Choosing an Electrical Supply Partner in Texas Is Easier

January 1, 2014

texasDeregulation has made serious headlines, some of them good and some of them bad. However, the proof is now in – deregulated electricity does offer serious energy savings. Now, the most difficult thing is going to be finding an electrical supply partner that meets your needs. While it might seem like choosing a company is difficult, it can be easier than you think.

Reputation Matters a Great Deal

One of the first things you’ll need to consider in any electrical supply partner is the company’s reputation. How long have they been in business and how well have they served their customers? Check out the company’s rating on the Better Business Bureau’s website. Investigate the number of complaints on the company and how those complaints have been handled. What do current customers have to say about the company’s service? Why did past customers leave the company? The answers to these questions will help you make an informed choice.


Length of History

While most power companies in the state of Texas have arisen since deregulation took place, some are newer than others are. Of course, there’s nothing inherently wrong with working with a new company, but there are advantages to choosing an electrical supply partner that’s been around for some time. After all, it’s been 10 years since deregulation first took effect, and a company with a decade (or even half that) in experience can be a good choice. Remember – a company that’s been around for some time is obviously doing something right.

Reliability of Customer Service

Understand that the power company you choose does not own the infrastructure (the power lines), nor does it have anything to do with generating the power that you receive. That’s still the province of the incumbent power company. However, the electrical supply company you choose does have a great deal to do with your experience in terms of customer service and the speed with which resolutions are provided for your problems. Have a downed tree across your power line? You’ll need to call your electrical supply partner. Pay attention to how reliable and fast each provider’s customer service department is, or you might wind up with a partner you don’t like.

Based on the information above, you should find choosing an electrical supply partner simpler and easier than you might have at first thought.
