While we daydream about our fantastic Thanksgiving dinners, and lament how fast turkey day has come and gone, it’s time to change gears because another holiday is on its way!
Summer has ended and we’re officially in the cool weather of fall, preparing for winter weather. The colder months often bring higher energy bills for business owners. For many, heating your building is one of your largest expenses. According to U.S. Energy Information Administration data, commercial businesses use about 28% of the total energy consumption in the U.S.
Today, November 11th, we observe a historic day with deep significance, Veterans Day. The U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs’, Office of Public and Intergovernmental Affairs, explains the meaning of this day as “…A celebration to honor America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.” We are proud to honor all our veterans and thankful for our internal Veteran Employee Team (VET) that works hard all year long to support the communities where we live and work. UGI Energy Services is proud to honor the bravery and patriotism of our veteran community. We thank them for their dedication and service to our country. As a company, we strive to honor and support our veteran community in a variety of ways. We are proud to share the activities that our VET team has engaged in over the past year.

It’s official, July has arrived! This means summer is in full swing and there are many opportunities for entertaining. We love a nice sunny day, burgers on the grill, and a dip in the pool (or sprinkler!). Whether you are hosting a small cookout or a big summer bash, we’re here to help you save energy all while being a relaxed host. Entertaining shouldn’t be stressful and you don’t need the thought of lingering high energy costs to ruin your party. This July Fourth weekend, we hope that you enjoy family, friends, and energy savings. It’s our wish that you see fireworks, just not when opening your energy bill this month. So sit back, grab a cold beverage, and let us give you tips to make effortless entertaining a reality.
Picture this – It is a blazing hot summer day in the middle of July. You are working from home and desperately trying to stay cool. In the back of your mind you see dollar signs every time you lower the thermostat. As sweat drips down your face on a Zoom call, the panic starts to ensue. What if we told you there was a way to lessen that impending doom. Well look no further, we are here to help! By following some simple suggestions to improve energy efficiency, you can reduce your energy costs while enjoying the comforts of a crisp, cool home or business all summer long.
When shopping for energy, when is just as important as where. Because of natural gas and electricity deregulation, you have the autonomy to choose when and where you shop for a supplier. This allows you to shop around and compare energy rates, helping you save money on your monthly energy bills.

The United Way of Berks County has recently announced its 2022 Campaign Co-Chairs – UGI Energy Services President, Joe Hartz and his wife, Dana Hartz!

At UGIES, we serve a variety of businesses of all different types and sizes and we value our small business customers. During the first week of May (May 1st – 7th), we honor Small Business Week. During this week, entrepreneurs and small business owners are recognized and celebrated for their accomplishments. According to the Small Business Association, a small business is a firm having fewer than 500 employees. A recent SBA statistic from 2021 shows that there are approximately 32 million small businesses in the US which account for 99.9 percent of all US businesses. With this information, it is clear that small businesses make up a very large part of the businesses we frequent and serve.
