It’s recently come to our attention that there are some fairly substantial market changes that are impacting commercial customer electricity statements. These market changes have to do with something called the 4 Coincident Peak (4CP) program. If you participated in this program in 2016, then you might have already noticed that your utility has sent you new charges. The reason for this is because they have determined that your meter’s “demand element” has changed. But what do these changes really mean?

Since the deregulation of energy began impacting Dallas/Fort Worth in 2002, the residents of the DFW metroplex have been given their choice of electricity provider. The power to choose prepaid electricity in Dallas and Fort Worth has brought about a new way to buy electricity by means of a smart meter. Smart meters read electricity usage in real-time, allowing electric companies to connect a customer and read their daily usage in minutes. This in turn saves the company money and allows them to pass the savings on to you, the customer.

We love this plan! saving so much I had to call in a couple times to make sure they were charging me correctly. I had never paid under $100 in the summer before in the middle of the heat waves in Texas. I recommend and no I do not work for them, just a regular customer. ”

Nevada is Google.  Google purchased land to build a massive datacenter in Northern Nevada but before investing money they’ve requested alternatives to NV Energy. Lower Bills.  Electric choice creates competition — competition is good for consumers!  Whether you need electricity for your apartment or a massive datacenter like Google, companies will need to be competitive to earn business.  Energy providers will have to offer great rates and great service to earn and keep your business, otherwise you (and everyone else) will be free to...

But competition didn't necessarily end up cutting prices, according to the report. One contributing factor is confusion among customers as they try to choose among scores of retail electricity providers and the overwhelming variation of plans, leading many to just stick with familiar companies rather than look for better deals, according to the Texas Coalition for Affordable Power .
