January 1, 2011 – Cities Aggregation Power Project (CAPP) and South Texas Aggregation Project (STAP) merge to form TCAP
The Texas Coalition for Affordable Power is a unique alliance formed for a singular purpose – to purchase electricity in bulk for municipal needs. TCAP is a non-profit city coalition that pools the energy needs of its more than 150 member cities to negotiate better prices from power generators.
TCAP supports electric market reforms that will save money for Texans. Affordable power in a fully competitive market means economic development for Texas communities and a better life for its citizens.

Is a policy analyst for TCAP, a coalition of cities and other political subdivisions that purchase electricity in the deregulated market for their own governmental use. Because high energy costs can impact municipal budgets and the ability to fund essential services, TCAP, as part of its mission, actively promotes affordable energy policies. High energy prices also place a burden on local businesses and home consumers.
