Case Studies

City of Manchester

Client Since: 2007

Client Type: Municipal

Contract Type: Procurement

Project: CES helps the City manage an energy portfolio that consists of

  • Electricity
  • Natural Gas
  • #2 oil
  • ULSD
  • #4 oil


  • Sopisticated power purchasing strategy development
  • Market monitoring
  • Management of supplier relations
  • CES performed a cost/benefit analysis of the City's 102 natural gas accounts. CES determined that by only contracting accounts with consuption higher than 1,000 Dth per year, the City would save more than $100,000 per year. 

Relevance: Our work on behalf of the City of Manchester demonstrates our ability to work with a municipal client on a full range of energy related issues. CES worked with municipal-specific accounts such as street lights, water works, the transit authority and the Manchester school systems. The average annual consumption across all accounts was approximately 37,000,000 kWh per year and 133,000 Dth per year. Under CES's management, Manchester has seen energy savings in excess of $150,000 per year.
