Texas charter schools will save money by jointly purchasing electricity with other charters
Austin, Texas – For the first time in Texas history, charter schools will be able to reduce utility costs by pooling together to purchase electricity in their local areas through the Texas Charter Schools Association Electricity Pool Program. After soliciting proposals and engaging a rigorous selection process, TCSA designated five retail energy providers for its program – Constellation Energy, Gexa Energy, MidAmerican Energy, Reliant Energy, and TriEagle Energy.
Denise Pierce, TCSA Vice President of Member Services, said, “By leveraging its collective purchasing power, charter schools have the ability to cap their electricity rates for up to five years. Now is the best time to purchase electricity, because current market conditions are ideal to lock in low rates. We are pleased to offer this program to our schools because every dollar saved on the lights is more money for high quality instruction for charter school students.”
The TCSA Electricity Pool provides member schools with extremely competitive pricing, protection against future changes in law, no hidden fees, the ability to add school buildings to their contract as the school grows, a variety of pricing plans, and fixed ancillary fees.
