Texas Public Power Pool Selects Constellation To Supply Low-Cost Electricity To Members

Stocks in this article: EXC

Public Power Pool (P3) has selected Constellation to supply its members with 2.7 million megawatt- hours of low-cost electricity following a competitive bidding process. P3 is one of the largest electricity aggregators in Texas, purchasing power for approximately 69 local governments and public entities.

According to P3, the three-year agreement with Constellation, beginning in 2014, provides a commodity supply rate to its members that is 31 percent lower than the commodity component of their electricity costs under their current contract.*

“We are committed to finding, through rigorous competitive bidding, the best contract term and rate for electricity supply,” said Donald Lee, P3 executive director. “Constellation competed aggressively and won the business of our members.”

“As a longtime electricity supplier in Texas, Constellation is proud to support P3’s mission to its members,” said Lou Hutchinson, vice president of public sector and energy efficiency sales for Constellation. “P3 members can rely on Constellation’s expertise to meet their procurement goals as well as to develop and implement strategies to better manage their overall energy use through energy efficiency measures. Constellation can also help them to earn additional revenue through participation in load response programs.”

Constellation is a national leader in providing comprehensive energy solutions to federal, state and local agencies as well as private sector firms that range from small businesses to the Fortune 100. The company currently serves more than 380 federal government sites and 4,000 government customers in 47 states.
