January 07, 2016 – Norman, OK – Power Costs, Inc. (PCI) announces its engagement with several entities in Mexico to help optimize their participation in the upcoming Wholesale Electricity Market.

Several clients are now able to leverage PCI’s extensive experience with other North American ISO markets in order to analyze and perform due diligence for optimal participation at various levels including as Generators, Generation Intermediaries, Suppliers, Qualified Users, and Power Marketers (Importers and Exporters). PCI solutions and services for Mexico market participants include:

  • Comprehensive ‘Bid-to-Bill’ platform for supporting front-to-back-office activities in MEM
  • Extensive analytics for operational performance evaluation
  • Scalability to enable interactivity with other North American markets
  • Consulting services to evaluate potential Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) and economic evaluation of new development projects

“As part of our strategic expansion plan for full North American coverage, we have been fortunate to work with several entities in Mexico to build market ready software that is essential to market participants. We are fully committed to Mexico and its energy reform and look forward to our continued success as the premier software vendor in North America,” said Jason Kram, PCI’s Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer.
