Manchester officials: No issues with energy contractor
MANCHESTER — City officials on Monday said they remained confident in its energy services contractor, despite the efforts of a federal regulatory agency to sanction the company, Competitive Energy Services (CES).
The director of that company, Freedom Energy Logistics, had urged city officials to part ways with CES since it had been sanctioned by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) for allegedly engaging in a “fraudulent scheme” that involved colluding with large clients in Maine to overstate energy usage. CES has challenged the penalties in federal court; the case is ongoing.
Tim Clougherty, the city’s deputy public works director, told the committee that he was pleased with CES and didn’t think the city’s contract would be affected by the federal case.
There are no concerns there either, as far as I understand,” he said.
