There are several upsides to living and working in a deregulated state. For example, according to an article published last week in the Houston Business Journal, “Texas residential customers using retail electric providers reported higher satisfaction than those with regulated residential electric service, a J.D. Power and Associates survey shows.” The study measured satisfaction based on price, billing and payment, communications, and customer service. (While the article didn’t mention satisfaction ratings for business electricity customers, the very same providers are handling pricing, billing and payment, communications, and customer service for those customers, as well.)
Indeed, deregulation, which gives both residential and commercial electricity the option to choose who they purchase power from, has changed how we think about energy. It’s good news to hear that customer satisfaction has improved, but perhaps even better news to know that you, the customer, can hand pick your rate, contract and term. For residential customers, this means considerably more options than before, and business electricity customers have an even greater number of selections to choose from. Power can be priced a variety of different ways. A savvy commercial electricity customer can now determine not just the rate, but also the product, itself (how the electricity is priced), and can even negotiate the contract terms.
There are, literally, dozens of options for business electricity customers to choose from. However, to ensure that you are truly satisfied with your energy contract, you need to know what all of those options are and which will fit your business. It’s a lot of information to take in and analyze and, frankly, it can take a lot of time.
But it doesn’t have to.
