 How We Got Started Biography of Valerie Wood

Valerie Wood, President and Owner of Energy Solutions, Inc., has more than 28 years of experience in the natural gas industry. Prior to forming Energy Solutions, Inc., Valerie worked in customer service and natural gas buying positions for three regulated utilities and two deregulated natural gas marketers. In 1996, Valerie sought a career change. Doing something quite out of the ordinary -- Valeria asked businesses (the customer) what they felt they were missing when it came to information about the natural gas industry. The unanimous response was "unbiased information," which is the foundation upon which Energy Solutions, Inc. was formed.

In the fall of 1996, Energy Solutions, Inc. found its niche by educating businesses on how they could save money by participating in the choices available to them through the deregulated natural gas market. Through a combination of publications and education seminars, Energy Solutions, Inc. taught businesses about the ins and outs of selecting a natural gas supplier and how to evaluate what choices were best for their company.

Between 1996 and 2000, the price of the natural gas commodity doubled. Energy Solutions, Inc., evolved also, as seminar topics were expanded to include how to evaluate the natural gas market for buying opportunities, how to establish a budget, and how to negotiate new elements of the marketplace, such as the cost of pipeline transportation, known more commonly as pipeline basis.

Before long, customers were faced with even greater challenges as prices became even more volatile while, at the same time, many organizations were reducing internal staff. As one individual stated, "I understand the market, and I know how to do it, but I no longer have the time to do it." As a result, in 2000, Energy Solutions, Inc., added one-on-one buying advisory services to its portfolio of services, all of which are designed to help the natural gas business user.

As the industry has evolved, so has our publication, The Advisor. Today, monthly editions are supplemented with weekly editions and special alerts to ensure readers are kept fully informed of pricing changes and buying opportunities.

Our seminars and workshops  address a variety of topics. Ranging in length from three-hours, for the more advanced buyer, to 1-1/2 days for those relatively new to the task of buying natural gas for their company, we work to address the issues that matter most to your company.

Overall, the foundation upon which Energy Solutions, Inc. was formed has not changed -- we continue to  provide unbiased information to businesses, assisting them with their natural gas buying decisions. Today, we continue to accomplish this goal through The Advisor, education seminars and workshops, and one-on-one buying advice/consulting.

Each and every customer is valued and the testimonials prove that when it comes to buying natural gas, we provide services that many find very valuable, straightforward and easy to understand.
