Why TCAP?… in 22 Seconds
What is TCAP?
We are a non-profit, for cities, by cities aggregator of electricity.
By buying electricity together, TCAP’s members enjoy much better pricing than they could obtain on their own.
We’re governed by an all-volunteer, 15-member board, composed of city leaders. No hidden agendas… just yours.
Ever wonder how much of your electricity cost goes right to the provider’s bottom line? For TCAP members: Zero. Zilch. Nada!
