Smaller clients were not able to garner the same level of purchasing power, economies of scale, or pricing options that our larger clients could.
We assembled a managed pool consisting of more than 35 different clients, creating a load that was greater than the sum of its parts. Each client had its own contract, so there was no cross-subsidization among pool members. We now purchase wholesale blocks of power at times when the market dips, giving these clients the benefit of multiple purchasing points throughout the contract. We also reduce risk premiums and compress margins to provide the absolute lowest cost for these pool participants.
