Gexa, a subsidiary of Nextra Era Energy, faced increasing competition and industry aggregation.

/ Challenge

Gexa Energy, a subsidiary of NextEra Energy Resources, headquartered in Houston, Texas, is a retail electricity provider that sells electricity service to residential and commercial customers in all deregulated markets in Texas. PACIFIC works with NextEra Energy Resources as well as Frontier Utilities, another subsidiary.

In today’s deregulated energy market, competition is stiff and ever-expanding. Faced with these industry realities, Gexa needed to not only maintain their presence in the eyes of their consumers but grow with the developing aggregation marketplace as well. PACIFIC saw this shifting landscape as an opportunity to scale their marketing investment while substantially reducing cost per acquisition. (CPA)
