Electricity Rates for June 7 2007 average right around .094 cents kwh for a 12 month term. This commercial rate could be a little higher or a little lower depending on your usage. For a commercial business using over 2,000,000 kwh we should be able to get the commercial rate right at .09 cents kwh and possibly right under that by a small fraction.
Electric Rates in Texas
Electric Rates in Texas right now are not very competive with the rest of the United States. As soon as more nuclear plants are built we should expect rates to come down to where the rest of the nation is at. Until that happens rates will continue to average above most of the other states in the nation. Nuclear electricity can be produced right around 2 cents kwh right now. Compare that with what we can get for commercial rates and you can see that having nuclear far outways the cons of having it.
Texas businesses could stand to save on their energy bill and add to the bottom line but as long as electricity rates stay as high as 9 cents kwh the electricity bills will continue to be a major burden.
