TEC combines our customers' $250 million purchasing power to leverage the best pricing
TEC leverages the $250 million buying power of 75 electric distribution and generation and transmission cooperatives throughout Texas. This combined buying power gives TEC a strong negotiating position with manufacturers to achieve the best value for our members and municipal customers across the state.
TEC plays a vital role in the buying power of electric co-ops. When negotiating pricing with manufacturers, individual electric cooperatives and many municipalities have historically been disadvantaged compared to large IOUs. Today, TEC's aggregated buying power positions us to negotiate for our customers with the same clout as much larger companies.
