The Delaware River and Bay Authority Chooses WGL Energy to Continue as Retail Electricity Supplier

5/22/2024

DRBA, also a WGL Energy REC purchase customer, will host its third annual World Environment Day Celebration event on May 29; WGL Energy will be participating again

May 22, 2024 (New Castle, DE and Vienna, VA) -- The Delaware River and Bay Authority (DRBA), which owns and operates essential transportation facilities in the U.S. Northeast Corridor, recently selected WGL Energy to continue as its retail electricity supplier. WGL Energy has served electricity to the DRBA since 2014.   

WGL Energy has been offering competitive natural gas and electricity for more than 25 years. The company also provides renewable options such as Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) and Carbon Offsets. In addition to being an electricity customer of WGL Energy, DRBA purchased RECs from WGL Energy in 2022 to underscore its commitment to environmental stewardship.  

Under the terms of the renewed agreement, WGL Energy will continue providing electricity to power DRBA’s core facilities and operations through 2025. Grid Energy Exchange served as advisors during the energy procurement process.  

“WGL Energy is proud of its long history with the DRBA and honored to continue serving them as a highly valued customer for electricity, supporting DBRA’s energy procurement and budget goals,” said Mike McGinn, Vice President of Sales, WGL Energy. “We are also excited to return to DRBA’s World Environment Day Celebration this year. WGL Energy commends DRBA’s commitment to the environment and sustainability – including its WGL Energy RECs purchase in 2022, and we look forward to joining together on May 29 and champion environmental responsibility.” 

During DRBA’s World Environment Day Celebration on May 29, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. (Veterans Memorial Park 163 Cherry Lane, New Castle, DE), WGL Energy will be on-hand to promote the benefits of RECs and Carbon Offsets to support a better environment. The company also encourages attendees to bring their utility bill so that a WGL Energy representative can explore alternative retail supplier pricing and plans and renewable offerings. 

“The DRBA has enjoyed a long partnership with WGL Energy and is proud to have selected them to continue as our electricity supplier for our main Delaware facilities and operations,” said Victor Ferzetti, CFO, DRBA. “WGL Energy’s competitiveness and commitment to the energy sector met the goals and objectives for energy procurement. We also appreciate the company’s renewable options, passion for the environment, and longstanding participation in our popular World Environment Day event.”
