East Coast Power & Gas Partners With New Jersey Devils & Prudential Center to Become Sponsor and Energy Supplier for the Hockey Team and Arena

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - October 18, 2016) - East Coast Power & Gas, a premier energy services company, or "ESCO," that provides electricity, natural gas and renewables sources of energy to both commercial and residential customers in New Jersey and New York, announced today that it has partnered with the New Jersey Devils and Prudential Center to become a sponsor and energy supplier for the three-time Stanley Cup Champion hockey team and world-renowned arena in Newark, N.J. The announcement comes on the heels of a large-scale partnership East Coast announced with the 2015 National League Champion New York Mets last summer for their strategic push for additional market share in the greater tri-state region.

Vincent Palmieri, Chief Operating Officer, said, "We are thrilled to be partnering with the Devils as a sponsor and bringing our affordable energy products and superior customer service to the great state of New Jersey. At East Coast, we take great pride in our competitive prices, innovative products and impeccable service. We are striving to become the tri-state area's 'go to' energy provider. When people think of 'energy,' we want them to think East Coast Power & Gas!"

Mr. Palmieri added, "Aligning ourselves with an organization and brand as well thought of and endeared by thousands of New Jersey hockey fans not only makes business sense but common sense. As a business serving New Jersey we salute the Devils and Prudential Center's efforts to focus on and promote New Jersey business and community with their 'One Jersey' campaign. We believe that a strong brand has a strong community behind it. We look forward to a long and successful relationship with the Devils, Prudential Center and the New Jersey hockey community. As an energy services company, we can offer unique products and services as well as fixed rates to offset big swings in energy bills that traditional utilities cannot offer. It's an exciting time for East Coast and we are privileged to be expanding into New Jersey and beyond."

"We are excited to welcome East Coast Power & Gas to the growing Devils and Prudential Center family and proud that they choose us to help expand their services to this incredible New Jersey market," said Adam Davis, Chief Revenue Officer of the New Jersey Devils and Prudential Center. "Our commitment to New Jersey starts with great partners, and we look forward to introducing East Coast, which is now powering our building, to the best fan base in sports and entertainment."

As an official partner of the Devils, East Coast Power & Gas will showcase various assets throughout Prudential Center, including ice level dasher boards, concourse and in-bowl LED signage, and exterior marquee LED signage. The agreement also includes radio advertising during Devils games, social media and web content, and hospitality access.
