Procure: Where Expertise & Technology Meet

In addition to the traditional energy procurement channels, Patriot Energy now has the ability to utilize Reverse Auction technology. Through this unique approach Patriot can manage its clients’ energy supply needs and create optimal savings opportunities in a whole new way.

Strategic & Intelligent Energy Procurement

Depending on the size and scope of your business need, the entire RFP process could take anywhere from one to six months, which is why, for many businesses and government entities, the rigorous RFP process is one of pure dread.

Luckily, the entire process became remarkably simpler with the invention of the reverse auction. Over the past few years, increasingly more businesses have begun utilizing the new technology to streamline the RFP process and save over 85% of employee time on average.
