Commercial Energy Quote

Texas businesses can choose their electricity company

Small, commercial, or industrial businesses in the Texas deregulated energy market can choose their retail electricity provider (REP) . It’s important. Commercial businesses spend an average of more than $7,500 a year on electricity, according to the Energy Information Administration.

Deregulation gives Texas businesses an advantage. Few states allow businesses to shop for commercial electric plans. In fact, many companies in the United States only have one choice when it comes to their business electricity rates – the local utility.

Texas initiated energy choice in 2002. Lawmakers did it with the understanding that creating a competitive energy environment could drive down business electricity rates. That could save commercial electric customers and residential customers money.

How companies use business energy

More than two-thirds of commercial energy used by businesses goes toward lighting, refrigeration, ventilation, and cooling, according to the EIA. Other uses include computers, other office equipment, cooking, and space and water heating.

The takeaway from that is that commercial energy plans should be customized for the way businesses actually use power. The energy experts at Choose Texas Power can help with that.

Commercial energy plans

Business owners have similar options from their electric companies as residential consumers. Choose from fixed, variable, or renewable energy plans. You can work with us to create a solution to fit your unique needs. For more information about plan options and what they mean, please see our resources for picking an electricity plan or switching providers.

Choose Texas Power works with a number of commercial energy providers, including Ambit Energy and Hudson Energy.

Business energy in my area

Commercial electricity rates vary according to the area your business operates in. Transmission and delivery charges differ. Some fees and taxes can as well. That means it’s important to know energy rates where you operate. One way to do that is to run a search for “commercial energy rates near me” or “business electric rates in my area.”

That can work. But either search will return pages of results, and you’ll have to go through the different websites one by one. Even then, you might not find what you need. Choose Texas Power can customize rates in your area without all that searching.

Because businesses have different needs than residents, we do not list business electricity plans in the Choose Texas Power marketplace. Instead, submit the form on this page and one of our team members can work with you to build a plan.
