Temps Soar, So Does Power Demand

As temperatures reached record-breaking highs this summer, it's no surprise that electric rates skyrocketed. The supply portion of your electricity bill is determined by both your usage and the current market supply rate.

With temperatures in Texas well above 100 degrees this summer, there has been a massive increase in the demand for electricity. Increased demand forces power plants to generate electricity in less efficient ways, which can drastically drive up the market cost.

However, Energy Plus®, TMA's endorsed electricity supplier, says there is good news on the horizon. As temperatures cool in the fall, the lower demand for electricity will reduce market costs. The month-to-month nature of variable rate products allows you to take advantage of any drop in market prices more quickly. In periods of falling prices, variable rates can be very advantageous.
