ConEdison Solutions Subsidiary Honored by United States Postal Service
BGA, Inc. Earns 'Supplier Performance Award'
WHITE PLAINS, NY, Jun 02, 2009 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- BGA, Inc., a subsidiary of ConEdison Solutions -- one of the country's leading energy services companies, has earned a Supplier Excellence Award under the 2008 United States Postal Service (USPS) Supplier Performance Awards Program.

The award recognizes companies designated as "key suppliers" that demonstrate "outstanding supply chain management performance" and maintain "positive business relationships" with the Postal Service.

BGA, an energy services and engineering firm located in Tampa, Florida, was cited for excellence in delivering energy efficiency services to the USPS. Energy efficiency projects typically include upgrades to lighting and mechanical systems, as well as other energy improvements. The energy programs were praised for their cost-efficiency and also for helping the USPS enhance its services to the public.

This is the second time that ConEdison Solutions has been recognized by the USPS. In 2004, ConEdison Solutions itself received the Quality Supplier Award -- the prior title of the Supplier Excellence Award -- from the USPS for delivering substantial savings at hundreds of Postal Service locations throughout the greater New York City area.

"In today's energy marketplace, businesses and institutions of all kinds are implementing bold strategies to reduce energy use and energy spending," said Jorge Lopez, president of ConEdison Solutions. "We are proud to again be recognized by the USPS for superior performance as an energy services provider, and we look forward to further strengthening our partnership with the Postal Service in the years to come."

BGA and ConEdison Solutions have working relationships with the USPS extending as far back as 1997. Both have been recipients of a Shared Energy Services award from the Postal Service. Under this program, vendors receive a percentage or "share" of dollar savings attributable to energy conservation projects in return for assuming full implementation costs. In 2006, the USPS selected BGA to provide energy services to centers throughout the Southeast. At the same time, the Postal Service designated ConEdison Solutions to serve facilities in New York, New Jersey, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. ConEdison Solutions acquired BGA, Inc. in May 2007.

The presentation was made by the USPS at its 2008 Supplier Performance Awards Ceremony and Reception on Monday, May 11 at USPS headquarters in Washington, DC.
