St. Louis-based Metro Electric Supply, a locally owned and family-operated wholesale residential, commercial, and industrial electrical distributor, received the Trade Ally of the Year Award for the second year, and the Most Outstanding Regional Electrical Distributor of the Year Award at the 2019 Ameren Missouri BizSavers Program Trade Ally Network Awards. This is the third year in a row that Metro Electric Supply has been recognized by Ameren Missouri.

“It is an honor to be recognized with these awards,” says Bill Frisella, President of Metro Lighting and Metro Electric Supply. “Our continued standard of service from our employees shows in this recognition and that dedication is evident by our loyal customers.”

Metro’s energy use reduction saw them take the Trade Ally Network Awards’ highest honor in 2019. As the Trade Ally of the Year, Metro was recognized as a top performer in the energy-efficiency industry. The honor goes to the trade ally that has reached the pinnacle of performance by achieving the greatest energy savings of any trade ally company in 2018. Metro’s progressive thinking, creative solutions, and integration of incentives into their business has generated impressive energy savings throughout the year.

In addition to being award the Trade Ally of the Year, Metro Electric Supply was also honored with the Regional Electrical Distributor Award. This award is presented to a trade ally that sells a variety of electrical products located in the Midwest. This trade ally completed projects with the greatest energy savings in their category during the 2018 program year.

The Ameren Missouri BizSavers Trade Ally Network Awards are held every spring to celebrate the performance of Trade Allies in the previous year. The 2019 awards were based on program performance between March 2018 and February 2019.
