Energy Services Contract Offers Savings in Deregulated Marketplace

The deregulated electricity market has brought competition to parts of Texas and has improved pricing for customers in deregulated areas. The Texas Council for Competitive Government used strategic sourcing procedures to identify and negotiate a contract that helps state agencies effectively buy energy in the deregulated market.

In 2012, the contract is expected to generate $3.95 million in cost savings, reducing Texas Department of Criminal Justice’s (TDCJ) deregulated electricity expenditures by 13.6 percent to $25.1 million. Read full case study.
