The City of Lubbock Awards Procurement RFP to Tradition Energy

Tradition Will Assist the City With Its Historic Transition to ERCOT and Electricity Deregulation

Tradition Energy announces it was recently awarded a Professional Services Agreement through a competitive RFP process conducted by the City of Lubbock, the 10th-largest city in Texas. 

The contracted Energy Consulting and Management Services are related to procuring electricity for the City and assisting it with its exciting entry into ERCOT (Electric Reliability Council of Texas) and the deregulated electricity market in the coming months. 

Lubbock Power & Light (LP&L), the local utility company serving the City of Lubbock, has been working to make infrastructure updates to connect with the ERCOT system since March 2018. In May of 2021, LP&L successfully connected 70% of its system (approximately 83,000 customers) to the ERCOT grid, and the city council later confirmed the vote for deregulation in 2022. This interconnection with ERCOT is the first in Lubbock's history and the first for any regulated municipality in the state in 25 years to move toward deregulation. 

The City of Lubbock joins Lubbock County, Texas Tech University, University Medical Center, and others who have selected Tradition Energy as their advisor on procurement strategy and process as they transition to the deregulated ERCOT market.

"The City of Lubbock looks forward to working with Tradition Energy as we navigate our historical transition to the competitive markets and join other Texas cities participating in energy deregulation," said Tray Payne, Mayor of the City of Lubbock.

"Their deep experience with Texas local government clients, ERCOT market expertise, client support, and team structure were critical factors in the City's decision to award to Tradition," said Jarrett Atkinson, City Manager of the City of Lubbock.

"We are honored to receive this award from the City of Lubbock," said Alan Kurzer, CEO of Tradition Energy. "The Tradition team is very excited to share its ERCOT energy market expertise and introduce the City to the opportunities a competitive market presents."

Non-Profit Ministry Hits Major Milestone in Bible Video Game Development

Non-Profit Ministry Hits Major Milestone in Bible Video Game Development
The Anointed

Alabama-based non-profit video game publisher Intelligent Media & Design (IMD Interactive) recently announced that its free-to-play Bible video game The Anointed: David Saves Keilah (DSK) recently hit a major milestone in development.

The Anointed franchise is now one step closer to beta with it's latest development update on Steam. The update includes basic training and shepherd levels, enhanced combat, stealth, cinematics, tutorials and platforming. 

DSK is a smaller version of The Anointed: Heart of David (HOD), which follows the life of biblical hero David from shepherd to king of Judah. The Anointed: HOD references multiple books in the Bible, primarily beginning in 1 Samuel 16 and ending in 2 Samuel 2. 

IMD also announced that in the last 12 months, with over 2.2 million impressions, DSK has been installed on computers in over 130 countries with a very small marketing budget.

IMD Interactive President Drayton Cosby stated that the latest Steam update is a big leap for IMD and puts The Anointed in position to move away from proof of concept (POC) to the minimum viable product (MVP) stage of its launch phase.

“With this update, we are now ready to test our small group curriculum with churches,” said Cosby. “This is an exciting time for those that have been praying to reach Generation Z and youth leaders searching for innovative methods to bring more students to God’s Word.”

IMD Interactive Chief Operating Officer (COO) and Head of Interactive Carlo Romano stated that IMD works diligently to shift expectations, which have historically been low for Christian media and video games. 

“We have accomplished much with a fraction of the resources that secular and popular games have,” said Romano. “Our hearts drive us, and support is building, as people begin to recognize our games are more than just entertainment.”

IMD Interactive Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Matt Clark said there is no more interactive and engaging way to tell a story than video games, and he thinks that the best stories for every generation are the ones in the Bible. 

“We are striving to bring the ancient world to life for our players in a fun and entertaining way, so players get a feel for what David and his time was really like," said Clark. “We hope this leads players to be curious for what else is in the Bible, especially the stories about the son of David, King Jesus.”

To access the The Anointed: DSK Steam store page, players must be 13 years of age or older. For parents who are considering allowing younger children to play, please visit IMD’s YouTube videos and FAQs for more information.
