In San Patricio County Texas electricity rates have dropped for both commercial businesses and residential homes. The reason for the sudden drop does not have anything to do with the weather. Although in many parts of Texas there have only been aboutÂ two 95 degree days.Â This does not make for a very hot summer although it is plenty hot to be running the air conditioner.
The reason for the drop in electricity prices in the face of summer heat has more to do with energy traders driving the price down in the short term due to speculation, greed and fear. Energy traders can cause the commodities market to go up and down for reasons that have little to do with the fundamental pricing strategies used in pricing raw materials such as natural gas and coal.
What do you do when energy drops in the face of a hot summer?
You lock in an electricity rate while the price is lower then it has been at all year. Lock in for 1 or 2 years and feel the satisfaction of getting in while the market is low. The market can spike up in less then a week. Don’t hesitate but do it while you can. This fall in prices will not necessarily last for long.
We have seen prices at .078 cents kwh which is a fantastic rate for a commercial business looking to add a little money to their bottom line.
Sign up while prices are low or you may have to wait and try again next year.
