ČEZ sells gas, power via Facebook

ČEZ Slovensko, one of newer sellers of natural gas and electricity that emerged after liberalisation of the Slovak energy market, is now offering to sell gas and electricity to Slovak consumers via Facebook, the online social network. The company hopes to capture about 500 new customers every day, the TASR newswire wrote in mid September.

ČEZ Slovensko, one of newer sellers of natural gas and electricity that emerged after liberalisation of the Slovak energy market, is now offering to sell gas and electricity to Slovak consumers via Facebook, the online social network. The company hopes to capture about 500 new customers every day, the TASR newswire wrote in mid September.

“We know that among our potential customers are fans of the internet and social networks, people who prefer a fast and simple process without the need for personal contact,” said Igor Nagy from ČEZ Slovensko, as quoted by TASR.

He added that his company is the first supplier in the Slovak market that provides potential customers with the opportunity to change their gas or electricity supplier via Facebook, even though it continues to maintain a network of sales representatives as well as a customer service telephone line.

The company now has three channels to reach new customers: sales representatives, its website and the telephone service line, and it reports that it has established contracts with over 55,000 household customers in the past eight months.

ČEZ Slovensko, an arm of a Czech energy company, began supplying natural gas and electricity in Slovakia in July.

The list of alternative companies supplying gas as well as power also includes Vaša Energia, Energie2, Geon, Elgas, Magna E.A., and Lumius Slovakia, the Sme daily reported in late September.
