Pennsylvania Intermediate Unit Consortium
In 1997, several Intermediate Units (IU’s) in Pennsylvania formed a buying consortium for the purpose of negotiating and purchasing electricity. With the rate caps for electricity expiring across all utilities in Pennsylvania, a group of nine IU’s has focused heavily on helping school districts manage their electricity costs. OnDemand Energy, as an independent consultant, has helped over 100 school districts switch to third-party suppliers for electricity. In the first full year of expired rate caps (2011), OnDemand has helped school districts collectively save over $3 million on their electricity spend. The Intermediate Units participating in the electricity consortium include Appalachia IU 8, ARIN IU 28, Beaver Valley IU 27, Midwestern IU 4, Northwest Tri-County IU 5, Riverview IU 6, Seneca Highlands IU 9, and Westmoreland IU 7.
