Chamber Members Have Opportunity to reduce energy costs

PORTSMOUTH — Usource, a provider of energy management, monitoring, and procurement services is offering Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce members the opportunity to lower their energy supply costs through its Business and Industry Association (BIA) Energy Buying Group powered by Usource.
