Sprague Operating Resources LLC Announces Exclusive Energy Partnership with New York Hospitality and Tourism Association

PORTSMOUTH, N.H., Jan. 19, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Sprague Operating Resources LLC., a leading provider of energy solutions and material handling services across the Northeast, is thrilled to announce its designation as the Exclusive Energy Partner for New York’s Hospitality and Tourism sector for the year 2024. As the Exclusive Energy Partner, Sprague Energy will supply tailored energy solutions to meet the unique needs of New York’s hotels, restaurants, tourist attractions, and other hospitality services. 

“We’re honored to be chosen as the exclusive energy partner for the New York Tourism and Hospitality Association (NYSH&TA) and elevate our position within the member base,” said Mark Roberts, Director of Natural Gas. “Our expertise and insights will help the association members, both current and new, manage their energy needs and explore sustainable solutions, while getting more budget certainty and pricing flexibility.”

Since 1870 Sprague has helped businesses meet their energy and material handling needs to prosper in tomorrow’s markets. As an innovator in transitioning energy sources throughout history, Sprague will be able to provide a wide variety of sustainable and environmentally-friendly energy solutions. As a sponsor of NYSH&TA since 2010, this new, exclusive partnership builds on the successful history together of serving the NYSHTA membership base while broadening the scope of opportunities and resources available.

“One of the largest expenses for any hotel is energy, and over the past 15 years more and more energy consultants started popping up which makes it difficult for hoteliers to know who to trust. This year, the New York State Hospitality & Tourism Association decided to take the guesswork out of the process and exclusively partner, at the Preferred Program level, with Sprague,” said NYSH&TA President, Mark Dorr. “They have been saving our members money and setting up long-term energy strategies for several years and we wanted to take our partnership and endorsement to the next level.”
