SouthCoast Electric Power Group (SCEPG)
The Bristol County and New Bedford Area Chambers of Commerce have established a collaboration of the largest users of electricity in the New Bedford and Fall River area called the SouthCoast Electric Power Group (SCEPG). The aggregation formed in 2002 and was only the second aggregation in the state to competitively bid its generation costs in Massachusetts. The initial three-year contract that expired in December 2004 was a $60 Million dollar contract. Participants in this first SCEPG aggregation collectively saved approximately $10 Million over the life of the contract.
Both Chambers are pleased to report that the Southcoast Electric Power Group Steering Committee has selected SourceOne, Inc. of Boston as our new energy consultant. SourceOne was established in 1997 and has grown into a nationally recognized energy management and advisory services company, providing a strategic, customized approach to utilizing available energy resources, and generating new energy solutions. SourceOne has approximately 1100 MW of electric power and 30 Bcf of natural gas procurement in the marketplace.
SourceOne was selected after the committee conducted a vigorous selection process. Brant Davis, Vice President of Commodity Management at SourceOne will be our primary contact and will manage the team of energy professionals advising the group. He has strong experience having worked for Veolia Energy and Deloitte Consulting providing strategic and operational management consulting services to the electric utility and heavy asset manufacturing industries.
