Electric and Gas Procurement

Stone River Group (SRG) - New!

Electric and Gas procurement experts, SRG is independent of any energy producers, sellers or transmitters. They do not make or sell power-they make it more affordable for CBAI members. To ensure CBAI members receive the best possible price, SRG solicits qualified proposals from a number of gas and electricity service providers. Additionally, SRG consultants will aggregate members from the same region of the state and use their combined purchasing power to negotiate even lower rates.

To learn more about how SRG can help reduce your bank’s energy costs, contact Don Frontone via email at, or via phone at 217/737-5811.




About Community BancService Corporation, Inc.

A subsidiary of Community Bankers Association of Illinois (CBAI), CBSC aggregates the “clout” of CBAI member banks to negotiate lower costs and provide improved access to essential bank products and services. CBSC recommends products and services that assist banks with income-production, expense reduction, consulting, marketing, compliance, equipment, insurance, lending, A/L management and payments. Before the CBSC board of directors awards any program an exclusive partnership, it is subjected to a rigorous due diligence review that includes extensive testing by members, occasionally by independent experts, and negotiation of special member-only benefits. This process typically takes up to six months.

Today, CBAI members use an average of more than five CBSC preferred providers. Last year, members collectively saved nearly $ 1.5 million in purchasing discounts from CBSC-recommended firms. Contact CBSC today and share in the savings.
