HOUSTON, Sept. 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — In a report published September 7th by Market Strategies International, Just Energy and Amigo Energy were identified to be among the top ten Most Trusted Brands in a pool of 52 Texas Retail Electric Providers (REPs) rated by customers. The most trusted brands are considered companies that customers have confidence in to do the right thing on their behalf. Amigo Energy also ranked in the top ten in last year’s report.

The findings are from the Cogent Reports™ 2017 Texas REP Brand Trust study provided by Market Strategies International. The research surveys electric consumers and benchmarks providers based upon a Brand Trust index score that is derived from measuring nine unique factors that impact consumers’ emotional attachment and the management performance of each provider.

“As a Trusted Advisor, it is important to us that every single one of our customers have full faith and confidence in us as their energy partner, especially now as we work to help our communities recover from the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey,” says Deb Merril, Just Energy’s co-Chief Executive Officer. “These results underscore that we have in place the right team and approach to meet customer needs and expectations as a company that puts them first. We are tremendously grateful to have their trust.”

“We strive daily to gain and maintain the trust of our customers by listening to what’s important to them,” says Jay Lewis, Just Energy’s co-Chief Executive Officer. “Everything we do, we do with the voice of the customer in mind and building relationships that they can count on.”
