Fuel Costs Sure Aren’t Lowering Electric Rates
Fuel costs associated with the production of electricity have been constantly increasing causing electric rates in Plano Texas to continue to remain at 3 year historical highs. This summer of 2008 we are experiencing close to record high temperatures in the state which demands more electricity and more natural gas to produce this Texas power for all us Texans who crank up our air conditioning systems to stay cool. Natural gas was trading around $8 when Plano electric rates were around 10 cents kWh for a 12 month fixed rate plan. Now natural gas is trading at $12 mmBtu and a correlating 12 month fixed electricity rate in Plano is now 14.4 cents kWh as of June 4 2008. Texas consumers are becoming increasingly heated because of unaffordable energy costs and many want to know what the Public Utility Commission of Texas is going to do about it.
Electric Companies Going out of Business
The last two months we saw PreBuy Electric and National Power electric companies both go out of business. More electric providers are expected to leave the state not honoring some of the fixed electric rate contracts they signed their customers to. Signing a Plano Texas electric service customer to a 12 month fixed electric rate and then raising the rate or cancelling the contract on them is equivalent to a bait switch tactic that should be reported to the Federal Trade Commission. This marketing tactic was left unchecked as many energy providers in Texas had these false rates up on the governments Power to Choose website. The PUCT received enough complaints that they are being a little more careful of scrutinizing the energy companies that want to put their prices up on the Texas government site.
