Looking Forward A Post-Covid Era For Energy Consumers

Looking Forward A Post-Covid Era For Energy Consumers

Last year's COVID lockdown caused devastation for energy consumers.  Energy consumption for the commercial sector drastically decreased. Unfortunately, energy consumption in the residential sector abruptly spiked. More than a year later since the beginning of the COVID 19 Pandemic, our country is moving into the Post-Covid Era. Are you and your loved ones making plans as we shift into the Post Covid Era?

Will you be moving soon? Perhaps you’re a business owner with the intention of reopening an existing business. Are you planning on opening a new business? Whatever your circumstances may be, you’re likely searching for an energy supplier like Sunwave Gas + Power. In this article we’ll talk about factors that can affect energy consumers across the country. 

Factors That Can Impact The Country’s Future Energy Prices:

Post-Covid Energy Demand

As we look forward, we now have a Covid vaccine and there is a mandatory order for wearing masks in public places. Consumers have taken extra precautions to reduce the spread of Covid. Businesses are expected to continue reopening throughout 2021 with new measures in place. As a result of businesses reopening energy consumption should rise in the commercial sector. 

Plans For A Greener Future

President Joe Biden has high expectations for a greener future. His plans include renovations on millions of homes and buildings to make them energy efficient. Biden’s plans also include a transition to 100% clean electricity by 2050, using renewable energy sources like wind and solar energy. Unfortunately, Solar and wind power are not always a reliable source of energy. Additionally, the renewable energy that is being produced is duplicated energy on our grid, not replaced. The main concern for energy consumers is that many have already seen an increase in energy prices. 

Temperature Impact 

We should all be conscious about our energy consumption. We have to be just as realistic about problems that may arise in the energy sector. For example, Winter Storm Uri that left millions of Texas consumers without power. Consumers were without power in freezing temperatures due to a lack of energy supply on the grid. 

The drastic climate changes can have severe impacts on energy consumption and prices because more electricity is required to heat and cool homes and buildings with drastic temperature changes. The long-range weather forecast indicated that 2021 Winter temperatures surrounding the Atlantic would rise above normal winter temperatures. When summer rolls around, the temperatures are anticipated to rise higher than normal temperatures as well. 

Natural Disasters

We all try to prepare for storms, floods, tornadoes, and hurricanes. Unfortunately, natural disasters are unpredictable and out of our control. Natural disasters can cause great devastation in the energy sector. For example, when hurricane season hits, oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico is expected to be disrupted. When oil drilling is disrupted, electricity prices are directly impacted. 

Another example is Winter storm Uri in Texas which caused energy prices to skyrocket, leaving a handful of residential consumers with energy bills over $10,000. When factoring energy consumption and prices for your home or business, these are things that you should keep in mind. By taking all of this into consideration, you can prepare accordingly.
