Save Money by Switching Texas Commercial Electricity Providers

By ShopTexasElectricity Subscribe to RSS | January 28th 2012 | Views:

One of the biggest benefits consumers get from the deregulated Texas electricity industry aside from their power to choose electric providers is that they can enjoy cheap electricity and competitive commercial electricity rates. In fact, Texas consumers enjoy the 3rd cheapest rates in the country and this is due to the price caps placed on wholesale electricity. To give you a better figure, the wholesale price cap currently sits at only $3000 per MWh which is lower compared to other states and five times lower than the $12,500 per MWh market cap employed in Australia.

To get the full benefits and save lots of money from your electric bills, business owners can exercise their advantage and switch commercial electricity providers. These providers compete for your business and are utilizing various ways to gain your trust and eventually work with them as the power provider for your business or commercial establishments. However, shopping for commercial electricity providers can be a complicated task, particularly true if you have little understanding of how things work in the Texas electricity industry and how you can compute for all the charges and rates and come up with the final dollar figure that you have to pay for.

Shop for Texas Commercial Electricity Providers

There are more than a hundred retail electric providers competing as your commercial electricity provider. Going through this maze can be a daunting task if you want to strike out on this road on your own. You need to go through all the details required for you to switch providers, as well as understand the complex jumble of applicable fees, electric rates and payment plans – a very time consuming and tedious activity can cost you substantial amounts of money if not done properly.

One of the good things in a deregulated Texas electricity market however is the emergence of consolidators, aggregators or brokerage companies that help simplify the shopping experience for your business. These companies can do the market evaluation for you, even providing you with a customized analysis that takes into account the commercial electricity provider’s energy rates, your historical electricity usages, and other pertinent fees and charges in your desired plans and come up with a package that you can use in the selection process.

Where to Start

Working with a licensed energy aggregator or brokerage company to help you in shopping for a commercial electricity provider can assure that you are doing the selection process right and come out with the best choice that will give you the highest overall benefits. You can make the selection and purchasing process online through the brokerage or aggregator company’s website and they will take care of the rest. In this way, you don’t need to go through all the hassle of negotiations and focus on what you should do best – running your business.

When choosing a brokerage company, select one that works and maintains a non-agency relationship with several commercial electricity providers. These companies have already screened these companies from among the several retail electric providers all competing against each other for your business. They can work as your energy consultant and help you get the best and cheapest commercial electricity rates as possible.
