Electric Rates Dropped All Year And Now Are Heading Up
Electric Rates were down at their 12 month historical low until today. Commercial electric rates for a 12 month termÂ were sitting at 7.9 cents a kWh and have been bouncing off of this support level the last 3 weeks until today when rates came up to 8.4 cents. There is a pretty good chance that electric rates are going to begin to start heading back up even further. If you are a commercial business or residential customer trying to decide what to do this year regarding your electricity bill I would recommend as an energy consultant to go ahead and lock in for a long term such as for 12 or 24 months. Electric rates have a high likelyhood of coming back up as high as 10 cents a kWh during year 2008. With electric rates in Texas being directly effected by natural gas prices we have an added variable besides just a technical chart. Today we saw a dramatic rise in natural gas futures which caused electric rates to come up significantly higher. February natural gas futures advanced 26.7 cents to $7.75 per 1,000 cubic feet Wednesday Jan 2 2008. The added demand of heating your home with NG in the winter along with power plants using NG to create electricity there will be enough added demand to cause electric rates to start coming up.
