Small and Medium Business Accelerator (SaMBA)
Small and medium businesses (SMBs) tend to have the same motivations for procuring clean energy as larger companies — clean energy can help attract talent, differentiate from competitors, and manage risk. But with fewer employees, tighter cash flows, less substantial annual electricity loads, and no- or low-credit ratings, SMBs can face significant barriers to entry into the clean energy market.
To speed decarbonization of our energy system, the community of customers leading the transition to clean energy needs to expand and diversify. The Small and Medium Business Accelerator (SaMBA) catalyzes a broader community of energy customers to scale the impact of clean energy procurement by:
- Sharing customer best practices and lessons learned to enhance the SMB clean energy customer journey.
- Providing free Energy Procurement Fundamentals training materials to SMBs (expected launch, Fall 2023).
- Convening stakeholders in discussion to promote and increase the availability of well-designed, customer-centric utility green tariff clean energy procurement solutions.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to be notified when training materials are available or to engage in discussions on utility clean energy solutions.
