Municipal Utility Alliance

The Pennsylvania Municipal League’s Board of Directors created the Municipal Utility Alliance (MUA) in 1997 to help local government entities navigate their way through the complexities of electric deregulation. Today, the primary objective of the MUA is to educate its members on the current state of the energy market, while evaluating potential savings opportunities and how best to realize them.  The MUA provides invaluable, objective assistance to members to create opportunities now rather than reacting to effects later.

Energy is typically one of the top five expenses for many municipal entities. To help manage these costs, The League Municipal Utility Alliance (MUA) offers an Electric Procurement program that has saved Pennsylvania local government entities millions of dollars. With the assistance of energy consultants Utility Solutions Inc., the MUA has successfully enabled local governments to take every opportunity to benefit from the energy markets through competitive pricing.

MUA Electricity Procurement Program

Municipalities faced large increases in the cost of electricity beginning in 2010 when the caps on electricity prices were removed.  To help reduce these costs, The League offers a comprehensive Electric Procurement Program through its Municipality Utility Alliance (MUA) to lower the impact of increased costs. Through a publicly advertised, competitive bid process designed to meet the specific needs of local government entities, the MUA – with the technical assistance of consultant Utility Solutions, Inc. – selected Constellation as the supplier for service beginning in 2010.

This is a good time to consider a proposal for your energy costs. Low energy prices provide an excellent opportunity to lock in pricing for future years, even if your current contract is in effect for the next 12 to 24 months. Through the Municipal Utility Alliance (MUA) program, contracts are available through 2020 with Constellation, and quotes are available to compare to your current pricing.
