Doing Great Things – Together
According to Grace Hastings, Oncor Supplier Diversity Manager –
During 2013, Oncor conducted a sourcing effort to identify a strategic partner to provide complete fuel management services. Ricochet was selected as Oncor’s supplier from a highly qualified pool. Since that time, Ricochet has supported Oncor by adding several services, including providing bulk high-voltage insulating transformer oil, fleet fuel card management, Oncor onsite fuel equipment, consulting and project management, and formal storm restoration support. Also, since 2016, Ricochet has provided project management oversight and support for Oncor’s onsite fuel replacement project. To date, Ricochet has successfully managed the replacement of onsite fuel equipment at 19 Oncor service centers, added bulk fuel equipment to two facilities, and completed the removal of underground storage tanks at one site. We are excited to wrap up the onsite fuel project during 2018 and 2019.
This work allows Oncor to continue to leverage the strategic and economic benefits of onsite fuel capabilities and provides an opportunity for Ricochet to further develop their business offering for repair, maintenance, and inspection services.
We look forward to continuing our long-term relationship with Ricochet and anticipate that they will continue to be a strategic partner in improving and streamlining processes, securing cost savings, and facilitating Oncor’s commitment to delivering safe and reliable electricity to all its customers.
Kelly Roberts, President and CEO of Ricochet Fuel, had this to say regarding the recent award –
Today, Ricochet Fuel received a prestigious award for excellent supplier service. Mentioned in the ceremony were the many contributions that we made to creating and implementing solutions that resulted in their ability to increase efficiencies in their operations.
We have provided not just fuel, but also transformer oil, equipment repair services and service management, as well as environmental services and compliance. We converted their old fuel equipment to the new modern FuelMaster card readers, and they now can get centralized reporting for their inventory TCEQ reporting. We designed their fueling program to accept the WEX card at their Oncor locations and at the retail locations, providing Oncor with one fuel report for all their fuel use. This created greater visibility for Oncor to track and see where their fuel spend is.
The bottom line is – none of this could be done without our Ricochet Fuel employees. I want to thank all of them for their contribution in making Ricochet a wonderful place to work and an amazing supplier for our many customers. We should all be very proud.
