TEC combines our customers’ $600 million purchasing power to leverage the best pricing.
TEC leverages the $600 million buying power of 76 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.
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.
TEC’s $400 million in emergency response inventory means we have what you need, when you need it.
TEC provides quick access to our large inventory of utility supplies through our statewide distribution network.
In addition to our local inventory, as one of nine members of the Electric Utility Distributors Association, TEC offers access to more than $400 million in shared national inventory. With a combined revenue of over $1 billion, EUDA provides the buying power to help keep costs low for our members while maintaining large inventories to ensure that we have the materials you need.
