Constellation Energy wins power supply, renewable contracts in Northeast

The new contracts cover agencies in New York, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Pennsylvania

Baltimore, January 26, 2012 — Constellation Energy won three new General Services Administration electricity supply and renewable energy contracts in five states.

The contracts expand Constellation's federal supply to 2.7 million MWh of electricity per year, serve almost every region of the country eligible for competitive supply, and build upon existing contracts that include the U.S. Capitol, Federal Reserve and Smithsonian Institution.

The new contracts cover agencies in New York (including the United Nations building), Connecticut, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Pennsylvania.

Constellation announced last year it had signed a three-year contract with the GSA to supply 1.72 million MWh of electricity per year to federal sites that include the U.S. Capitol, Kennedy Center, Smithsonian Institution, GSA and the Federal Reserve, as well as the Departments of Justice, Labor, Interior, Transportation and Treasury. All GSA contracts are subject to federal competitive bid requirements.

That GSA contract followed the March 2011 announcement that Constellation signed an Energy Savings Agreement with the U.S. Department of State that will contribute to President Obama's executive order to reduce federal-wide greenhouse gas emissions.

The State Department and part of the White House campus expect to reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with domestic electricity consumption by about 30 percent to 35 percent by December 2012 and during the term of the ESA.

Constellation Energy is a federally approved provider of demand response services for both military and civilian government agencies, enabling federal sites to earn money by reducing consumption during times of peak energy demand.
