CGP Solutions has helped government agencies procure more than 1000 energy contracts and amendments since 2005, representing more than 3000 ESI-ID locations. CGP Solutions supports government agency energy buyers through the HGAC Energy aggregation group, one of the most respected government agency energy aggregation groups in Texas. As a State of Texas recognized interlocal buying program, HGAC Energy procures power through a competitive bid process to make sure all quotes are competitive and based upon current available pricing opportunities.
Our government agency customer list includes: Cities Counties Schools Colleges Municipal Utility Districts Special Authorities
Why should Political Subdivisions participate in an aggregation group? Time and Resources.
Here are some the challenges a buyer should consider:
1. Retail Electric Providers have buying power over individual buyers. 2. Dynamic market pressures force buyers make it difficult for a buyer to constantly monitor all facets of the market. 3. Development of a quality buying process that reflects proper account preparation and strategy consideration. 4. Individual buyers usually do not possess the power to obtain concessions from a REP in the price or contract terms. 5. Responsibility for contracting and all future add and delete amendments. 6. Responsibility to address and pursue all service and quality control issues. 7. Risk damages could potentially be very costly if buyer makes poor decisions.
All of the issues above require expertise. Time and financial resource commitments can be minimized through participation in an aggregation group.
Most of our HGAC members have been members since 2001.
New Government Agency Requirements: Senate Bill 7 ushered in lower prices and major billing and service issues in 2002. By 2007, the regulated rates and low prices were a thing of the past, leading the Texas Legislature to require government agencies to conform to House Bill 3693, a plan to reduce energy usage by 5% per year for the next 6 years. We provide direction and guidance to help our clients meet these requirements.
We have the expertise to help you successfully meet your energy management needs.
