The Patrick-Murray Administration has worked to save an estimated $10 million on state electricity costs over the next two years, the result of a successful procurement for 24 large state agencies, authorities and non-profit institutions.
The Massachusetts Turnpike Authority will achieve significant energy cost savings. The Massachusetts Highway Department and the Registry of Motor Vehicles also are realizing energy savings.
The Administration, working with Worcester-based World Energy Exchange and Science Applications International Corporation, conducted a reverse auction for electricity supply.
The highly competitive auctions attracted many of New England’s top energy suppliers and resulted in contracts that will power accounts for the state’s executive agencies, including the Department of Capital Asset Management, Department of Conservation and Recreation, State Police and Department of Corrections.
