Marketing

Summit has relationships with a large number of load serving utility entities and several major industrial consumers of energy and industrial products such as urea and ammonia as well as CO2 for EOR.

Summit’s marketing experience and network of contacts includes development relationships, power sales and gas fuel management relationships, financing relationships, equipment supply relationships and operations and maintenance relationships.

Summit’s founders, Don Hodel (former Secretary of Energy, Secretary of Interior and BPA Administrator) and Earl Gjelde (former COO of the Department of Energy, Under Secretary of Interior and Deputy BPA Administrator) have a long standing public power background, and Summit therefore is particularly known for its expertise with public power entities and its ability to provide low-cost, flexible power options for that sector. In addition, Summit personnel have worked for numerous IOUs and POUs and other independent power producers, giving the firm relationships throughout the sector.
