Energy Competition: No Longer a “Dirty” Word

Posted May 9, 2013 | By Nick Henn

I spoke at the Energy Matters Summit in Ontario on May 7. Below are snippets of my presentation about the benefits of energy retail competition.

Residential and business customers want choice and control in all aspects of their lives, so why not their energy supplier? Energy should be like a telephone service.

Tips to Battle Skyrocketing Summer Energy Prices in Texas

Posted May 9, 2013 | By Mike Krygowski

It’s that time of the year in Texas that everyone loves (or dreads): summer time! Hello grilling, swimming and running your air conditioner. Simultaneously, it’s also the time when your electricity bill skyrockets as you attempt to keep your home or business cool.

Two summers ago, many Texans experienced sticker shock as the state dealt with one of the hottest summers on record and in turn, electricity prices skyrocketed. The heat was unbearable and was made worse by the lack of rain. This year could be a repeat but only time will tell. The risks due to a hot summer are greater this year because the state’s drought situation has worsened over the past six months. Last year we didn’t experience that as the state saw a significant amount of rain specifically in the eastern part of the state which kept temperatures down and the ground moist which helped cap the radiation heating throughout the hottest parts of the daytime. It’s a good time to think about what you can do to protect yourself from the possible upcoming energy price spikes. Read more for some tips.
