Cooperative purchasing helps city reduce costs


Energy efficiency and procurement programme has helped a city in the US state of Wisconsin to reduce its gas costs by 20%.

The City of Green Bay has partnered with Tradition Energy to power 50 of its facilities using low-cost gas acquired from top natural gas suppliers in the state.

The programme was deployed as part of a cooperative purchasing contract in which Tradition Energy is the energy consulting and management supplier to the participating communities.

“We are proud to advise the City of Green Bay on its natural gas purchasing,” said Alan Kurzer, CEO, Tradition Energy. “… the City of Green Bay is expected to substantially reduce its natural gas costs and achieve budget stability in a volatile energy market.”
