Electric Buying Group Update

This week a new electric supply contract was executed on behalf of over 90 chamber businesses representing hundreds of accounts in the electric aggregation buying group.  The new contract is a three-year fixed supply rate of $0.07931/kwhr which is even lower than most member’s current/expiring rate of $0.0825/kwhr.  The contract was awarded to Integrys Energy Services after several rounds of competitive bidding and will run from each member’s April meter read date through April of 2016.  This new contract rate is also between 9% and 12% lower than Delmarva Power’s tariff supply rates.  Each member included in the contract will receive additional information from the Chamber including their projected savings and other contract details over the next several weeks.

Attention Members Served by Liberty Power
Most of our members in the existing buying group are currently served by Liberty Power through April.  Liberty Power competed to win the contract renewal but was not successful.  We have reports from at least 6 members that have been contacted directly by Liberty Power to have them renew their contract directly with Liberty Power at a higher rate than the new group rate with Integrys.  Ed Jackson executed the new contract with Integrys through each member's Power of Attorney form.  Please do not renew your contract directly with Liberty Power or you will lose your new contract rate with Integrys.  Feel free to contact Ed directly if you have any questions about this at 302-218-8920 or
