One added benefit to living in Abilene is having the right to choose the cheapest electricity rates and providers for your commercial businesses.
In 2001, Texas became a deregulated state which gives residents of Abilene and other deregulated areas throughout the Lone Star State the option to shop and compare multiple electricity rates and providers before signing up with the best option.
To begin the process, simply type your zip code into our compare box to the right, choose between a commercial rate and a residential rate then click the ‘compare’ button. For a residential rate of over six months, it is suggested you select a fixed rate over a variable rate because it will help your energy bills be more consistent and you’ll know how much you can expect to pay on a monthly basis.
After completing this step, if you have any further questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to give us a call anytime at 1-800-971-4020 to speak to one of our expert energy consultants.
