Note: These prices can be compared directly to your current utility “Generation Services Rate.”

Your contract price will be no higher than the target price. However, if market prices are lower at the time of contract execution, you will receive lower-than-target pricing. This is our 41st purchasing group and almost all prior groups received contract prices lower than target…many substantially lower.

We’ve helped more than 700 CBIA member companies (totaling >700 million kWh annually) beat their utility generation price and stabilize their electricity costs through long-term contracts. Any member company can participate with a minimum of 10 kW demand per account.

Current market prices are currently at 10 year lows. If you want to stabilize your future electricity generation costs at historically low levels, now is a great time to act! Through our program you can lock in current market prices to December 2013, 2014, 2015, or 2016. It’s your choice. And, because of the success of our program, you benefit from the tremendous buying power of being part of an 85 megawatt, 700 company group!

Compare our prices to the utility Generation Service Charge (GSC) prices for 2012.
