HOUSTON, April 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Acclaim Energy Advisors secured twenty years of electrical reliability for Clear Lake City Water Authority ("CLCWA") by providing them with the service of nine 500-megawatt generators. This equips the residents and businesses, within the district, with the assurance that water and sewer services will not be threatened by future power or grid outages.
By mid-2012, the new generators will be installed in four locations within the CLCWA district. This system will save taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars by providing a solution that improves efficiency, reliability and reduces potential lost revenue for businesses caused by service interruptions.
"Energy reliability should be a priority for all government entities, particularly with the stress the electricity grid has endured over the last several years and is predicted to endure during the coming summer months. CLCWA has taken steps to ensure reliability of their residents' water and sewage services in the occurrence of an emergency blackout or storm. CLCWA's board understands the value of having a professionally delivered service that would multiply levels of redundancy, including 24/7 remote monitoring, emergency fuel for storms and guaranteed repair or replacement of any units within twenty-four hours of an emergency," said John Elder, CEO of Acclaim Energy Advisors.
James Byrd, General Manager with the Clear Lake City Water Authority added, "We are certain that CLCWA has invested in a worry-free reliability system that will protect our community and meet our states mandates for having back–up generation to protect the quality of life for our residents and businesses. The low monthly payments negotiated with Acclaim will enable us to meet our strict budget criteria and satisfy the tax payers for many years to come."
