Metro Electric Supply, a locally-owned and family operated wholesale residential, commercial & industrial electrical distributor, received the Trade Ally of the Year Award and the Most Outstanding Regional Electrical Distributor of the Year Award at the 2018 Ameren Missouri BizSavers Program Trade Ally Network Awards. This is the second year in a row that Metro Electric Supply has been recognized by Ameren Missouri.

“To be nominated for these prestigious awards is an honor,” says Bill Frisella, president of Metro Lighting and Metro Electric Supply. “We cannot thank our customers enough for working with us and all of our employees who work vigorously to serve our customers with the highest standard of service and savings.”

Metro’s 11.2 million kilowatt-hour energy use reduction saw them take the Trade Ally Network Awards’ highest honor in 2018. As the Trade Ally of the Year, Metro was recognized as a top performer in the energy efficiency industry. The distinguished 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 2017. 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 awarded 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 and is located in the Midwest. This Trade Ally completed projects with the greatest energy savings in their category during the 2017 program year.
