BERLIN, Conn., May 20, 2002 — Select Energy, the energy marketing and services arm of Northeast Utilities, announced recently it has been chosen by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) to provide over 10 megawatts of electricity per year for various facilities throughout the state of New York.
Among the sites being served are the U.S. Bureau of Prisons, U.S. Department of Justice, and GSA facilities. The three- year contract runs through May 2005. Financial terms were not disclosed.
“The GSA has an excellent energy procurement staff with the expertise to maximize all of the many opportunities the deregulated electricity marketplace has to offer. We are very excited about continuing our relationship with the GSA and creating long-term energy value for their facilities,” said Annette Durnack, vice president of Select Energy’s New York operations. According to Durnack, Select Energy won the GSA contract through an innovative, Web-based reverse auction process developed by World Energy Solutions Inc. of Worcester, Mass.
The U.S. General Services Administration is an independent agency of the executive branch with 14,000 workers and an annual budget of $64 billion. The Federal Property and Administrative Services Act established the agency in 1949.
Select Energy’s New York operations are based in Syracuse.
