest is 14 MW and a bit taller. Wind speed increases about 10 MPH every 100 feet up from the ground.

Along with improvements in efficiency comes the next phase of 3D-printed concrete bases. Check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_bpOLSWtE1U . This is so cool (engineering geek here).

A major limitation has always been transporting bases to site. This technique will allow for wider and taller bases with greater generation.

Peoples Gas blows away record with first-quarter profit growth

What happens when a public utility gets approval from politicians to spend money? They do it, a lot of it. The result is record profits for public utilities.

Peoples Gas’ net income increased over 20% to $81.3 million. This was at a time when gas deliveries were down. They moved less gas to consumers.

So, how do you make more money and move less gas?

Through surcharges. Politicians approved costs that DO NOT have to be reviewed and approved by the Illinois Utility Regulatory Commission. These surcharges were approved in 2013 as a way to expedite repairs. However, Peoples has utilized this law to increase charges while maximizing revenue. Peoples’ parent company WEC Energy boosted its dividend payment by 7% this year.

Illinois legislators should review this law and amend it so rate payers do NOT continue to enrich corporations, which in-turn enriches politicians.

Insight into Peoples’ massive gas project can be reviewed: https://realgyenergyservices.com/state-orders-new-probe-of-massive-peoples-gas-project/

Oil Companies Are Collapsing, but Wind and Solar Energy Keep Growing

Despite delays and layoffs triggered by the coronavirus, the renewable energy sector is doing well. Wind and solar usage has increased and is forecasted to continue growing. 2020 is on track to breaking even more records within this sector. Projections at this rate show that 20% of all US electricity by 2030 will be solar generated; driving billions into the US economy while offsetting 35% of all electricity emissions.

Along with the utilization of other green energy sources, we will see lower bills and great environmental and health benefits. With constant changes, there will be adjustments in government policies and regulations. Hopefully we can ensure these will benefit all areas and people from various incomes and backgrounds.
