The District Of Columbia Department of Energy & Environment announced a new opt-in electricity and natural gas supply aggregation for business customers called District Buying Power
Albireo Energy, formerly Taylor Consulting, was chosen under a 2019 Request for Proposal to administer the program. Albireo Energy also runs Boston Buying Power and Philly Buying Power
"By joining larger groups under District Buying Power, the DC business community will have access to a proven and effective way to get the best available pricing and contract terms, which typically are only available for large energy users. District Buying Power also will analyze customer data to provide energy tracking, budgeting, and reporting so that small businesses can enjoy the same services as large businesses, without requiring any investment. The data analysis will allow District Buying Power to recommend renewable energy, energy efficiency efforts, benchmarking compliance, and various other related services," D.C.'s office of the Mayor said
"I encourage the businesses inside and outside the District to join and start receiving these benefits immediately" said DOEE Director Tommy Wells. "Whether or not you are in a contract, you can sign up today, and enroll your accounts into the buying group for the next available bulk purchase. Signing up requires just a few minutes and a copy of your energy bill."
Any business account is eligible to participate -- whether the business is commercial, industrial, governmental or non-profit. While multifamily accounts are often eligible, the program does not support individual residential accounts.
