Rockingham Planning Commission is forming an electricity
supply aggregation for municipal, school, and county facilities in our
region. The goal of the Electricity Supply Aggregation is to purchase
electricity as a group from a competitive supplier at a lower rate than each
member could receive on its own. By purchasing as an aggregation,
municipalities and school districts can offer electricity suppliers a larger
demand than if they each tried to purchase electricity individually. The
larger demand, in turn, allows suppliers to offer a better rate to the
aggregation than it could to individual members. The aggregation also
makes it possible for members to share the costs of documenting load data,
organizing a RPF process, selecting a supplier, conducting negotiations, and
managing energy contracts.
The first step is to gauge the level of interest among our member municipalities. While we do not need a firm commitment at this point, if you or your municipality are interested in participating please respond to Tim Roache, RPC Executive Director (email@example.com) to to the following questions by Friday, March 8.
Who is the default electricity supplier for your municipal/school buildings? (ex. Eversource, Unitil, NH Electric Coop)
Are any of your municipal/school electricity accounts currently with a competitive supplier?
If yes, when does your current contract end?
Do you have a current list of the electricity account numbers servicing your municipal/school buildings?
Do you currently track electricity usage for your municipal/school buildings?
Do you have any renewable energy projects planned for the next 2 years that would significantly reduce the amount of electricity you purchase from the grid?
We will hold our first informational meeting on Monday, March 18 at 10:00 AMat the Rockingham Planning Commission office, 156 Water Street, Exeter, NH (directions). We hope you can join us.
