Frontier Communications Begins Offering Consumers 100% Green Energy Supply

STAMFORD, Conn. --(Business Wire)--

Frontier Communications Corporation (NASDAQ: FTR), the largest provider of communications services focused on rural America, today announced the availability of a cost-effective, clean energy supply through FTR Energy Services. Customers will receive the same electricity and the same service on the same bill from their trusted local provider, but FTR Energy Services will provide green energy at affordable rates and 5 percent cash back on energy supply.

"Clean, renewable and affordable energy is something all customers want. This opportunity offers consumers choice, affordable plans and the ability to help the environment by knowing their energy supply is 100 percent green," said Ann Burr, President, New Product Trials and Integration for Frontier.

Participating utilities by state (E= electric; G=gas) are:



a.  

New York

i.

Central Hudson (E&G)

ii. National Grid (E&G)
iii. NYSEG (E&G)
iv. Orange (News - Alert) & Rockland (E&G)
v. Rochester Gas & Electric (E)

Any consumer - not just Frontier customers -- may sign up for either fixed or variable rate energy plans. Since energy is a commodity with supply rates that fluctuate depending on weather and market conditions, it is important customers select a plan that suits them. They can make their choice using either an easy online tool or by speaking to a trained FTR Energy Services customer representative who will help them through the process.

"FTR Energy Services builds on Frontier Communications' strong local relationships with customers. Communities, customers, Frontier employees and shareholders will benefit from this service. It is a great addition to our robust home and small business offerings," said Burr. The switch to Frontier Energy Services from a customer's current energy supplier is simple and easy. All customer bills will still come from their current local energy utility.

FTR Energy Services is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Crius Energy, a pioneer in telecom and energy relationships and the first to recognize the consumer advantages achievable through broadband and energy company partnerships.
