Texas Business Owners: Explore Commercial Energy Offers
No matter the size of your Texas business, you might have the power to choose an electric company to supply your energy. An energy deregulation law came into effect more than a decade ago, giving both homeowners and business owners the opportunity to compare Texas electric companies – or retail electric providers (REPs) – as well as their competitive supply plans and offers. Deregulation has created more competition in the Texas electricity market. Also, it allows consumers to shop around to find an energy plan that works best for their needs. When shopping for an energy offer, Texans might consider factors such as green products, contract lengths or customer care. With the power to choose an electric supply rate, business owners can weigh various pros and cons to make an informed energy decision!
Although Texas is deregulated in most areas, not all areas offer electric choice. Before you continue your search to find a commercial energy offer that suits your business energy requirements, make sure you’re located in a deregulated area.
Exercise your power to choose a commercial energy rate
Business owners should keep in mind that deregulation can give their business an advantage. In Texas, electric choice is open to businesses of all sizes. However, keep in mind that some REPs do not offer electric supply plans for all business sizes. When you begin to compare supply rates for your company, you’ll come to find that it’s a different process in a commercial setting than that of residential. Business owners have the opportunity to negotiate a supply rate with REPs in the area, which can help commercial energy customers find a lower supply rate in the long run.
Commercial energy customers also have the option to look into green energy initiatives. Texas already has a large presence within the renewable energy industry, ranking first in the U.S. for wind power generation, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). With green commercial energy practices, Texas businesses have the opportunity to support job growth in the state and make a positive environmental impact.
Although deregulation has created a more competitive atmosphere within the commercial energy industry, it doesn’t mean that your energy supply’s reliability and delivery will change. When you choose from various Texas electric companies, you should expect the same service you had before. The Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) states that your REP is your main contact for any issues regarding customer service or your bill. For any outages or repairs, you’ll contact the transmission distribution utility (TDU). A TDU is also responsible for safely delivering electricity supply to your business.
