"I think many communities across the state would benefit from utilizing the services of UMS. If your savings is $5 dollars or $50,000, it is worth it to our tax payers."
Al Leonard, Town Manager
City of Jonesboro
“I have used UMS in prior positions and considered it a “no-brainer” when I started as CEO of our water utility. UMS saves us money by leveraging energy industry knowledge that our own staff does not possess. I always say you don’t need to know every answer, just where to go to find every answer. UMS has the answer for cost savings.”
Jeffery Hudson, CEO
Onslow Water & Sewer Authority
"I believe the services being provided by UMS are extremely valuable and add a level of comfort to our organization knowing that our power accounts are being maintained. As a local Agency, it is imperative that we are good stewards of tax dollars and find the UMS service helpful with this."
Cameron Cole, Director of Operations
Liberty County Development Authority
"Our city has been studying and researching our power bills to find if we have competitive rates or if we are being over charged. When I received the call from UMS we were definitely interested. The time didn’t take long and it was nice to know that we are getting the best rate right now."
