Energy consortium sign-up under way

The Columbia-based Restaurant Association of Maryland will hold another round of open enrollment this month for the Mid-Atlantic Aggregation Group Independent Consortium, an energy-aggregation consortium of retailers and others, of which the association is a member. The consortium's goal is to offer power to commercial participants at a fixed rate that is lower than that of the local utility.

The program offers long-term fixed pricing, for terms up to five years; a price-reduction clause should energy rates decrease; the right to assign the contract should a business be sold; no historical-bandwidth usage requirement (the price is fixed); and elimination of additional charges in high-demand summer months.
