Ultimate Flexibility and Local Control

  • Members make their own purchase decisions while still benefitting from economies of scale.

  • No member takes on the risk of another members' purchase decisions.

Member-Held Contracts = Optionality

  • Members don't have to fit into a "one size fits all" when it comes to their BPA contracts.

  • This will be especially critical for future Regional Dialogue and Post 2028 contract decision points, where BPA customers can choose between different Tier Two Rate options and contract types.
