On Tuesday, August 30, 2011, the Montgomery County Commissioners approved a “Generation Supply Agreement” with DPL Energy Resources to provide electricity generation supply to Montgomery County facilities.
This agreement is expected to save Montgomery County over $1 million per year.
“As we deal with significant state and federal budget cuts, Montgomery County is looking at every aspect of how we do business in order to save taxpayer dollars,” said Montgomery County Commission President Debbie Lieberman. “We are happy to make this award to DPL Energy Resources and appreciate their longstanding commitment to Montgomery County.”
Based on the County’s 10-year track record of working with the County Commissioners Association of Ohio (CCAO) Natural Gas Purchasing, the County engaged CCAO and its consultant, Palmer Energy, to issue a competitive “Request for Proposal” to secure best pricing for electricity generation. Six of the 13 potential suppliers responded to that RFP. Following a thorough review, DPL Energy Resources was the recommended energy supplier with the best pricing for the 21-month agreement.
The agreement includes over 170 accounts in County buildings (including Children Services, Parks, two County Courts, the Animal Resource Center, and Stillwater Center), Sheriff Facilities, Water & Wastewater facilities County Engineer Facilities, Soil & Water, and the Fairgrounds.
The Electricity Generation Supply Agreement will begin on September 1, 2011 and continue through May, 2013.
