PLANO, Texas, May 13, 2003 — Texas Commercial Energy (TCE) announced it had grown its customer base by 10 percent during the month of April, as a result of signing 100 Texas businesses as energy customers.
A majority of the companies were returning to TCE as their preferred electricity provider, after they had been transferred to other providers following TCE’s filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in March 2003.
“First and foremost, customers tell us that they selected TCE for our unparalleled customer service,” said Steve Ousley, vice president of sales. “We are gratified to be reminded that, while competitive rates are important, the high quality of TCE service is appreciated enough by customers to spur them to resume service with TCE as quickly as possible.”
TCE President Mike Shirley added, “TCE’s reorganization plan to emerge from bankruptcy is on track, and our switching and billing guarantee remains the only one in the industry. As TCE renews its focus on businesses utilizing less than one megawatt of energy annually, we are reminded that businesses of all sizes appreciate being treated like customers, not ratepayers.”
