How Do I Know My Business is Getting a Good Rate for Electricity?
Published by Tara Energy

A business' profitability will hinge on a wide range of variables, but reducing overhead—particularly by lowering electricity expenditures—is low-hanging fruit for most businesses if they take the time to look for a better rate. Choosing the best business electricity rates, however, is not a simple matter of opting for a lower advertised price point but involves researching additional factors, including the following:

  • Customized plans: Many electric suppliers will offer multiple plan-types, including fixed-rate, variable rate, and indexed. This gives you the flexibility to emphasize long-term predictability, short-term savings potential, or market dynamics. The best providers, however, will also work with you to tailor-make a plan that fits your exact needs rather than merely offer a few preset take-it-or-leave-it options.
  • Perks for volume: High-usage clients are hotly competed for by energy suppliers, and most are willing to offer discounted rates for heavy usage, while sometimes charging a higher rate if wattage falls below a predetermined monthly amount. Other perks, like a dedicated account manager or access to specialized software programs may also accrue.
  • Savings hours: During off-peak usage hours, many suppliers will charge a lesser rate. To take full advantage of these savings, it may require the installation of advanced, digital meters, but these will soon pay for themselves.
  • Lower one-time fees: Initial deposit requirements vary in amount and in "rules" from supplier to supplier, and those offering lower one-time fees or eliminating some of them altogether save you money beyond just giving you a low kWh rate.

There are a number of factors involved in determining the rates that a company can expect to receive from a retail electricity provider.

One of those factors is consumption. The amount of energy you need annually will have an impact on the rates quoted. Obviously, the more power your firm uses, the more you will pay.

A simple way to tell if your business is getting good rates is to shop around. You can compare your existing rates to the rates being offered by other retailers. If there are better rates available, then you might consider changing companies. A good place to start is with a retailer that specializes in providing electricity to commercial entities and can customize a plan to suit your particular usage requirements.

Good rates are even better when forged with reliability, state-of-the-art value-added services, and strong commitment to relationship building.

Living in Houston, you can expect mild winters and hot summers. It's just what happens when you live in a sub-tropic climate. Our springs and falls are beyond compare for pleasant weather, but when summer rolls around, there is almost a palpable sense of communal dread. When temps can easily break 100° in August, we need all the help we can get to keep our energy costs reasonable. Here are some tips for doing just that:

Keep the Thermostat Between 76 and 78

This may seem warm—until you step inside after being out in upper-90s Houston weather, that is. This setting will reduce your energy costs.

Use Appropriate Insulation and Sealant

Proper insulation and sealant will keep the cool air in and the hot air out.

Draw Your Shades

This is simple and quick. Sunlight through the windows will warm your house causing the AC to fight to control it. Pulling the shades and drawing the curtains can help keep the electric bill at bay.

Plant Shrubs and Trees Where Your Home Catches Sunlight

Improve the curb appeal of your home and save on your cooling bills at the same time. Natural shade does wonders for helping keep temps and costs down.

Switch to a Provider with Better Rates

This tip is easier to implement than you might think. Do some online research until you find a company that has rates more in line with your budget. It can pay to switch.

 

Being able to choose your electricity provider in Houston is a wonderful thing. With choices come healthy competition and great offers. Beyond excellent rates, there are some things you should expect from a reputable electricity retailer:

1. Great customer service

Customer service is the lifeblood of a company. Exemplary customer service is invaluable. Don’t settle for less than excellent.

2. Online bill management

You should be able to log in and track your account and pay your bill online.

3. Establishing service over the phone

You can expect to start service with a phone call, and some companies have an easy online signup option as well.

4. Moving to an out-of-service area should not incur a penalty

When life circumstances require you to move, you shouldn't be punished for leaving the provider's service area.

5. Contract expiration date

It is important to be aware of your contract expiration date. You should be able to locate it on your bill.

6. Convenient bill paying options

Some options include paying online, auto-pay from a bank account, check by mail, or cash.

When you own a business there are many different expenses your business will incur. These can include the cost of rent, licensing, inventory, utilities, and so much more.  

This is why it's important to know whether your business is getting a good deal on electricity or if you're being taken for a ride. Here are a few ways you can tell.  

1. Competitive Rates & Pricing  

Many electric companies offer different rates and pricing options for business. To ensure you're getting the best deal make sure you shop around and see what everyone has to offer.  

2. Peace of Mind  

Does your electric company offer you peace of mind when paying for electricity? If you aren't doing business with an established energy supplier, chances are you probably aren’t getting the best service possible. An established energy provider will know exactly how to help your business and answer any questions you may have.  

3. Customization & Flexibility  

Did your current electricity provider set you up on a one-size-fits-all energy plan? If so, you might want to switch to a company that can cater to your company's unique energy needs.

It can be quite surprising to learn how much business electricity rates can vary from supplier to supplier, and using an online comparison site or other method to find the best rate for your region can yield quick and easy savings. Sometimes, however, finding the best possible deal for your business is not always as simple as comparing two rate figures--other factors enter into the equation as well.

Three of the most important things to consider when seeking a genuinely superior business electricity rate are:

1. Reliably Low, Upfront Rates

Don't get caught off-guard by hidden fees! When researching rates and before committing to a provider, ensure you're aware of any solar surcharges, late-payment penalties or processing fees that may hike up your bill. Compare based on the total amount you would pay for the quantity of electricity you will likely use, not just the raw rates.

2. Flexibility & Customization

Many electric suppliers will offer you several plan packages, including: fixed-rate plans that lock in prices for years, variable-rate plans that change month to month, and indexed-rate plans with rates fluctuating with natural gas prices or another commodity. Choose a company that gives you lots of options and will customize a plan just for you.

3. TOU Meters & "Perks"

The first thing you've probably heard about Houston's electricity market is that it's been deregulated. On the upside, this means you can choose the provider of your choice. On the downside, you have to figure out how to choose the best provider for your business's particular needs. 

While this may seem tricky, there are ways to ensure that your business is getting the best electricity rate possible. It starts with understanding your options.

Fixed, Indexed, or Variable Contracts--What Does That Mean?

Electricity plans fall into 3 categories: fixed plans, indexed plans, and variable plans. A fixed plan will ensure that your monthly rate doesn't change throughout the contract period. It's steady and predictable, allowing you from one month to the next to plan your electricity expenses accurately. With indexed contract rates, your monthly expenses could fluctuate, as the cost depends on various factors such as the current energy market, the season, and the time of day. And finally, variable rates are also prone to high and low swings according to economic factors and your provider's "going rate," but typically don't require a long-term contract. a provider who will work with you to create a plan that is optimized for your business's needs.
