In an exclusive interview with a local NY blog, IDT Energy CEO Geoff Rochwarger shared tips for energy conservation and information about his personal knowledge about the energy industry. IDT Energy supplies both natural gas and electricity to houses and business in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Illinois. As a native New Yorker and someone “in the know” in the energy world, Mr. Rochwarger is able to offer great advice to his fellow New Yorkers.

When asked about projects that IDT Energy is involved in, Mr. Rochwarger explained that they have a number of exciting things happening. As he said, “Energy conservation and protecting our environment is extremely important to all of us. That’s why IDT Energy recently introduced a Green electric supply option that is 100% generated from renewable resources like running water, wind, solar and biomass, and is matched with renewable energy certificates. IDT Energy Green Electric is available in New York and all of the states we serve. In addition, as part of our commitment to contribute to a cleaner environment, I announced our partnership with Clean Vehicle Solutions, LLC in an effort to advance development of Natural Gas Vehicles (NGVs) and the use of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) in place of traditional liquid fossil fuels in commercial fleet vehicles. It’s cheaper and a much cleaner alternative.”

The IDT Energy CEO explained that IDT Energy was recently recognized as an innovator in the energy sector. They were invited to join the Retail Energy Supply Association, an exclusive organization that works with stakeholders to promote the competitive retail energy market.

IDT Energy also has many philanthropic efforts. As Mr. Rochwarger explained, “Giving back to the communities we serve is a priority. As you know, Hurricane Sandy left her mark on the northeast last year. Many communities suffered terribly as a result of the storm. To support the recovery effort, IDT Energy contributed to the American Red Cross.”
