BNSF inks energy-management deal to save dollars


Burlington Northern Santa Fe Nov. 1 reached a four-year energy management agreement with TXU Energy aimed at improving the Class I's energy consumption across its 33,500-mile network and reducing its utility costs.

Dallas-based TXU Energy will procure or negotiate contracts for BNSF's energy needs and consolidate billing for the railroad's nearly 20,000 U.S. utility accounts — now comprising multiple bills for facilities in 28 states.

BNSF also plans to rely on TXU Energy to conduct demand-side management assessments of the railroad's energy equipment and recommend more energy-efficient process improvements.
