When purchasing energy for schools, as well as for governmental and political entities, churches and other organizations, research is needed to ensure that the selected provider best matches the needs of the user. It is often difficult for someone who only purchases energy for schools once every three or five years to get the bottom line when purchasing energy for schools and other organizations, because one needs to know complex things like kWh, kW, load factor, ratchet demand and more. The Choice Facility Partners cooperative purchasing awarded energy contract partners at Choice Energy Partners know how these factors interact and can help members understand these concepts and use them to reduce their overall energy charges.
For the best deal on energy for schools, use the Choice Facility Partners energy brokers Texas Energy Aggregation and Tradition Energy. They do not sell energy: rather, they are unbiased energy experts who keep energy companies honest, report to the public the reputation and quality each company has to offer, help consumers minimize their consumption of energy, keep a watchful eye on the market daily to find the best rate to date, and to help negotiate contracts that will be of benefit to members both at the present time and in the future.
When purchasing energy for schools or other governmental entities, the law requires that governmental entities use a bidding process, which can be done through cooperative purchasing with an accountable third party political subdivision. Using cooperative purchasing through Choice Facility Partners to obtain a contract for energy for schools allows members to get a much fairer price for electricity. Essentially, the competitive bid process happens twice: first the energy aggregators bid for the contract with the cooperative purchasing agency. Then the aggregators solicit bids for energy for schools and other organizations to find the best value pricing, and then negotiate and lock in a rate at the best possible moment.
Flaws overcome with cooperative purchasing
When the RFP process is used in a non-cooperative purchasing environment, bids for energy for schools and other organizations are often padded to correct for possible increases in energy prices from the time the proposal is submitted to the time it is opened and awarded. The RFP process works for items that have a price that is not variable, e.g. copy paper pricing doesn’t change 5% in a day or 15% in a week. But energy prices are volatile and time equals risk to an energy company, so the longer they have to hold a quote as executable, the more padding may be needed in the bid.
Another flaw is that some aggregators use only one energy company – the energy for schools contract was competitively bid at some time in the past – but today, the bid is no longer a good value.
Finding the best deal on energy for schools does not have to be a difficult, complex process. Providing energy for schools, universities, cities, and counties can be done in one simple, and legal, step.
