...written in response to surveys conducted with CEOs and business owners who expressed frustration with the procurement process.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) October 14, 2014
Now, more than ever, buyers need help navigating the maze that is deregulated electricity. Since the inception of deregulation over a decade ago, the electricity buying process has grown more complex as a result of increased market volatility and the proliferation of suppliers.
Developed by Texzon Utilities, this guide was written in response to surveys conducted with CEOs and business owners who expressed frustration with the procurement process.
The survey brought out several "pain points," including:
- Confusing or hidden charges on electricity bills
- Not knowing if they are comparing apples-to-apples on rate quotes
- Uncertainty that they are paying too much or getting locked in to a bad contract
- Difficulty budgeting because of the volatility of electricity rates
The "Savvy Buyer's Guide to Deregulated Electricity" was designed to address these and many other issues and questions. The eBook, which is divided into nine sections, covers every aspect of the procurement process and also includes a glossary of energy terms. Some of the sections include:
Part 1: "Buying Electricity in a Deregulated Market" reveals opportunities and pitfalls of purchasing deregulated electricity and why becoming more knowledgeable is key to taking advantage of big savings.
Part 3: "Breaking Down Your Electric Bill" details each charge on a typical electric bill and how to spot ancillary charges which can make the actual rate much higher than what was originally quoted.
Part 7: "Developing an Energy Management Strategy" explains why a volatile energy market dictates that buyers should be looking at future pricing and evaluating their current contracts long before the expiration date, looking to "hedge their bets," by extending the term or writing longer-term contracts to lock-in lower rates and achieve budget certainty.
Part 8: "Using an Energy Expert To Save Money" talks about what to look for with electricity brokers and how they can leverage their experience and long-term supplier relationships to bring competitive bids to the table.
The eBook was written for business owners, operations or facilities managers, and anyone responsible for the critical and sometimes daunting task of buying electricity.
