On Tuesday, the Aztec City Commission extended its wholesale power supply agreement with Guzman Energy for ten years. This contract extension also lowers the City’s wholesale rates for the ten-year period.
The City signed the original agreement with Guzman Energy in 2015. Under that agreement, Guzman built a one-megawatt solar array in west Aztec that serves the City exclusively.
“Our partnership with Guzman Energy benefits our citizens and gives our community members access to clean energy produced right here at home,” said Ken George, Director of the City of Aztec Electric Utility. “We are excited to extend this relationship and explore new opportunities for economic development that come along with lower power prices.”
“This extension demonstrates the value of Guzman Energy’s commitment to delivering customized power solutions that meet the individual needs of our customers,” said Jeff Heit, Managing Director at Guzman Energy. “We appreciate our collaboration with the City and look forward to continuing to serve this community.”
