Since 2019 Philadelphia has been a customer of WGL Energy’s diverse retail energy supplier offerings

Vienna, VA (January 8, 2024) -- WGL Energy Services (WGL Energy) announced today that it was recently awarded a new contract to continue serving as the supplier of the city of Philadelphia’s electricity. 

WGL Energy, a competitive retail energy company offering natural gas, electricity, and renewable energy products to customers for more than 25 years, is supplying electricity to over 1,100 city accounts. The company has served as the retail electricity supplier for Philadelphia since 2019.  

The scope of the contract includes electricity for all government buildings in Philadelphia, such as City Hall, the Philadelphia International Airport, the Philadelphia Water Department, administration offices, judicial and other facilities, all while providing flexibility as the city pursues renewable energy options, including a 70 megawatt (MW) solar project in Adams County.

WGL Energy was selected as the result of a competitive procurement process, led by the Energy Office of Sustainability of the City of Philadelphia, that evaluated the ability of suppliers to develop and implement an electricity purchasing program that will enable the city of Philadelphia to meet its budget, procurement, and sustainability goals. Energy procurement provider Enel X supported the selection process, acting as the city’s energy advisor.

“WGL Energy is excited to continue as the supplier of choice for the city of Philadelphia,” said Mike McGinn, Vice President of Sales, WGL Energy. “We are dedicated to supporting the goals of our highly valued customers, including sustainability, budget requirements, and cost accounting targets, when planning their energy future.”
