Texas competitive energy retailer Frontier Utilities announced on April 10 that it is offering commercial customers an instant quote and easy online self-enrollment system through its proprietary Get-a-Quote service, available immediately.
Despite the maturity of the commercial market in Texas, with a high percentage of businesses having switched electricity suppliers, the availability of self-service pricing and enrollment is almost non-existent, Frontier said.
Instead, business owners often work with a third-party broker, which can add significant cost to the electricity price for their business, according to the competitive supplier.
“Frontier Utilities’ new system brings greater transparency and the opportunity for cost savings to businesses in Texas,” the company stated.
“Core to our strategy is the development of proprietary software solutions that enable Frontier Utilities to better serve its customers,” said Chief Information Officer Suresh Guddanti.
“With our new system, energy supply prices are de-mystified [and] enrollment is made easy and is done directly, allowing businesses to avoid costly consulting and brokerage fees embedded in their price,” stated Frontier CEO Jay Hellums. “As with our residential online systems, we expect to see significant growth in commercial sales through this unique new system.”
