How to ensure you're getting the best energy prices.

In business, almost everything is negotiable. From negotiating for the best price on office equipment to securing the best business energy prices, it pays to do your homework and talk to your provider.

While opening a dialogue with an electricity provider can help you learn about available plans and which one works best for your business, it’s important to remember that market forces drive the price of electricity. Most electricity still gets generated using natural resources, so the basic cost of those figures into how much you pay for electricity. In Texas, your bill from any provider will also include transmission and distribution utility delivery charges, which the Public Utility Commission of Texas permits distribution companies to charge in order to cover the costs of maintaining equipment such as poles, wires and meters, and to restore equipment and facilities damaged by storms.

While there is little you as a customer can do to influence those factors that drive business energy prices, you can still take steps to ensure you’re getting the best rate and plan for your needs.

When choosing an electricity provider, it’s tempting to go with the one that offers you the lowest price. But keep in mind – the lowest rate isn’t always the best deal. Many hidden factors can impact your bill and cost you more down the line. You can also minimize the unpredictability of business energy prices by signing up for a fixed rate plan. Fixed rate plans eliminate monthly surprises and guesswork, which is why TXU Energy offers a range of fixed rate plans that cater to the needs of small businesses. Plans with an indexed rate are determined by a predefined formula that is disclosed to the customer and are based on a public index or other publicly available information.

While prices might seem like the most important factor, the real opportunity to save arrives when you look at the selection of business electricity plans offered and the ability to customize a plan to meet your needs. TXU Energy offers businesses an array of tools to help conserve energy, minimize costs and improve efficiency throughout their operations. With a variety of plans to meet your needs and budget, including cash rewards, and tools that allow you to manage your usage and budget for optimum savings, TXU Energy provides everything you need.
