Naturgy and ATA Madrid sign agreement to foster energy efficiency among self-employed professionals in Madrid
- Through this agreement, ATA Madrid members will be able to benefit from a customised offer of energy, services and energy solutions.
- In that regard, a freephone number has been set up to offer energy solutions to self-employed workers in Madrid: 900 101 816.
Naturgy and the Association of Self-employed Workers (ATA) of Madrid have signed an agreement to provide members of this federation with a wide offer of energy, services and energy solutions aimed at improving the energy efficiency of self-employed workers.
Under this agreement, Naturgy will advise self-employed workers in the Community of Madrid on energy supply, comfort, energy efficiency, mobility and lighting, giving members special offers with discounts on gas, electricity and services, for their businesses and homes.
Furthermore, it will provide advice on energy solutions to improve efficiency with state-of-the art technology, facilitating the purchase of gas-run vehicles through subsidised rates and fuel discounts.
The agreement has been signed by Antonio Guzmán and Esther Nava, senior managers of Naturgy in Madrid, and Elena Melgar, chair of ATA Madrid.
Antonio Guzmán said that “this agreement is a sign of Naturgy’s commitment to offering its products under the best conditions to a group as important as the self-employed”. For her part, Esther Nava recalled “the importance for the energy company to always be supported by the latest technology and the best services, so it can help optimise the energy bills of its businesses and vehicles”.
In turn, Elena Melgar said that “one of our challenges is to encourage an environmentally friendly economy and sustainable employment in our region. To make the most of an unexploited market niche, this entails cutting fixed costs of consumables and stimulating companies’ potential to become actors in change. As the leading association of the self-employed, we know that the fixed costs of almost 400,000 self-employed workers in Madrid for gas, electricity and fuel are the first hurdle to overcome each month. Therefore, an agreement such as this gives us the opportunity to lower concerns and increase competitiveness among self-employed workers”.
