We empower clients with market insights and utility knowledge to confidently manage energy strategies.
Through a range of databases, we track our progress and benchmark performance to ensure that we constantly deliver value-driven client experiences.
Scioto Energy was founded in 2008 in Columbus as one of the first electric brokerage firms to enter the Ohio market.
A lot has changed in the industry since the company’s inception. Under the leadership of managing partners Greg Bechert and Susanne Buckley, Scioto Energy has remained focused on driving value through holistic energy solutions.
Today, the company is widely known as one of the leading energy brokerage and consulting firms in the Midwest. Its leaders have played an active role in promoting the value of deregulation throughout the country and have been integral in defining and driving a unified voice for brokers in Ohio.
Their work – combined with the broad-based experience of in-house energy experts at Scioto Energy – has led retail energy suppliers, energy law firms, hospitals, universities, manufacturers and other commercial and industrial organizations to seek the company’s consulting services.
