High Electric Rates In Houston
Houston has some of the highest electric rates in the state of Texas. The reason for the higher energy rates has to do with the bottleneck and congestion in this metropolitan area. The city just requires a whole lot of energy to keep the place running. The problem is that outlying cities that don’t use as much electricity have been paying for this congestion that Houston is the culprit of.
How To Solve The Energy Congestion In Houston
The Houston congestion problem affecting other surrounding cities is likely going to be a thing of the past when the Texas nodal system comes into affect. The nodal system will allow Texas cities that surround the city of Houston to pay for their own bottleneck problems which will likely be much less congested then the city of Houston. This will allow the cities in Harris County to pay less then the city of Houston for their electricity rate. Very simply, Houston will pay a higher rate for being more congested and other cities in Harris County will no longer be penalized for something that is Houston’s problem.
