Shop Commercial Electric Rates in Texas - Shrink Your Business Electric Bill

Finding the right business electricity plan is an important part of running a successful company, especially in Texas. Depending on the industry, summer electric bills for businesses can double (or more!), so shopping for a competitive rate is important. But who has the time to contact electricity companies and compare different contracts? Many small and medium businesses are shopping for themselves and saving both time and energy costs.

Power To Choose Your Commercial Rate

Like most Texas residents, as a business owner you can shop around and choose the right electricity plan for your business. Thank you deregulation! Choices include basic business energy plans (typically 12 – 60 months), tiered rate plans where the energy rate decreases each year, plans with a cheaper energy rate at night, and even plans that contribute to veteran organizations. The options are growing as electricity companies get more creative and tailor their plans to different industries.

Know Your Usage

Knowing how much electricity you use goes a long way towards finding the best plan for your business. Knowing when you use electricity may also help you find the right plan.

  • Are you a retail store, office building, church, restaurant, or manufacturing facility? Electricity demand levels vary widely by type of business and this impacts your final energy rate.
  • Does your business run primarily during the day, night, or 24/7? Some providers are now offering reduced rates for off-hours usage.
  • Are you scaling up or down your usage in the future? Planning for changes can help you select the right contract length and avoid costly termination fees.

If you are an existing business, your new provider will pull your usage history before you sign any contracts and help you choose the right plan.
