Featured Members Spotlight: Orange & Rockland Utilities
Started in 2013, the Tri-State Chamber of Commerce made a commitment to visit with each of their members. The featured member this time is Orange & Rockland Utilities.
As an integrate part of the chamber for more than years, Orange & Rockland Utilities has done a lot for the community and has given back to organizations that work to improve the climate for business and for residents.
O&R is a long time supporter of the Chamber's annual "Arts Walk", "Tri-State Classic Race" and the "Spring Banquet." These annual events help strengthen communities and businesses in the tri-state area and O&R's commitment to non-profits is of vital importance to the ongoing efforts to improve the quality of life and enrich the experience for all.
Aileen Sullivan started as a contractor in 1996 and became a permanent employee in 1999. She is just one of the many fortunate employees that have been provided an opportunity to grow within O&R. Currently as the Public Affairs Manager, Sullivan is keenly aware of how much the organization does within the community. Living in this area for more than 20 years Sullivan cares about her community and through O&R has the opportunity to be actively engaged in the improvement and growth provided by this company.
Orange & Rockland's research and development departments are always looking to improve and promote alternative energy services. Covering such a large area, including the counties of Orange, Pike, Sullivan, Rockland, Bergen and Passaic, which include such rich natural resources, allows them to provide solar, gas and electric services for us as their customers.
The Green Team, energy efficient experts, provide O&R customers incentive and rebate opportunities along with education on how to make our planet a better place to live. Visit www.oru.com, to see what savings and opportunities might be available.
As demands change due to storms and weather changes, O&R has made changes to improve their service. They have been seen along the roads cutting trees away from the lines or digging to put their lines underground. This is all to improve the service they provide. They also continue to improve the communication to the local community to make sure that we are always informed of the status of any outages or any changes.
Behind the scenes, members of the O&R team serve on various boards and continue with "hands-on" involvement in organizations and causes in our communities.
