Purchasing Specifications for Distribution Construction

Specifications for Vendors Who Sell Distribution Materials

Austin Energy’s purchase specifications cover distribution equipment that needs specific purchasing requirements. These specifications are for vendors, distributors, and manufacturers who want to sell their materials.

The purchase specifications display the acceptable purchasing requirements for distribution-level equipment that have been approved by the Austin Energy Distribution Standards Committee. Exceptions not covered in these purchase specifications can be due to AE Distribution Standards approved allowances and certain distribution equipment that only require a purchase description.

If you are interested in presenting a new distribution product for Austin Energy's consideration, please submit a cut sheet (brochure), testing data, and references for the product to AE Distribution Standards to determine our interest in the new product.

How to Read the Purchasing Specifications

Each purchasing specification has a unique E-XXXX number that is used as an identifying reference. This unique number can be found on this website as well as in applicable Austin Energy item number purchasing descriptions going out for bid.

The following specifications are available to download. Please contact us if you have questions or need additional assistance.
