ENGIE to Power Onondaga-Cortland-Madison BOCES, School Districts and Municipalities in NYSMEC Energy Consortium
HOUSTON, MAY 16, 2018 – ENGIE Resources announced today that the Onondaga-Cortland-Madison Board of Cooperative Educational Services (OCM BOCES), acting as administrative participant for the New York School and Municipality Energy Consortium (NYSMEC), awarded the company a three-year agreement to supply electricity to 170 school districts and municipalities throughout upstate New York.
The news illustrates the company’s broad background in retail electricity supply for the education sector. With the addition of OCM BOCES, ENGIE now serves more than 5,200 school sites in thirteen states including K-12, colleges, and universities.
Jay Bell, Vice President of Sales for ENGIE Resources, said ENGIE takes great pride in working with schools. “Earning OCM BOCES’s business demonstrates our commitment to this region and to an important customer base. It’s more than just an energy contract,” said Bell. “Many schools face rising community expectations and challenges, but are budget constrained at the same time. That makes them very astute at procurement and helps keep us focused on offering the best possible solution.”
