October 18, 2018 – Houston – Choice! Energy Services (Choice!), a full-service energy procurement and utility management company, announced its awarded contract from the Choice Partners Purchasing Co-op. As a vendor in the national cooperative, which offers procurement and contract solutions for government entities such as school districts, private and charter schools, colleges and universities, municipalities, counties, other governmental agencies and nonprofits by connecting them with approved vendors, Choice! will be able to guide interested parties through LED lighting upgrade opportunities that may exist and assist with other electrical items by providing a pre-competed service offering.
“Choice! Energy Services is excited to join Choice Partners Purchasing Co-op as our goal is to use our expertise to provide k-12, colleges, universities, cities and other entities with LED solutions that lower operating costs while enhancing learning environments,” said Choice! Consultant Shawn Cox. “It is nice to be recognized by the cooperative as a pre-qualified vendor that is competitively priced. This allows us to assist more in the due diligence stage of the LED project, which results in a more efficient process. At the end of the day, we are able to offer added value to government entities without paying a premium.”
The Choice Partners Purchasing Co-op was created by the merger of three Harris County Department of Education procurement cooperatives – Choice Facility Partners, Gulf Coast Food Co-op and HCDE Purchasing Cooperative. It allows organizations in Texas and across the U.S. to participate at no charge by providing access to competitively bid and legally awarded contracts.
“Our spot with the co-op reconfirms the high level of service, value and cost savings our teams provide clients every day,” added Cox. “Additionally, having the capability to perform a detailed lighting audit, a lighting payback analysis, and offer turnkey pricing listing any available utility rebates allows us to expedite the process and present real numbers.”
Choice! will showcase its services during Choice Partners Purchasing Co-op’s annual Vendor Exhibit on October 26, 2018 at The Norris Conference Center at CityCentre in Houston. The event will include exhibits for governmental entities in the areas of technology, facilities, maintenance, supplies/products, and general services.
