US Veteran Energy LLC Earns Better Business Bureau Accreditation
Becoming an Accredited Business with the Better Business Bureau is an honor not accorded to all businesses; because not all busi-
nesses meet eligibility standards. US Veteran Energy LLC, who provides live on-line energy rate comparison shopping for busi-
nesses is pleased to announce today that it has met all BBB standards and is now an Accredited Business. "Accreditation in the BBB
is by invitation only" says Steve J. Bernas, President & CEO of the Better Business Bureau serving Chicago and Northern Illinois.
"And only those businesses that meet our high standards, and pass the review process are approved by our Board of Directors."
US Veteran Energy LLC, as with all businesses that are accredited by the BBB, is committed to the BBB Code of Business Practices.
The Code is a comprehensive set of policies, procedures and best practices on how businesses treat consumers. These standards
call for building trust, embodying integrity, advertising honestly and being truthful. Bernas adds "To maintain their Accreditation a
business must be transparent, honor their promises, be responsive to their customers, and safeguard their privacy. "We are proud
to be a BBB Accredited Business," said John Patrick Miner, President of US Veteran Energy LLC. "In today's world and uncertain
economy, it is imperative that our customers know how seriously we take our commitment to excellence and good customer ser-
vice. Our service and customer satisfaction is at its best. Our achieving BBB Accreditation exemplifies that goal." “US Veteran En-
ergy LLC, offers our customers the Energy Market Exchange [EMEX] which enables business to connect to international, national
and local energy suppliers through its interactive, online exchange platform. Suppliers view all current rates in the customer’s Ex-
change account and outbid each other to win the business. The retail customer watches the bidding happen in real-time within
their Exchange account as the best rate is extracted through open-market competition. We can price your business in 2 minutes
or less. We provide this state of the art and peerless outstanding product, along with unsurpassed customer service,” said John
Patrick Miner.
