Ranchero Power Updates

Texas temps could normalize in July but still a lot of summer to go.

Our power-market analysts are continuing to monitor summer energy pricing. Texas temperatures could start to normalize for July – BUT August weather is still too far out on the calendar to predict. Our advice? Texas summers are unpredictable. Continue to watch your energy usage so you stay within your utility bill budget this summer.


Texas weather shows likely “average” temps for July 2022.

Pre-Summer Heatwave – Keep eye on usage this week.

Higher energy prices and high power usage are a poor combination for anyone trying to keep energy costs low. Texans are in for another early heatwave this week. Even ERCOT announced possible record-breaking usage for the state’s power grid. High temps usually mean a home’s Air Conditioning is churning more frequently and for longer periods of time. Ranchero Power wants to remind customers to keep an eye on power usage this week and to develop good power habits for the warm season ahead. 


Various forecasts for the region predict
higher-than-normal average temperatures for the week of 6-6-2022



TIP: Simply turning the thermostat a few degrees up is one of the easiest ways to help lower electricity costs during the summer months.

AVOID VARIABLE RATES THIS SUMMER – Finding average rates below 12¢/kWh is getting harder to find as wholesale energy prices rise. For customers on contracts that are due to expire in the next 1-6 weeks, Ranchero Power recommends finding a new electricity contract now and avoid renewing during peak summer months.
