As winter turns to spring, Texas homeowners don't have to contend with heating costs any longer. With the transition of the colder weather to more mild temperatures, you may be wondering what you can do to pay lower rates for electricity in Houston. In general, electricity rates drop briefly between the end of the winter, when heating costs are highest, and the beginning of summer, when cooling costs skyrocket. The lowered consumption of electricity for space heaters in winter is offset by the use of air conditioners in the summer, according to the U.S. Energy Information Association. So the question is, what can you do to lower your energy bills this spring?

Many living on fixed incomes cannot afford higher prices for electric in Houston. While median household incomes remain very close to 1995 averages, energy prices are surging. Electricity already accounts for 60% of the residential bills of the elderly, and if that increases many will suffer. Often children are in homes with fixed or limited incomes. They will also suffer if their caretakers are required to choose between electricity and other life necessities. Almost a million families living close to poverty would be pushed over the edge if electricity prices were raised by even 10%. The energy bill burden for households is already close to unbearable. Energy prices take up a considerable portion of the income for a family living on less than $10,000 per year.

Today, more than ever, people are conscious about how much energy they consume and how it affects their pockets. This is particularly true of people in Houston, as well as other parts of Texas, where electricity consumption surpasses that of other states in the Union. To this end, homeowners are always on the lookout for affordable, less expensive electricity in Houston, and recent legislation has made the process a lot easier.

Texas residents are fortunate to have many choices when it comes to their electricity provider. However, with the changes brought by deregulation, consumers have to decide which provider offers the best deal. Texas provides a website that allows you to see different plans for your area, but making comparisons is much like looking at apples and oranges. What should you ask when you're trying to find better electricity rates in Houston?

Since the Industrial Revolution of 1790, electricity has taken front-and-center in the world of man. With over 7 billion people on the planet, the industrial machine needs every bit of (largely) hydrocarbon-fueled resolve to make sure there's plenty of energy available for the many tasks performed each day. For homeowners, record rates for electricity in Houston have driven many to ask a few questions. How much energy am I currently using? How much do I actually need?

Over the past year, electricity rates have been rising, even while oil prices fall. At first blush, it may seem counter-intuitive: as the cost of the oil used to produce electricity falls, so should the cost of the electricity produced. The connection between electricity rates and oil prices is far more complicated than that, however, and consumers shouldn't be expecting the trend in electricity to change any time soon. This means that small commercial operations should find new ways to lower their business electricity rates.

In 2002, the State of Texas became deregulated in the electricity industry. This means consumers in most Texas cities have the power to choose an energy provider rather than being limited to one. Just as a reference, consumers in Houston have 252 choices of electricity providers. Lowering electrical usage is the best way to lower how much you're spending on the electricity bill. Certain things cannot be changed because they could limit production and potential income, but how can businesses reduce their electricity usage and lower their electric bills? Here are a few tips we've put together to help save electricity and lower your business electricity rates.
