Bounce Energy Urges Houston Electricity Customers to Lock in a Spring Rate

March 07, 2012 - Houston residents are familiar with the increases in temperature and humidity that arrive in the summertime. Most even prefer this heat to what passes for winter in the Bayou City. However, no one was quite prepared for the record-setting temperatures and drought that swept across Houston last summer. In particular, Texans experienced the hottest summer ever measured in US history, and since Houstonians enjoy their air conditioners, overall energy usage and the price per kilowatt-hour (kWh) of energy both swelled to levels that created stress for many budgets.

Bounce Energy was there; understanding what the summer heat can do to a Houston electricity bill, Bounce has a few suggestions for residents and business owners. First, before June, July, and August actually arrive, Bounce is encouraging Houston energy customers, both new and current, to lock in a low fixed-rate electricity rate now in order to beat the summer heat and the higher energy bills it brings.

The strength of the contest rests in the fact that customers already know why they like Bounce - the great electricity rates, the superb rewards programs, and the excellent customer service. Thus, by just sharing their experiences with their friends, it's easy to refer them to Bounce Energy. Learn more about this contest by visiting the Bounce Energy Facebook page.

Bounce Energy recommends choosing a 12- or 24-month fixed-rate plans - the Terrific 12 and Tremendous 24 use traditional power sources, while the Organic Power Fixed 12 is a green plan that uses 100% renewable energy. With one of these plans, Houston energy customers lock in a great rate for their home for next 12 or 24 months. Moreover, when it comes time to renew that plan in a year or two, it will be spring once more, which most likely means good, comparably low seasonal rates.

Second, as a Houston electric company, Bounce Energy urges residents to be energy efficient this summer. With sweltering temperatures on the horizon for Houston, now is the time to start preparing. Two energy efficiency tips to consider when you prepare for the ruthless Houston heat are installing shades facing the south that will block the summer sun and having air conditioner units fine-tuned before the heat hits. By being conscious of the energy being used and by locking in a good rate now, Bounce Energy is confident that Houston electricity customers will see a huge difference in their bills this summer.
