Join the Chamber Energy Purchasing Cooperative
The Northwest Chamber of Commerce has partnered with energy management experts, CQI Associates, to administer and manage the Chamber Energy Purchasing Cooperative since 2004. The increased purchasing power of the Chamber Purchasing Cooperative has allowed members to receive lower rates than they could typically attain on their own.
The Clean Energy Jobs-Renewable Portfolio Standard Bill implemented by the Maryland Legislature on May 23, 2019 could result in increased electricity rates by 14% to 18%. The Bill contains an option to avoid this increase if a contract is signed prior to October 1, 2019. Therefore, seeking a long-term contract extension (or a new contract) now could help you avoid a potential cost increase.
If your current rate is higher than $0.072 per kWh or $0.50 per therm, you may want to consider joining the cooperative and participating in this next round of competitive supplier pricing. The current campaign begins June 24, 2019 for both new participants and renewal members who have contract renewal dates through to June 2021.
TO ENROLL IN THE ENERGY COOPERATIVE:
1. Complete and sign the attached Letter of Authorization
2. Provide one copy of your most recent Utility bill(s), all pages, for all electricity and or natural gas accounts you are enrolling
3. Scan and email copies of the above documents to Jennie Anderson at
firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to 410-630-5911
4. Send the original documents to the Chamber
5. APPLICATION DEADLINE IS JULY 29, 2019
If you have any questions or require additional details, please contact Joe Tabeling with CQI Associates at email@example.com or 443-472-3870.
Community News & Events
Glyndon Train Station Heritage Grant was Awarded
In March, the office of Councilman Izzy Patoka submitted a letter of support to Preservation Maryland to help the Glyndon Train Station LLC obtain a grant to complete various maintenance projects on the Glyndon Train Station.
He is happy to announce that the Glyndon Train Station LLC was awarded a $7,800 Heritage Grant.
In addition to several smaller grants that Glyndon Train Station LLC has received, the Heritage Grant will be used for work to maintain the integrity of the historic train station.
School Infrastructure Projects:
District 2 Update from Councilman Patoka
I am pleased to share that the Baltimore County Traffic Engineering and Transportation Planning Bureau is scheduled to complete three school safety projects in July. One of these projects include speed bumps on High Falcon Road in Reisterstown.
In the 2nd District and beyond, we face critical school infrastructure challenges. Summit Park Elementary School has 10 trailers. Reisterstown Elementary School has eight trailers. Bedford Elementary School does not have air conditioning.
In addition, Franklin Elementary School & Reisterstown Elementary School had at least one water fixture test positive for lead in the last school year.
These conditions are unacceptable and not conducive to a 21st century learning environment. We must do more to support our children and educators, which is why I’ve continued to advocate and lobby for school construction funding in the 2nd District.
I want to thank Speaker Adrienne Jones for recognizing this critical need and making school construction funding a top priority during next year’s legislative session. Together, with your continued help and support, we’ll provide our children and educators with the necessary tools and resources to thrive in and out of the classroom.
