The Texas legislature approved energy deregulation in 2002 creating the path for competitive energy pricing and market. As a deregulated electricity market, state’s retail energy companies would need to compete - against each other - for the millions of Texas residential and business customers. The goal of a deregulated, or competitive energy market, is to give the power to choose to the consumer – which forced Spring electricity providers to be more efficient and lower costs – and offer improved customer service and lower rates to their customers. Going forward, the home and business customers of energy suppliers would have the ability to switch to a new energy provider (at the end of each contract) to maintain the advantage of the deregulated market.
Texas has had a very healthy market in the new era of competition under energy deregulation. Residents and businesses can shop for electricity plans from a wide array of energy suppliers and shop for the best rate available. This means less money in the pockets of energy companies and more for you.
How do you get the best deal on an electricity plan? We analyzed and digested hundreds of thousands of data points from utilities and suppliers and determined the most basic action you can take is to be proactive.
Simply by shopping suppliers and rates 6 months before your plan is set to renew can help you save 20% or more on your energy costs. Furthermore we found that most customers, depending on market conditions and usage, are likely to save by switching electric suppliers every 12 to 24 months.
Spring businesses can find big savings in the Texas energy market with just a little bit of due diligence. Since energy suppliers are forced to be more efficient, and offer business energy plans with competitive energy rates, it’s up to you to compare and find the best plan.
But finding the right plan can be difficult. In Texas, rates change by zip code. And with dozens of commercial energy suppliers, that means sifting through hundreds of plans.
This has made comparing energy plans confusing due to the sheer number of plans available, promotional rates that are not apples-to-apples and the legal fine print that details fees and penalties.
Commercial energy customers can maintain control over the process by reviewing their monthly usage and average monthly electricity bill.
If your average business electricity bill is less than $500 per month, then you can get a very good energy rate for your business through a simple online comparison of energy rates.
If your average commercial electricity bill is $500 or more per month, then you will most likely get a more competitive energy rate through a custom quote process. The custom process is exactly that – by providing basic business information, energy usage and submitting a recent electricity bill – EnergyBot can leverage partnerships with suppliers to work on your behalf and secure the best energy rate for your business. Although it will take more time to complete, the custom quote process may deliver a lower energy rate that will add up to big savings for your business.
For Spring businesses, researching energy rates and switching electricity plans can be a hassle. EnergyBot is built to make energy simple and help businesses find the best electricity rate quickly and easily.
Along with saving time, EnergyBot also helps businesses cut energy costs by 15% for two reasons.
Renewable energy is becoming more and more viable every day. Several energy suppliers focus completely on green energy plans and even more suppliers offer partial green plans.
We are constantly finding new ways to give Spring businesses and residents more renewable energy options. This includes solar, wind, hyrdo, and even geothermal energy solutions.
Harris County, where Spring is located, plans to turn the Sunnyside landfill into a 70 MW solar array which is enough electricity to power about 12,000 homes in the nearby area. They also hope this new solar array will help revitalize the Sunnyside neighborhood with discounted electricity rates coming directly from this new solar installation. With 70 MW, this would be one of the largest urban solar installations in Texas showing the potential of urban solar to revitalize difficult areas. This transformation will turn what was previously an eyesore for the community into a beautiful, clean source of energy for the entire county.

Utilities are the entities in charge of the operation and maintenance of the energy infrastructure, like wires and towers. The local utility in Spring is responsible for transporting electricity from the generators to residential homes and businesses in this specific region.
Energy providers in Spring like TXU Energy and Cirro Energy are the competitive energy retailers. In Texas, these companies are called Retail Electric Providers (REPs).
Energy suppliers offer two different types of plans for residential and business customers: a fixed-rate plan or a variable-rate plan.
Fixed-rate – meaning that the rate will remain constant for the term of the contract. Regardless of weather, natural events like tornados, or market volatility, your rate will not change. In most cases, a fixed-rate plan will have a term length of 6, 12, 24, or 36 months.
Variable rate plans may change on a monthly basis based on market factors. Variable-rate plans offer more flexibility but also present more volatility in pricing which may impact your monthly electricity bill.
In almost every case, EnergyBot recommends a fixed-rate plan. If you are unsure on what plan is right for your feel free to contact us.
